NC Professor To Students: ‘Americanize’ Your Names ‘Because This Is America’
A professor in North Carolina was handing out biochemistry tests when he had difficulty reading one of the names and remarked that students should “Americanize” names “because this is America.”
[su_center_ad]NC State says the professor, Charles Hardin, who made the comment will apologize.
ABC 11 reports, “A school spokesperson said NC State leadership met with Hardin who admitted making the comment, but said it was made in jest.”
It appears that the students can expect a really crappy apology for this:
“The professor realizes that his statement devalued the heritage of some students and was inappropriate for the classroom or anywhere else on the university’s campus,” the spokesperson said.
The university said Hardin will apologize when his class meets on Wednesday and the department head will meet with any students who would like to express any concerns.
