University professor who lost job for 'black privilege' comment is reinstated, wins back lost pay

Central Florida University has been ordered to rehire Charles Negy, an assistant professor who was fired for a June 2020 tweet about "black privilege."

An arbitrator recently overruled the school's decision to fire him and ordered salary lost during the firing period be paid.

Negy's since-deleted tweet reads: "Black privilege is real: Besides affirm. action, special scholarships and other set asides, being shielded from legitimate criticism is a privilege."

According to Blaze Media, the tweet didn't sit well with many students and faculty.
