GET WOKE GO BROKE !!!! - Oberlin college vs Gibson bakery

Oberlin college was known for being the most woke college on the planet,where students have spoken out about everything from microaggressions to the cultural appropriation of sushi.

The dispute began on Nov. 9, 2016, when an Oberlin student tried to pay for a bottle of wine with a fake ID, and the store clerk noticed that the student had hidden two more bottles of wine under his coat. Allyn D. Gibson, a son and a grandson of the owners, chased the student out onto the street and tackled him, according to some witnesses, and two friends of the student, also students at Oberlin, joined in the scuffle. The jury prosecuted the students, who are African-American and who pleaded guilty to various charges.

On next day, hundreds of students and others gathered in the park across the street from the general store to protest the arrests. Its dean of students, Meredith Raimondo and others of actively supporting the protesters. Oberlin officials bought them pizza, authorized the use of student funds to pay for gloves for the cold weather and helped them to hand out fliers urging a boycott of the store.

On top of that Dr. Raimondo, had helped hand out fliers saying: “Don’t Buy. This is a racist establishment with a long account of racial profiling and discrimination.”

And jury found that the college and its dean of students had defamed the business by siding with the protesters. This week, the jury awarded the bakery $33 million in punitive damages, on top of the $11 million in compensatory damages awarded the week prior.
