Fire Carlin Romano from UPenn

Dear Faculty & Deans of the Annenberg School for Communication,
I write to express my outrage and disappointment over the recent behavior of Carlin Romano, specifically in relation to racist remarks he made and a sustained campaign of targeting black people and women on the board of the National Book Critics Circle.

Romano is currently scheduled to teach COMM 378, Journalism & Public Service this fall at Penn. His views on race and responsibility are severely damaging to the young people he might encounter, particularly black students and other students of color. 

The Annenberg Center for Communication put out a statement in June 2020 that "Black Lives Matter" and that you are horrified by institutional racism and police violence. We are asking you to act on this statement and prohibit Carlin Romano from teaching at Penn this fall or ever again.

Sincerely,
