How many pounds of cake flour can one buy with $11.2 million dollars? 33,959,975 pounds.

Oberlin College, the oldest coeducational liberal arts college in the United States and the second oldest continuously operating coeducational institute of higher learning in the world. Oberlin is known for its liberal attitude toward sexuality and gender expression. Oberlin has been consistently ranked among the friendliest college campuses for LGBTQ students by multiple publications, including The AdvocateNewsweek, and The Princeton Review.,

This activism, maybe better described as social terrorism, has cost Oberlin College $11.2 Million dollars.

A jury has ruled that Oberlin College, one of the nation’s most left-wing institutions of higher learning, must pay the proprietors of Gibson’s Bakery in Oberlin, Ohio, $11.2 million in damages for libel, slander, and other disruptions that the college caused in the business by encouraging false charges of racism.

Punitive damage phase Started June 11, and that could triple the damages to $33 million.

The verdict sends a strong message that colleges and universities cannot simply wind up and set loose student social justice warriors and then wash their hands of the consequences. In this case, a wholly innocent 5th-generation bakery was falsely accused of being racist and having a history racial profiling after stopping three black Oberlin College students from shoplifting. The students eventually pleaded guilty, but not before large protests and boycotts intended to destroy the bakery and defame the owners. The jury appears to have accepted that Oberlin College facilitated the wrongful conduct against the bakery.

The lawsuit stems from an incident on Nov. 9, 2016, in which a black Oberlin student tried to “steal or otherwise illegally obtain” wine from Gibson’s, according to the complaint. Following the incident, Allyn Gibson, who is white, and an owner and employee at Gibson’s Bros. Inc, which operates Gibson’s Food Mart and Bakery, pursued and “engaged in a physical altercation” with the student, according to the court’s summary judgment. The student and two friends, who are also black, were arrested.

“I am at a loss for words,” 64-year-old David Gibson told Legal Insurrection in an exclusive interview. “Two-and-a-half years of putting up with this has been very difficult and overwhelming. I just want to let people know across the country that this can happen to anyone else, but we stayed and worked together as a family and fought against this. In many ways, what we wanted from Oberlin College the jury gave to us.  They said we were not racists and that the college should have said so when all this started.”

“I thank the jury for seeing what we have seen from the beginning of this,” he said

Additionally, the jurors found Ms. Raimondo responsible for the interference of business relationships. The jury set compensatory damages for Gibson’s at $11.2 million.
