Professor "No Longer Working at the University of Memphis" After Hate-Filled Tweets

As of today, Asst Professor Zandria Robinson is no longer employed at the University of Memphis according to the university. This is after she came under fire for a series of anti-white tweets she put out in connection with the Confederate flag controversy.

This is very sad and adds more fuel to the fire as American race relations continue to spiral downward. It is also unfortunate that the Confederate flag controversy is generating so much anger. I personally favor removing the flag from Southern state houses. If only it could be done quietly and without fanfare.

But Robinson's tweets-protected speech to be sure- make it clear that she cannot treat all her students fairly in a comfortable environment. What she doesn't understand is that that kind of language directed towards whites is just as bad as that directed toward blacks.

Probably true... but its the first time Gary has commented positively on the need to prevent a hostile environment on campus.
