DAILYKENN.com -- Penn Law professor Amy Wax will no longer teach required first-year courses after comments about black students came under fire, according to reports.
Wax is considered a "conservative" — honest, sane professors are an endangered species.

A conservative tenured law professor at the University of Pennsylvania has been removed from teaching required first-year law courses for comments she made about black students in her classes.
Law school dean Ted Ruger said professor Amy Wax spoke “disparagingly and inaccurately” about the performance of black students during a September 2017 interview with Brown University economics professor Glenn Loury on the “downside of affirmative action.”
“Here’s a very inconvenient fact, Glenn,” Wax told the host. “I don’t think I’ve ever seen a black student graduate in the top quarter of the class, and rarely, rarely in the top half. I can think of one or two students who’ve scored in the top half of my required first year course.”
