NORMAN, Okla. (AP) — The University of Oklahoma Board of Regents has called racial slurs that two professors used in their classrooms “disgusting.”
The Oklahoman reports that Chairman Leslie Rainbolt-Forbes on Tuesday read a statement from the board addressing the recent incidents during the board’s first meeting since dozens of students staged a sit-in outside the university’s administrative offices.
The school’s black student leaders organized the sit-in after two professors sparked outrage by using the N-word during lectures last month. More than 100 protesters filled the school’s administration building until an agreement was reached with school administrators.
