A North Carolina professor said over the weekend that he was suspended after he was caught writing in the New York Times comment section that there was a link between the Baltimore riots and “strange” names that black people had instead of having traditional white names.


According to WTVD, Duke University Professor Jerry Hough responded to a "New York Times" editorial titled “How Racism Doomed Baltimore” by suggesting that the author’s attitude was what was “wrong” with the black community. “

"The blacks get symbolic recognition in an utterly incompetent mayor who handled this so badly from beginning to end that her resignation would be demanded if she were white,” he wrote. “The blacks get awful editorials like this that tell them to feel sorry for themselves.” Hough also said that “the Asians” faced discrimination throughout U.S. history: “They didn’t feel sorry for themselves, but worked doubly hard.”

I wonder what he is the professor of? Certainly not history? To think that someone's name has anything to do with how successful or unsuccessful you are in life is silly. This man looks too old to be teaching anything.
