Naima Lowe, a self-described black queer artist and educator who taught video and performance art at Evergreen State, received $240,000 from the college after she filed a discrimination and hostile work environment claim, according to college spokesperson Zach Powers.
Lowe has been on personal leave since the beginning of the school year after she claimed she was the victim of “online attacks on her,” according to a letter sent to colleagues. She officially resigned Dec. 6.
Lowe came under fire after she was caught on video berating her white co-workers.
“You are now these motherf***ers that we’re pushing against,” Lowe told her co-workers on the school’s Equity Council in a viral video earlier this year. “You can’t see your way out of your own *ss…This sh** is literally going to kill me.”
“White supremacy…lives and breathes within every single white person standing here right now,” Lowe said. “I refuse to shut my mouth and let white people set this agenda…the white gays, the white middle class assimilationist motherf***ing gays, took over the [gay] movement with their assimilationist goals.”
