Once you've said it online, you've pretty much said it everywhere.
A Duke University professor was reportedly placed on leave after he had posted racially charged comments to a New York Times article online.
Jerry Hough voiced his opinion on the New York Times article titled "How Racism Doomed Baltimore," saying that Asian-American's do not riot because they are angry but because they are overworked.
However, Asian-Americans were not the only group he focused on.
Hough also made a comment about the riots in Baltimore and also stated that "...every black has a strange new name that symbolizes their lack of desire for integration." He then compared this to Asian-Americans saying, "every Asian student [who] has a very simple old American first name."
Hough told an ABC affiliate that he stands by his comments and that Martin Luther King Jr. was his hero.
