Princeton Professor Cancels 'Cultural Freedoms' Course After Backlash over His Use of N-Word

Princeton professor Lawrence Rosen announced on Monday that he’d be shutting down his course on cultural freedoms for the rest of the semester after he faced a media backlash for using the n-word during a classroom lecture on hate speech.

Princeton professor Lawrence Rosen provoked the ire of his students and the national media last week after he repeatedly used the n-word during a class on hate speech and blasphemy.

According to the Daily Princetonian, during a class session on offensive words, Rosen posed a hypothetical about the offensiveness of n-word.

In the days following the class, the incident was covered in media outlets such as the New York Daily News, Fox News, NJ.com, the Huffington Post, and the International Business Times.

l have reluctantly decided to cancel this year’s offering of Anthropology 212, Cultural Freedoms.
