Tim Wise event at Hofstra University is a flop
On March 12th, Hofstra University in Hempstead, NY hosted Tim Wise.
The event was organized by the Hofstra Student Chapter of the NAACP. Tim Wise was paid a lavish speakers’ fee funded by student tuition.
The auditorium was less than 10% full.
Usually when Wise speaks on a college campus, a few professors will require their students to attend. They Wise brags about the packed audience. This is what happens when no one is forced to attend his speech for a class.
Wise met opposition at Indiana University where about twenty people protested him. Protests are expected at some of his other stops other the next few weeks.
