College professor fired in wake of Fox News appearance

An African-American professor has been sacked by her New Jersey university after comments she made in defence of Black Lives Matter during an interview with U.S. network Fox News.
In an interview with NJ.com on Friday, Durden compared her experience to a rape victim who is blamed for the rape and said that the college "should be a safe place for me".
On June 20, three days after she addressed the school board regarding the incident at a public meeting, she was sacked.
"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", Durden said in a mocking fashion to Carlson.
When Carlson asked her her thoughts, Durden interrupted the host, saying: "Boo hoo hoo".
"Boo hoo hoo. You white people are angry because you couldn't use your white privilege card", she told Carlson.
Days after she was suspended, Durden compared her situation to a "public lynching". After a Tuesday meeting with college officials, she was sacked. He also had this to say about Durden's remarks: "Racism can not be fought with more racism".
Stay on topic - This helps keep the thread focused on the discussion at hand.
Durden was a frequent guest on Fox News, appearing on The Kelly Files, Fox & Friends, and more, typically in defense of the Black Lives Matter movement.
