Law-school professors punished for student-standing remarks

It seems that anytime a law-school professor says that Black students in their classes underperform their classmates they are either fired or penalized (“Georgetown Law professor trashes Black students on Zoom call, gets fired,” New York Daily News, Mar. 11).

The latest example took place at Georgetown, but the same thing happened at the University of Pennsylvania in Mar. 2018. Their crime was stating what they had seen in their law-school classes. 

I don’t think the punishment they received fit the crime. I don’t believe the professors at Georgetown and Penn are racists.  When analysts state that Black students underperform their counterparts on the SAT, they are not attacked.  Why are law-professors treated differently?
