A University of Virginia lecturer “agreed to take a leave” Friday after comments comparing the Black Lives Matter movement to the Klu Klux Klan surfaced on Facebook.
Douglas Muir, an adjunct lecturer at the engineering school and the Darden School of Business, called the Black Lives Matter movement “racist” while commenting on someone else’s post, reports Daily Progress.
A Charlottesville real estate agent posted a picture of Alicia Garza, a co-founder of Black Lives Matter with the caption “Alicia Garza of Black Lives Matter now at the Paramount working for dignity for everyone. If you want peace work for justice.”
“Black lives matter is the biggest rasist organisation since the clan. Are you kidding me. Disgusting!!!” Muir responded in the post.
