Roger Williams Board Member's Racial Slur Triggers Student Response

The Tax Prof Blog reports today that law students at
Roger Williams are demanding the removal of
Ralph R. Papitto's name from the law school
following his resignation from the university's board of
trustees for his use of a racial slur during a board
discussion of diversity.

The blog post links to numerous news stories and a
letter from Papitto in which he responds to complaints.
