NL anti-racism advocates call for change after video including racial slur circulates online

Anti-racism advocates in Newfoundland and Labrador are calling for change after a video of a Memorial University professor saying the N-word as an example of derogatory language circulated online. CBC reports that the video shows assistant professor Sandrine Jean reading from a slide in which the N-word is spelled out. Social activist Laurabel Mba posted the video online after a student sent it to her. Memorial has apologized on Twitter and said it would start an investigation, and that its response would be informed by the Scarborough Charter on Anti-Black Racism and Black Inclusion.
