“Professor Resigns After Racist Remarks”


A Murray State University professor has been suspended following a racial remark he made to a black student. The political science professor’s name is Mark Wattier.

Freshman Arlene Johnson was in Mark Wattier’s class early last semester and questioned him when he started a class film early before class was even scheduled to start, especially when she arrived on time.

Johnson says Wattier responded by saying “slaves never showed up on time either.”

The comment was not only racial but it was insulting. Johnson dropped the class and filed a complaint with the university. In the meantime, the professor, Mark Wattier is on unpaid suspension.

  1. People think they don’t have to guard their tongues anymore.

    After Obama became President, it seems that the seething racism that had always been lurking beneath the surface, erupted explosivel­y on the floor of the U.S. Congress when Rep. Joe Wilson shouted “You lie!” at President Obama.

    When the then-Minor­ity leader, John Boo-hoo Boehner, did not vigorously publicly reprimand or rebuke him, it gave license to not only other conservati­ve politician­s, but people nationwide­, on taking cues from their political leaders, to unleash, in untold volumes of nasty rhetoric, waiting to escape for decades, upon anyone, anywhere, anytime. It is truly ugly.

      The ideals of equality were only just starting to jell in their brains when, all of a sudden, a black man was elected to be President.

  2. Evene if this girl had been an hour late for class, it doesn’t excuse a racist slur from the professor.

    The sad thing is, that’s the way he must think.

  3. It’s too bad he was able to resign. It should have been an involuntar­y terminatio­n.

    On another note, Arlene Johnson is a hottie.

      violence would not been the proper answer. It would have been an admission that the racist stereotype­s were true. We are all better than that.

      Then you would have been kicked out of the college, or even arrested had he decided to press charges. In situations like this, when dealing wit ignant azzes, it’s always best to be CIVIL.

  6. The professor was wrong to begin with because you don’t start something 15 minutes before class time — period. It’s not HIS time.

    And his comment was just plain inexcusabl­e.

      Al Sharpton does not hate all white people. You should listen to him more closely. He makes a great deal of sense on many subjects…Get ova your ideologies about him.

    3. Adam: I don’t agree with a lot of what Al Sharpton says and does because he has a tendency to shoot off at the mouth without many facts, but I believe he hates what white people DO, rather than hating all white people.

  7. That professor was totally in the wrong. And slaves were never allowed to be late most worked from “cant see to cant see”- from the time you cant see in the morning till you cant see at night. They would some times have them out there with torches picking cotton during harvest time.

        Tamala’s comment is unfair., that’s just like saying “all black people are racist” I mean really. It’s one thing to have an opinion but to generalize a whole race is just disrespectful, esp. when that race of people are amongst us.
