The Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies Department has also condemned Wagner on their front page:
The Department of WGSS is deeply concerned by President Wagner’s decision to use the 3/5ths compromise as a model of compromise. That poor choice contributes to a culture of discrimination. The entire community is shamed by the statement. As our colleagues in History and African American Studies have shown, education in the genealogies of racism and racial discourse is an intrinsic part of a good education, and one we support and encourage at Emory.
