Black Professor FIRED after Race-Filled BLM Rant on Tucker Carlson

(Updated June 27, 2017)  Essex County College professor Lisa Durden was indefinitely suspended two days after a fiery and belligerent appearance on Fox News’ Tucker Carlson Tonight, but the school’s president now reports she was fired after speaking at a public meeting on June 20 with school officials.

College President Anthony Munroe stated Monday that he was immediately inundated with complaints following her appearance on Fox News and described it as a “contentious and divisive issue” in a video statement.

“In consideration of the College’s mission, and the impact that this matter has had on the College’s fulfillment of its mission, we cannot maintain an employment relationship with the adjunct,” Munroe said in the statement.

Durden and her supporters, however, describe her predicament as “a rape survivor being blamed for the assault,” according to Friday. She maintains the firing was unjust and baseless with no due process and no facts.

On Tucker Carlson’s June 6 program, Durden launched a fierce defense of a black-only Black Lives Matter Memorial Day party restricting whites from attending based solely on their skin color. Carlson challenged her position, asking why it’s okay to exclude people based on their race.

“I thought the whole point of Black Lives Matter, or one of the points, would be to speak out against singling people out on the basis of their race and punishing them for that because you can’t control what your race is, and yet they seem to be doing that. Explain that to me,” Carlson said.

“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 Matters, all black, Memorial Day celebration,” Durden answered derisively, cutting off Carlson.

She then went off on a tirade, which she called “contextualizing,” on the creation of Memorial Day and declaring they held a black-only celebration “to honor black folks and make sure black folks are being celebrated for being murdered by racist terrorists.”

“I’m not gonna let you filibuster past my question,” Carlson warned. “I don’t want to shut this down… I don’t want to shut this down but I will.”

After a few seconds of killing her mike, he asked his question again.

“White folks crack me up,” Durden barked. “All of a sudden, when we want one day for black folks to focus on ourselves, but you’ve been having white days forever. You don’t say the words anymore because you know it’s politically incorrect.”

In the exchange, Carlson didn’t mince his words and at one point called her “hostile and separatist and crazy.”

“You’re demented actually,” Carlson told her. “You’re sick and what you’re saying is disgusting and if you were a Nazi I would say the same thing to you.”

Upon arriving to class for the summer session on June 8, Durden was instructed to cancel her classes and report to the human resources department where she received a letter from the vice president of academic affairs informing her she was suspended until further notice.

Although the letter did not mention her appearance on Fox News, it was brought up immediately afterward in a meeting with the HR department. Durden was told someone complained that she associated herself with the college on the show.

Durden nor her supporters saw anything wrong with her performance, deny she associated herself with the college, and point to previous programs she’s joined as a commentator without incident. Her attorney, Leslie Farber, thinks the school has “some other agenda.”

“It seems to me they’re going to make up some reason. We’ve got to figure out what that is and why. Is she too outspoken?” Farber commented.

Farber was “read” a three-sentence statement over the phone when contacting the school for information on her client’s dismissal: “The college promotes a community of unity that is inclusive of all. The general counsel has handled this matter in a way that complies with New Jersey state law. I am not at liberty to provide further details.”

“They did this to humiliate me,” Durden told The Star-Ledger. “Essex County College publicly lynched me in front of my students.”

Durden wants her job back and argues her right to free speech has been assaulted. Her colleagues agree and have started an online petition demanding she be reinstated.

“I find it shocking that an African-American woman would be so disrespected at her place of employment for merely exercising her First Amendment right to free speech,” Professor Jennifer Wager stated in Durden’s defense.

  1. Hello,
    This is very disturbing. Very hateful speech mixed with unlimited ignorance. Easily to say, you could learn and study racism from her. As some one from Saudi Arabia graduated from Emory Law I would like to say: you are taking advantage of BLM (I don’t support nor like the idea of BLM). This is a failure movement and its shaming the US.


  2. This BLM has gone to far! Imagine if a white person had reversed what she said, guarantee there would be riots and again acting like ANIMALS but they get away with it!!!! Enough is enough! All LIFES MATTER


    1. Lives*

      When white people aren’t in control of 80% of the government. When copa actually get convicted for murdering black people. When white supremacy is no longer a thing.. Then welly talk about your “concerns”


  3. I’m so sick of white racism. I see persons of color playing the race card all the time now. Its really a shame for the race to behave this way. BLM is a terrorist group. No one owes anyone anything for something their ancestors may have done. That’s like saying if her brother or great grandfather committed a crime then she should also be held accountable and punished and she should be shamed and humiliated. How stupid to think that is acceptable and many people are bowing down to these completely idiotic ideas. Also if stopped by police, DO WHAT THEY TELL YOU. Yes there are bad cops but there are many more good than bad. Turn down the thumping filthy music, wear clothing that covers your body and underwear, never say the “n” word even if you are black, that is so derogatory to the race. Everyone get married, then have kids when you can pay for them. I’m so sick of paying for bastard kids birth, formula, food and housing with my tax dollars. This continues for generation upon generation. One mistake and you and baby daddy get fixed if you want government assistance. Forced sterilization is the answer. If you can’t afford one then you sure don’t need more. Those of you, and I mean all races, who live off government assistance are stealing. If you only need it temporarily that’s fine, but to just be a welfare moocher, see you in hell thief. You have no pride and are just bums but I guess you were raised by ignorant bums. I’d rather my tax dollars go to homeless pets, at least they don’t know better but humans do.


    1. Slavery was prolific in Africa (all over the world actually) long before the first Jewish owned ships arrived at its shores. Not only that but it was their own race that captured them and sold them to said Jews. African Americans need to petition their fellow Africans in Africa for their reparations.


      1. Precisely. This fact is little known it seems. Africans enslaved their own and also sold their slaves. And those slaves were treated better in America than in Africa.


  4. Well it’s funny but every holiday is geared toward white folks and I’m sorry but there’s no need to say white life’s matter if your not being served injustices by government and being murder by police on a daily basis because of your skin color and oit side of the riots of Louisiana back when the flood happened when was the last time blacks rioted and got away with it? This country was stolen by racist bigots they have never had to pay for there crimes but a praised for there atrocities every year which are know as holidays. The funniest thing is when a woman of her status speaks on truth she looses her job while a white officer can shoot and kill a black men for nothing and are never convicted of a crime. Black lives do matter unless your a racist or a bigot then no life matters but you own kind all else can die.


    1. I am really confused! As a Latino American, the conflict between you black/white peoples is ignorant on both sides. Yes, Katrina was bad, you needed a gun whether you were black, white or like the majority of the world, in~between. I hope us in the majority, the middle develop a solution to the prevalent rascism among both whites and blacks. Pray for each other, if you want to grow.


      1. Blacks are killed by cops for noncompliance PERIOD. BLacks are always on the news for committing crimes,blacks are sucking our welfare system dry cause they can’t or keep their legs closed or keep (and I quote) “baby daddy” out of prison. REALLY ??? LOOK AT YOURSELVES D-I-S-G-U-S-T-I-N-G. Oh and by the way,pull up your F-ing pants. IDIOTS


  5. You speak of police officer’s killing blacks what do you tell the parents of black children that are murdered by other blacks in far far greater numbers. If the folks of blm take their cause seriously they would with that first. But instead remain silent due to not fitting their agenda. What is happening in Chicago is a national disgrace.


      1. You are right and any cop who does that should be prosecuted – but what about the statistical fact that last year cops in the U.S. shot twice as many white folk as black?
