‘Save Your Money!’ Black Lives Matter leader lands teaching gig at Yale University

The Black Lives Matter movement’s most vocal leader just landed himself a dream job: teaching at Yale University.

Yes, the prestigious Ivy League college.

Starting this fall, Deray McKesson will be a “guest lecturer,” teaching a one-credit course titled “Transformational Leadership in the #BlackLivesMatter Movement,” Campus Reform reported. According to Campus Reform:

McKesson, whom the university describes as a “civil rights activist and social media leader,” will teach a course titled “Transformational Leadership in the #BlackLivesMatter Movement,” as part of Yale Divinity School’s “Transformational Leadership for Church and Society” program. “A young leader of the Black Lives Matter Movement,” a syllabus for the course reads, “DeRay McKesson will present case studies about the work of organizing, public advocacy, civil disobedience, and social change, through both Leadership of Presence, and Leadership in the Social Media.”

The reading list for the course is rife with material boosting the Black Lives Matter movement and radical reform. McKesson dabbled in academia in the past. His LinkedIn profile says he was a middle-school math teacher from 2007 to 2009 and worked in the human resources department for the Minneapolis public school system before becoming a full-time BLM activist, Campus Reform reported. McKesson’s social media critics pan him as a consummate opportunist traveling the country to fuel the racist rhetoric that’s dividing a nation.
