White ASU teachers claim racism

February 19, 2004

Albany --Two white professors at Albany State say they were treated unfairly because of their race. This week, the teachers filed complaints claiming they are victims of racial hostility. They claim at a staff meeting, a black professor said some white professors poorly advise students and insinuated it was an act of racism.

"All the things we have gone through to get where we are we should look back and do unto others as you have them do to you,"says ASU student Seqaous Walker.

ASU leaders say they take the claims seriously and are investigating. In the 80's, a white professor at ASU won a lawsuit because he was by-passed for a promotion based on his race.
