A professor at Florida State University suddenly resigned his teaching position after the school discovered that he used fake data to impugn white people as racists.
The professor, Eric Stweart, not only used fake data in his papers, six of those studies have now been retracted over the scandal.
Per The Blaze:
The Florida Standard reports that Eric Stewart, a fellow of the American Society of Criminology, has had six studies retracted in recent years, after being accused of falsifying data first in 2019 by a professor named Justin Pickett from the University of Albany.
Pickett, who worked with Stewart on a retracted 2011 study, claims that Stewart muddied the waters in his papers. Pickett released a document critical of the professor called “The Stewart Retractions: A Quantitative and Qualitative Analysis.”
Pickett says he asked that a study he was involved with be retracted because the data was altered to the point of mathematical impossibility.
The study reported that as populations of black and Hispanic Americans grew, the public desire for discriminatory sentences also grew. However, Pickett later noticed that the sample size of the study somehow grew from 500 to over 1,000 and the number of counties polled dropped from 326 to 91.
Four more studies published between 2006 and 2015 were also retracted.
Stewart initially played the victim and accused detractors of being “data thugs” when the accusations were first raised.
After the papers were debunked and retracted, Stewart suddenly resigned from his $190,000 a year job. He did not give a reason and the school is stonewalling questions.
But we know why.
He is a leftist liar who was finally outed as such.
