The University of Alabama dean who argued that the American flag is racist was paid $350,000 to resign from his post according to documents obtained by local media sources.

Former University of Alabama Assistant Vice President and Dean of Students James Riley resigned in September after a Breitbart News report that disclosed that Riley had argued that the American flag represents racism.

“The [American flag emoji] flag represents a systemic history of racism for my people,” Riley wrote in a 2017 tweet. “Police are a part of that system. Is it that hard to see the correlation?”


A local news report published last week revealed that Riley was paid $346,200 to step down from his position. {snip}
