cash 100-dollar billDespite a conscientious outcry from faculty and student leaders concerning human rights abuses, Cornell University administrators are proceeding with an academic partnership with a Chinese University.

With a multi-million-dollar deal on the line, Cornell administrators plainly overruled the objections. Derryck Green of the Project 21 Black Leadership Network was shocked to learn that the school was going ahead with the deal after earlier reports indicated otherwise.

"It just seems to me that they went through the motions of having the disagreements being aired publicly," he tells One News Now. "But looking back, it seems like it was strategic in what they were doing, because it seems as if they had their minds already made up to partner with the university."

Green

Green told American Family Radio in April that a partnership with China would be a grave mistake. He now adds that Cornell has some moral shortcomings.

"They're missing the moral component to partnering with China and Peking University in this decision," he submits. "I think that Cornell is kind of dodging the most important issue to justify going back on its decision."

The Free Beacon reports Cornell is slated to earn around $1 million each year of the partnership.
