#FireTimFord

As students of Sacramento State, we demand that economics professor Tim Ford’s employment status with Sacramento State is terminated due to video evidence of racially biased behavior off campus.

Why is this important?

Due to the fact that the student body of Sacramento State primarily consists of minority students, it is important to us that we cultivate an educational environment that is free from racial bias and discrimination. In order to ensure that students feel exempt from bigotry in the classroom, professors that have exhibited a blatant prejudice against minorities, both on and off campus, need to be dismissed from employment at Sac State.


Reasons for signing

  • Racists should not be teaching minority students. PeriodT.
  • As a student of color, it is extremely disturbing to see faculty member behave in such a racist manner. We are not comfortable with your presence at Sac State.
  • Racists should not be teaching POC students, or other white students for ever becoming monsters like them. Frankly, it's absurd that any institution that touts intelligence, integrity, and authority even has a petition for such an obvious issue. If this guy is not fired, you might as well tell future and current students to "get over racism, because it will have no consequence, and we're totally fine with that."
