Washington Post, Students at Georgetown Law Call for Changes After Professor Used Slur in Class:
Hundreds of students have asked Georgetown Law to confront “deeply embedded” problems at the school after a professor used an anti-Asian slur in class earlier this month, asking the school to demonstrate a clear commitment to diversity and inclusion.
A brief video clip recently shared on Twitter appears to show the professor asking a student to respond, addressing him with what sounds like, “What about you, Mr. … Chinaman,” and then saying he should ask for his name.
The professor apologized, and the school’s dean acknowledged the use of a derogatory term to the campus community last week. ...
[M]any on campus called on administrators to do more to confront what they called an urgent need to address institutional problems — such as making implicit bias training mandatory for faculty — and to more publicly acknowledge the incident.
