Georgia professor’s immigration comments cause stir on social media
LINK

A Georgia Gwinnett College professor’s online comments about illegal immigrants have prompted some, including a state lawmaker, to say he should be reprimanded or fired.

The professor, a Chinese legal immigrant, says of the criticism: Bring it on.Fang Zhou, an associate history professor at the college, is being criticized by some for using phrases such as “ghetto thugs” and “libtards” in social media conversations about illegal immigration and for saying he has a “Deportation of illegal immigrants” sign in his office.He remarked: “I am against political correctness. I speak truth to power in class and my students learn about the financial drain of illegal immigration on the economy and the high crime rates of illegal immigrants. My students are ‘woke’ and are overwhelmingly against illegal immigration after taking my class.”

Zhou, who describes himself as an “active anti-illegal immigration activist” said he welcomed the criticism.“Everybody has free speech, so (Nguyen’s) welcome to complain,” Zhou told the AJC.Zhou, who began teaching at the college in 2010, said he does not force students to share his viewpoints and discusses other topics in his classroom.

Zhou said he has plenty of students who disagree with his viewpoints, some have sent him hate mail. Critics, he said, must come with information to defend their position.“To make a convincing argument, please present evidence,” Zhou said.?Zhou’s comments are the latest made by faculty members and students at Georgia’s public colleges and universities to come under fire.

Earlier this year, critics called for the ouster of an African American teaching assistant at the University of Georgia who made comments some believe supported violence against whites. A student panel in May cleared the assistant, Irami Osei-Frimpong, of charges he falsified his graduate school application.

Keep the black guy who hates whites and wants them murdered. Fire the legal Asian citizen because he hates illegal immigrants.


If they do that then ... Wow

Setting aside agreement or disagreement with the substantive content of his views, why is a history teacher using classroom time to lecture about immigration policy? Should he not be lecturing about the Battle of Hastings?

Understanding immigration policies is integral to grasping the recorded history of every civilization on this planet.

Any other questions?

He repeatedly said on Tucker last night that he had tenure and couldn't be fired. We shall see how strong the resolve is in his university/college.

The student panel did not clear him of the charges he falsified his grad school application. The student panel ruled that they didn't care, and to take no action. The grad school application was absolutely falsified, bigly.

He is listed as an associate professor. What college grants tenure to a mere associate professor?

I always understood that tenure was one of the characteristics which distinguish a full professor from an associate professor
