There is no reason as to why these professors want to say the nword so bad.

No. You don’t get to traumatize Black students and then walk away. Your “freedom of expression” will not be used as a white supremacist excuse to weaponize my dehumanization. Nope. Not today.

Thanks for adding your voice.

There is absolutely no need to say the n word, even in academic discussion. To insist otherwise is racist petulance. They should know better.

Thanks for adding your voice.

There is no need to use this offensive word to have important criticism discussion and analysis.

It’s not right as a student of UOttawa you should have to hear the N word all the time. It’s is derogatory and not okay for anyone to ever have to hear that. No matter if it was said years ago, it is not okay today.

Thanks for adding your voice.

Thank you for supporting the student body and taking the time to write this petition. So glad that we are hearing from professors on the other side about this important issue.

Thanks for adding your voice.

As a former uOttawa student, it is absolutely disgusting the amount of “incidents” this university has had. Frémont should resign.

Thanks for adding your voice.

We must act in solidarity in denouncing all acts of anti-Black racism. Racism in Canada's educational institutions has been protected by so-called: "academic freedom" from inception. It's time those who commit those acts are called out. And it's long overdue that the institutions that support this form of systemic racism are held accountable.
