Nikole Hannah-Jones Rejects Presidency of UNC

By RACHEL TINSHENN

THE PEOPLE’S REPUBLIC OF CHAPEL HILL, NC – In a stunning development, Pulitzer Prize winner Nikole Hannah-Jones rejected yet another round of incentives/restitution/atonement offered by the UNC Board of Trustees designed to keep her mouth shut keep her employed at UNC-CH. 

The latest round of perks included tenure, a triple-matched 401(k), unlimited use of the university Cut ‘n’ Color hair salon, and the presidency of UNC-Chapel Hill. 

Hannah-Jones, who won a Pulitzer for The 1619 Project, said in a press release, “As a woman of color, I refuse to lead an organization so entrenched in systemic racism. A Black woman should have led this place a long time ago.”

Hannah-Jones, a Pulitzer winner, said it was equally offensive that a system so rooted in oppression, racism, and hatred would actually elect Black student Lamar Richards as student body president just to show how un-racist it is, which proves the systemic oppression in place at the university. 

Hannah-Jones, who sometimes goes by the moniker “Nikole Hannah-Pulitzer-Jones,” due to the fact that she won a Pulitzer, also rejected an offer to create a “Free Expression Well” in which students are allowed to spray paint SJW expressions on The Old Well and throw un-woke students down it to see if they float.
