This is false. Carleton Coon resigned as president of the American
Association for Physical Anthropology, which is an unremunerated position.
He was asked to resign by a majority of the organisation's membership
who felt that he was putting forward his own views as those of the
organisation. In other words, that he was abusing his position as
president to promote his own political agenda.
Coon did not resign from his tenured position at Harvard University.

The names of a few, just a few, scholars who deny the "politically correct
orthodoxy", as you so quaintly call it, and haven't been booted out:

Vincent Sarich, Berkeley
J. Philippe Rushton, University of Western Ontario
Michael Levin, City College of New York
Roger Pearson
Richard Lynn
Linda Gottfredson
Robert Gordon
