Black college professor suspended after saying some Black Lives Matter members ‘should be hung’

An African-American college professor has been suspended after video emerged of him saying some Black Lives Matter members “should be hung.”

Grand Canyon University professor Toby Jennings made the comments last September at a ministry forum called “God’s concern for the poor: What’s missing in social justice,” Fox 10 reported.

The school shared a link to the video yesterday which angered some in the Black Lives Matter movement.

The offensive remarks:

“You have folks that participate in it on one side that are very thoughtful about the matter and then on the other side, you have people on the opposite side of that who frankly should be hung … and I did say that on video. They are saying things that are not helpful in any shape or form or human dignity or flourishing,” he said.

In response to the outrage GSU has suspended Jennings for the upcoming Fall semester.

The professor and the school have also apologized.

“It was terribly wrong, but it is an isolated incident and it does not represent who our faculty is and it does not represent who are students are,” Grand Canyon University President Brian Mueller said.

But the punishment was not enough for some in the activist group.

“My heart is broken, not because GCU is our enemy, but they claim to be our brothers and sisters,” Pastor Warren Stewart, Jr. said. “Brothers and sisters please stop avoiding talking about ways racism … makes us uncomfortable.”

Are they being too sensitive to a figure of speech or does he deserve to be punished? Join the debate.
