US varsity removes professor over ‘racist email’

Jan 28, 2019 13:08 IST

After a professor reportedly sent an email asking students not to speak Chinese, a US university has removed her as director of a graduate programme. Megan Neely, an assistant professor at Duke University in North Carolina, said in an email that she received complaints from two of her colleagues about students speaking Chinese on the campus and could fetch unintended consequences for the speakers. Many have criticised the professor's email as racist or insensitive.
