Professor Fired For Mixing Up Two Black Students Names In Class

Honest mistakes are no longer allowed in our political correct society.

A Fordham University professor has just been terminated after he mixed up the names of two black students in his class.

According to a report the professor mixed up the name of one student who reportedly got offended that his professor called him by a name of another black student.

In response to the incident  professor Christopher Trogan then sent out a 9 page letter stating how he didn’t mean for the incident to be seen as insensitive and encouraged the students to report him.

After Trogan sent out the 9 page letter, Trogan was fired and relieved from his duties as a lecturer at Fordham University.

 

The New York Post had more on the story:

A Fordham University professor was fired after mixing up the names of two black students in class, according to a report.

Hours after what he called an “innocent mistake,” lecturer Christopher Trogan, 46, sent a rambling, nine-page email to students in his Composition II classes explaining the faux pas — and defending, without being asked, his “entire life” of working on “issues of justice, equality, and inclusion,” the campus newspaper reported.

“The offended student assumed my mistake was because I confused that student with another Black student,” Trogan wrote, according to a Nov. 29 article in the Fordham Observer. “I have done my best to validate and reassure the offended student that I made a simple, human, error. It has nothing to do with race.”

He blamed the mistake on his “confused brain” when the two students arrived to class late on Sept. 24, while he was reading a classmate’s work.

Several students said Trogan’s bizarre overreaction, rather than making a simple apology, made matters worse for him.

The Post Millennial covered the bizarre story too:

Hours after what Trogan called an “innocent mistake,” the Fordham University lecturer sent a nine-page email to students in his Composition II classes explaining the incident and defending his “entire life” of working on “issues of justice, equality, and inclusion,” campus newspaper Fordham Observer reported.

“The offended student assumed my mistake was because I confused that student with another Black student,” Trogan wrote in the email to the Fordham students. “I have done my best to validate and reassure the offended student that I made a simple, human, error. It has nothing to do with race.”

Trogan blamed the controversial name mix-up on his “confused brain” when the two black students arrived to class late on Sept. 24,while the professor was concentrating on another classmate’s work at the lecturer podium.
