A law professor was fired from Georgetown University after she said Black students always performed at the bottom of her class every semester.
Professor Sandra Sellers made the statement during a Zoom meeting with a colleague on Feb. 21.
The colleague, Professor David Batson, was placed on administrative leave on Thursday for not correcting Sellers.
Dean Bill Treanor announced on Thursday that Sellers, 62, was let go after viewing the video that showed Sellers complaining about a Black law student.
"You know what? I hate to say this," she told Batson. "I end up having this angst every semester, that a lot of my lower ones are blacks."
She continued: "It happens almost every semester, and it's like, oh, come on. You know, we get some really good ones but there also usually some of them that are just plain at the bottom," Sellers said.
The Black Law Students Association said the student was the only Black person in the class this semester.
The prestigious law school was attended by former first daughter Tiffany Trump.
