Lisa Durden, adjunct professor at Essex County College in Newark NJ, has been suspended from her teaching position for her racist comments mocking white people on Fox News.
Durden appeared on Tucker Carlson supporting the segregation of whites and blacks at a Memorial Day ceremony: “What I say to that is boo-hoo-hoo, you white people are angry because you couldn’t use your ‘white privilege’ card to get invited to the Black Lives Matter’s all-black Memorial Day celebration! Wow!”
Tucker Carlson recently had an especially obnoxious guest who defended the idea of blacks excluding whites from a Memorial Day celebration. The the explicit irony was completely lost on this “progressive” professor.
Lisa Durden had a fiery debate with Tucker Carlson defending a gathering of Black Lives Matter devotees that banned white people, but then found that she was suspended from her teaching position at Essex County College in Newark, New Jersey. Durden blames the controversial appearance for her suspension despite she had been on other Fox News shows previous to that one.
In the combative segment TheBlaze reported previously, Durden mocked white people saying, “What I say to that is boo-hoo-hoo, you white people are angry because you couldn’t use your ‘white privilege’ card to get invited to the Black Lives Matter’s all-black Memorial Day celebration! Wow!”
When Durden tried to return to Essex County College to teach mass communication and popular culture and two speech courses, she was told to report to Human Resources after canceling her classes.
Durden received a letter from Jeffrey Lee, vice president for academic affairs, saying that she was suspended indefinitely. Although it didn’t specifically mention the appearance on the Tucker Carlson show as a reason for the dismissal, Durden says administration officials cited it when speaking to her.
According to Durden, Human Resources officials told her that someone complained that she had associated herself with the college while on the show. She says she never did that on the show, which TheBlaze posted here.
Durden has now lawyered up to challenge the suspension.”
The Black Lives Matter fanatic will have to put her teaching career on hold for the time being, hopefully giving her time to reflect on how regressive her ideas really are.
