Star Parker spoke some yrs ago at conservative Christian college social work class

It was during the 90s. She had been invited by the Young Republicans, and her presence was strongly supported by college admin.

The students and prof in the class had together formed a list of topics they wanted to ask her about. Her comments on poverty, etc contradicted what they had learned in their study.

Shortly before she came to address the class, the admin told the prof that no questions would be permitted. The prof then told the students.

Many in the class were very angry and disillusioned. I think some still believed the school welcomed free and open discussion.

Note: IIRC she was promoting a Far Right view of poverty causes and what the federal government could do to alleviate the effects of poverty.
