11. Oberlin College

Oberlin, Ohio

This year, Oberlin was home to a host of antisemitism scandals, most notably surrounding the social media posts of Professor Joy Karega’s. The Oberlin administration was slow to investigate and condemn the teacher, and when it finally did launch an inquiry into her antisemitic statements -- which ultimately resulted in her termination in November 2016 -- many faculty members passionately defended her. Some teachers and students charged that unreasonable action was taken against her, a black woman, due to racism and pressure from Jewish alumni. Days after she was fired, the home of a Jewish professor was vandalized, and a note stating “GAS JEW DIE” was found on his doorpost. In addition, a number of Jewish students received an anonymous email message blaming “evil Jews” and “Zionists” for 9/11. (Photo credit: Wikipedia.)
