Sandra Sellers, 62, was speaking to Prof. David Batson about how “a lot of my lower ones are blacks,” referring to the students in her class with the worst academic performance.
“They were a bit jumbled,” Sellers said of one of her student’s performance, who according to the Black Law Students Association was the only black student in Sellers’ mediation and negotiation class.
“It’s like, let me reason through that, what you just said,” Sellers added in frustration. “You know what? I hate to say this, I end up having this angst every semester, that a lot of my lower ones are blacks.”
The comments were made at the end of a Zoom call between Sellers and Batson that the two thought was not still being recorded. The full clip ended up being uploaded along with the rest of the Zoom class footage to a class website that students had access to for a full two weeks before anyone even noticed the excess footage.
The offending clip was ultimately reported to the school’s administration, which immediately took action by firing Sellers and calling her statements “abhorrent.”
“As I wrote to you last night, I am appalled that two members of our faculty engaged in a conversation that included reprehensible statements concerning the evaluation of Black students,” reads a statement issued by Dean Bill Treanor to the student body.
“I have further reviewed the incident and have now spoken to Professor Sellers and Professor Batson, giving each the opportunity to provide any additional context. I informed Professor Sellers that I was terminating her relationship with Georgetown Law effective immediately.”
Sellers apparently told Treanor during their conversation that she had intended to resign. Nevertheless, Treanor fired her anyway and put Batson on “administrative leave pending the investigation by the Office of Diversity, Equity, and Affirmative Action, the results of which will inform our next steps.”
“Until the completion of the investigation, Professor Batson will have no further involvement with the course in which the incident arose.”
The Black Law Student Association was quick to spin the incident as “evidence” that Sellers must have been grading her black students unfairly low because of their dark skin pigmentation.
The group issued a statement that, instead of calling for black law school students to work harder and perform better, accused Sellers of grading her black students lower because of her “racist thoughts.”
“Professor Sellers’ bias has impacted the grades of black students in her classes historically,” the group insists.
Treanor jumped on the virtue signaling train as well, explaining to the Georgetown Law student body in a statement that firing sellers and putting Batson on administrative leave is “by no means the end of our work to address the many structural issues of racism reflected in this painful incident, including explicit and implicit bias, bystander responsibility, and the need for more comprehensive anti-bias training.”
“This is a matter of great concern to me,” Treanor added. “I will be writing to you soon with a range of actions and changes that we will implement to address these issues.”
Meanwhile, large corporations like Coca-Cola are flat-out telling their employees that all white people are evil just because they have light skin and nobody but conservatives and the independent media bats an eye.
