WSU Campus R’s Call for Prof’s Termination

Full post by Palousitics here

Washington State University College Republicans are calling for a WSU professor to be fired for his alleged use of a racial slur against a club member during the group’s Nov. 2 demonstration on illegal immigration. WSU senior Dan Ryder officially demanded during a Tuesday press conference that the university take action against John Streamas, an assistant professor in the department of comparative ethnic studies. “A person who teaches about cultural values and diversity is not qualified to teach when that person attacks students for their beliefs,” Ryder said on behalf of both the WSU chapter of College Republicans and the Washington College Republican Federation. Ryder said he hoped Streamas would be reprimanded and be required to go through sensitivity training, at a minimum. Streamas could not be reached for comment -- Moscow-Pullman Daily News.

Question: Do you think a prof of WSU comparative ethnics studies should be fired for using a so-called racial slur, "white s***bag" against a Campus Republican?
