Towson University fired an adjunct last week after he called himself, in class, a "nigger on a corporate plantation," The Baltimore Sun reported. Allen Zaruba, the adjunct, made the comment in a discussion of controversial works of art. Zaruba, who is white, told the Sun he realized that he shouldn't have made the remark and that he apologized for the comment, and didn't think it unsettled his class. But at least one student and parent complained and Zaruba was fired.
