Teacher Students walk out of anthropology lecture after professor uses the word n****r

A local story that has become a national one:

Students walk out of anthropology lecture after professor uses the word n****r

Quote:
According to students, during lecture for the course ANT 212: Cultural Freedoms Hate Speech, Blasphemy, and Pornography, anthropology professor Lawrence Rosen asked students, What is worse, a white man punching a black man, or a white man calling a black man a n****r?

The lecture focused on the topic of oppressive symbolism.

He was describing what is acceptable as free speech and what is not, explained Devyn Holliday 18 in an interview with The Daily Princetonian.

According to students, Rosen allegedly said the word n****r twice more as part of discussions after his original question.
The course has been cancelled as of today.
