Lisa Durden was a professor at Essex County College, in New Jersey. She appeared on Fox News, to talk with Tucker Carlson about why whites were not allowed to be a part of the Black Lives Matter Memorial Day Celebration. She responded with some very controversial comments that then followed her back to her home school. There have been various reports of her publicly humiliating and grading down students who make mention of this interview. She was released about a month after the interview, although much controversy about her release ensued, and she is expected to be reinstated due to multiple petitions by students, and a possible lawsuit defending her fundamental right to free speech.
