“But if a white Professor at Carnegie had made similar comments about eg. Nelson Mandela or Martin Luther King – he/she would be sacked. You know that.”

“I’m afraid her position is untenable. She has offended people all over the globe. You have to ask her what she was hoping to achieve? It seems that she has done similar before and you have allowed her to do this.”
