Furor Over Professor Who Called Barbara Bush Racist

20 April 2018

While Jarrar bragged that she can't be fired from her tenured position as an English professor at Fresno State, the university's president said that's false.

Former US first lady Barbara Bush died Tuesday at the age of 92, triggering an outpouring of praise for the matriarch of a Republican family once at the apex of American politics. "F**k outta here with your nice words", Jarra tweeted.

'If you'd like to know what it's like to be an Arab American Muslim American woman with some clout online expressing an opinion, look at the racists going insane in my mentions right now.

To top off her potentially career-ending rant, the professor posted what she said was her phone number - certainly an odd thing to do given the amount of blowback she began receiving.

Commercial crude oil inventories in the U.S. fell by 1. 1 million barrels for the week ending April 13, data from the U.S. West Texas Intermediate crude futures hit a fresh high going back to December 2, 2014.

"Understandably, many people are very concerned and upset about the nature of Professor Jarrar's personal comments".

Bush passed away on Tuesday.

So far the university has not spoken directly with Jarrar, Zelezny said.

After critics called out Jarrar's tweet and pushed for her removal, the Fresno professor responded by claiming she would "never be fired".

If the Senate panel rejects Pompeo's nomination - and it's looking increasingly likely that it will - it would be a first. On Tuesday, Manchin said that he had met with Pompeo and that their meeting went well.

When one warned Jarrar - who grew up in Egypt and Kuwait - she could lose writing gigs for her despicable diatribe, she doubled down.

On Wednesday morning, Lynnette Zelezny, Fresno State's provost vice president of academic affairs, held a press conference, calling Jarrar's statements "deeply disrespectful". Zelezny said it is too early to tell if the investigation will affect those courses. She had requested a personal leave of absence at the beginning of the year, but is scheduled to teach again in the fall.

In honor of Bush´s life, President Donald Trump ordered that the United States flag be flown at half-staff until sundown on the day she is buried, at all public buildings and grounds, as well as military posts and vessels. "I don't think it should make the school look bad but I still think it's wrong that the professor used social media to say that because they should be professional", Fresno State student Amy Lawhead said in response. Many tagged Fresno State and the institution's president, Joseph Castro, demanding that the professor be fired.
