Professor fired for racially charged remarks on Fox News

Professor fired for racially charged remarks on Fox News

A New Jersey community college has fired an adjunct professor who was suspended after appearing on Fox News.

As an indignant Carlson labeled Durden's arguments "hostile and separatist and crazy" and said he hoped she wasn't "speaking for anyone else", the professor did not ID herself as an employee of the college.

On June 20, three days after she addressed the school board regarding the incident at a public meeting, she was sacked.

In the statement, Munroe acknowledged that Durden's appearance on the show did not mention the college, but said, "her employment with us and potential impact on students required our immediate review into what seemed to have become a very contentious and divisive issue".

"You white people are angry because you couldn't use your white privilege card".

The controversy began after Durden's appearance, during which she defended the Black Lives Matter movement's decision to host a Memorial Day celebration in New York City to which only black people were invited.

"Boo hoo hoo. You white people are angry because you couldn't use your white privilege card", she told Carlson.

Just two days after the interview, the AP reports that Essex suspended Durden with pay.

She was later fired after addressing the school community during an "open forum" held Tuesday, the institution president said.

"In consideration of the College's mission, and the impact that this matter has had on the College's fulfillment of its mission, we can not maintain an employment relationship with the adjunct", Munroe said in a lengthy statement Friday.

Stay on topic - This helps keep the thread focused on the discussion at hand.

In a statement, Munroe said that families who contacted the school over her comments expressed frustration. "The character of this institution mandates that we embrace diversity, inclusion, and unity", he explained.

In his statement, Munroe made it clear that his college is committed to a welcoming environment to all students of a variety of races, backgrounds and cultures.

"In consideration of the college's mission, and the impact that this matter has had on the college's fulfillment of its mission, we can not maintain an employment relationship with the adjunct".

"What I say to that is "boo hoo hoo".

Durden told NJ.com that she received support from students and staff members after her firing.

Now her attorney, Leslie Farber, told NJ.com that they are considering legal action against Essex County College.

"I fully believe that institutions of higher learning must provide a safe space for students..."
