I am glad the school made the right move here.Thomas is anti- semitic
DETROIT (AP) — Wayne State University says it’ll no longer offer the Helen Thomas Spirit of Diversity Award, citing recent comments made by the longtime journalist.
In a statement Friday, the Detroit school says it “encourages free speech and open dialogue,“ but strongly condemns what it says are ”anti-Semitic remarks” made by Thomas on Thursday.
According to The Detroit News and the Detroit Free Press, the Wayne State alumna said during a speech in Dearborn that Congress, the White House, Hollywood and Wall Street are owned by “Zionists.”
Thomas resigned in June as a Hearst Newspaper columnist over comments she made calling on Israelis to get “out of Palestine.”
