Lisa Durden had a fiery debate with Tucker Carlson defending a gathering of Black Lives Matter devotees that banned white people, but then found that she was suspended from her teaching position at Essex County College in Newark, New Jersey. Durden blames the controversial appearance for her suspension despite she had been on other Fox News shows previous to that one.
In the combative segment TheBlaze reported previously, Durden mocked white people saying, “What I say to that is boo-hoo-hoo, you white people are angry because you couldn’t use your ‘white privilege’ card to get invited to the Black Lives Matter’s all-black Memorial Day celebration! Wow!”
When Durden tried to return to Essex County College to teach mass communication and popular culture and two speech courses, she was told to report to Human Resources after canceling her classes.
Durden received a letter from Jeffrey Lee, vice president for academic affairs, saying that she was suspended indefinitely. Although it didn’t specifically mention the appearance on the Tucker Carlson show as a reason for the dismissal, Durden says administration officials cited it when speaking to her.
According to Durden, Human Resources officials told her that someone complained that she had associated herself with the college while on the show. She says she never did that on the show, which TheBlaze posted here.
