UMDNJ moving closer to termnations in 'KKK Hazing Incident'

According to Blue Jersey, UMDNJ has moved to terminate the individuals involved with the recent "KKK Hazing Incident" at Newark's top health-care provider.

In my opinion, there is something very wrong in the 21st century when medical personnel at UMDNJ think it is somehow funny to indulge in KKK references as part of any exercise in humor. TRhe city of Newark hosts UMDNJ and is overwhelmingly diverse. I think UMDNJ is doing the right thing in trying to help itself past this controversy. But, once it is past it, I think it is safe to say that a new, tougher set of policies and guidelines are put in place to make sure something like this does not happen again in the future.
