Georgetown University’s law school says it has fired a White professor and placed another on administrative leave Thursday after a video surfaced showing them engaging "in a conversation that included reprehensible statements concerning the evaluation of Black students."

The footage at the center of the controversy -- which has gone viral on Twitter with more than 500,000 views -- shows Professor Sandra Sellers speaking to Professor David Batson over Zoom about students’ academic performance.

"You know what? I hate to say this, I end up having this angst every semester that a lot of my lower ones are Blacks," Sellers says. "Happens almost every semester and it's like ‘oh come on.'"

Sellers then briefly laughs before saying: "I get some really good ones but there are also usually some that are just plain at the bottom, it drives me crazy... so I feel bad."
