Lorman, MS – Myrlie Evers-Williams, wife of Civil Rights leader Medgar Evers, now has a very nice paying job. Alcorn State will pay her $100,000, give her a free place to live, and give her use of a state vehicle so she can talk to students, or write a book, or, well we’re not exactly sure what she’s getting paid for. Don’t get me wrong, if I was Myrlie Evers-Williams, I would take the job too, but is this a wise use of taxpayer dollars? Depends on what she’s going to talk about. Is she going to remind students how much better they have it today than she did? Or is this former NAACP and twice failed congressional candidate in liberal California going to travel the state to open up and pour salt into old wounds? We here at Mississippi Conservative certainly hope she’s on board with moving forward into a non-racist future rather than reignite the divisive ways of the past.
A much bigger issue here, according to our source on the inside, is that her job was created out of thin air without following policy and procedure. Her job was not approved by the IHL (Institution of Higher Learning – Mississippi) nor was it posted for at least five days prior to her hiring. There is also questions of the effective date of her employment, as President M. Christopher Brown in a public statement said, “Mrs. Evers will begin her tenure as Distinguished Scholar-in-Residence after President’s Day.” We did our research and have not found evidence refuting this claim, and M. Chris Brown certainly does appear to be in violation of policy and procedure.
Another issue, according to our inside source, is that President M. Christopher Brown also violated policy and procedure during by giving employees a pay raise who have only been on campus for 6 months or less despite a requirement that employees must serve at least two semesters or at least a full year. At the same time, employees who have served longer than one year did not receive their pay raise.
If that’s the case, how long do you think it will take for this long time liberal Democrat activist to get another raise?
