Oberlin Finally Coughs Up $36.6M To Bakery It Called ‘Racist’

  • Famously leftist Oberlin College in Ohio finally forked over $36.6 million to Gibson’s Bakery and Food Mart after years of attempting to overturn a jury decision that the college had defamed the local business.
  • In 2016, Allyn Gibson, the son of Gibson’s Bakery and Food Mart owners David Gibson and Allyn Gibson, chased and tackled a Black student who was suspected of stealing a bottle of wine on Nov. 9, 2016. Two students at Oberlin College, who are also Black and were friends with the student who stole the bottle, got involved in the incident, which became physical.
  • Oberlin College’s $36.6 million payment to the bakery covers the damages awarded, legal fees, and interest accrued.
