"It's the white professors who can't get tenure for hook or crook, but the black professors get hired as full professors with tenure," said Bob Russ, an English professor at Livingstone College in Salisbury, N.C., one of three white plaintiffs in a case that could go to trial this fall.
Russ, who was twice denied tenure and notified in December that his contract would not be renewed, said a review of academic programs conducted in the early 1990s demonstrates how Livingstone set out to systematically remove whites from leadership positions.
The review recommends naming black professors to replace several white departmental leaders.Notations in the margins include "bring in black Ph.D chair," "hire black chemist" and "build up science and math (black)."
Russ said the notations were written by Barbara Brown, a black woman who was vice president for academic affairs at the time.

"It's a plan to remove white faculty from positions of power as department or division chairs and replace them with African-American faculty," said plaintiff Bob Russ, Ph.D., who teaches English at Livingstone.
In the margins of the document, handwritten instructions read: "English ?Bring in black Ph.D. chair," "Build up Sciences and Math (Black)" and "Hire black chemist $48,000 ?$50,000."
"It names a salary far in excess of white faculty's salary," Russ said.

"It's the White professors who can't get tenure for hook or crook, but the Black professors get hired as full professors with tenure," said Bob Russ, an English professor at Livingstone College in Salisbury, N.C., one of three White plaintiffs in a case that could go to trial later this year.
The plaintiffs in some of the lawsuits have charged that Black colleges are trying to maintain their racial identities by limiting the number of White professors and administrators.Mr. Russ claims that Livingstone College attempts to systematically remove Whites from leadership positions and says his case is a prime example.Last December, he was told by the institution that his contract would not be renewed, after twice being denied tenure.
Mr. Russ' claim said his tenure review recommends naming Black professors to replace several White department heads.Notations scribbled in the margins of his review read, "bring in Black, Ph.D.," "hire Black chemist" and "build up science and math (Black)," he said in a published report.
