Minority Rights Group Calls For UT Law Professor's Resignation
There are calls for a University if Texas law professor to resign because of a controversial radio comment about minority students.
Professor Lino Graglia was talking to BBC radio about black and Hispanic students' low test scores when he said, "(I) hardly imagine a less beneficial experience than to be raised by a single parent, usually female, uneducated and without a lot of money."
In response, the League of United Latin American Citizens (LULAC) is demanding he resign.
This isn't the first time Graglia's been accused of racism.
In 1997, he told a conservative student group on campus that black and Mexican-American cultures set up children for failure.
