Do you think this professor is racist or just misunderstood? Click here to read about professor actually fueled by racism. – NewsOne Staff

From TheTowerLight.com:

A Towson adjunct faculty member was recently fired after using a racial slur in a class.

Allen Zaruba was teaching his Visual Concepts class on Monday, Feb. 22, and discussing “Themes of Contemporary Art,” a textbook by Jean Robertson and Craig McDaniel, which Zaruba described as “very politically incorrect.”

While reviewing a chapter about identity and the body, Zaruba referred to himself as “a nigger on the corporate plantation.”

Text continues after gallery…

Zaruba said the phrase was not meant to be racist, but that he regretted it as soon as he said it.

“I am not a racist. I never have been. I’ve been raised overseas and in other cultures. It just absolutely kills me,” he said, later adding that he serves in the prison ministry, teaches Sunday school and that his stepfather was a black man and he “loved him dearly.”
