Oberlin College in Ohio must pay a bakery more than $11 million after labeling the local establishment as racist. The college lost the court case to Gibson's Bakery on Friday, according to the Chronicle-Telegram. A jury ruled in favor of the bakery, Allyn Gibson, and Allyn's son David Gibson on charges that Oberlin and Meredith Raimondo, the college's vice president, libeled and intentionally inflicted emotional distress on the Gibsons and interfered with the bakery's business. "All the Gibsons ever wanted was for the truth to come out," the Gibsons' attorney Lee Plakas said. "All they ever asked from the beginning, from Oberlin College, was to use its power and influence and might to tell the truth, and that letter never came. But the jury sent the letter that was louder and more visible and more public."

"Oberlin College in Ohio may be one of the most egregious politically correct campuses in the nation. Back in 2013, the campus closed down for a day of "racial sensitivity training" despite the fact that the administration knew that the supposed "racial incident" that prompted this "crisis" (someone spotted wearing Klan robes on campus) was a hoax.

Then in 2016, Black Lives Matter and a number of super-woke Oberlin students launched protests and a boycott against Gibson's Bakery, a family-owned and run establishment that has been a fixture of downtown Oberlin since 1885. What prompted this? Gibson's had the temerity to apprehend and charge three students with shoplifting (they later pled guilty), but because of the race of the offenders, the Oberlin College wokerati accused Gibson's with racism, racial profiling, and probably genocide for all I know."

I got rejected by Oberlin College.

Do you want to know why I got rejected? It's a really funny reason. They "lost my application." And bless your heart for applying!

Because every question on the application was answered with a question.
