Since then, some of Robinson’s old tweets have surfaced, in which she blames whites for every lethal riot in U.S. history, blasts Dick and Jane stories for

In one particularly strange pair of tweets made in March 2015, Robinson admitted to having severe premenstrual dysphoric disorder (PMDD), a condition characterized by emotional and mood problems. Due to her
difficulty treating it, Robinson theorized her menstrual mood swings may

Here are 2 screenshots of her tweets that she has since deleted from her account, but not before Campus Reform captured them.
Robinson left the University of Memphis, not because the university fired her. Instead, she resigned from the public U. of Memphis for a new position at the private Rhodes College, Memphis, TN.
In fact, U. of Memphis’ Dean of the College of Arts and Science Dr. Thomas Nenon brown-nosed Robinson, calling her “a valued faculty member” who he had “hoped…would have stayed.”
Meanwhile, Robinson’s new colleagues at Rhodes College are ecstatic over her joining them. Dr. Charles McKinney, the Chair of Africana studies at Rhodes, praised Robinson as the “future of African-American studies, of Southern studies,” and denounced her critics as “hard-right, anti-academic” racists.
So much for America’s institutions of higher learning.
