A singing instructor at Saint Mary’s may lose his job following an incident, in which the professor had his class sing “Old Man River,” a song that includes derogatory names for African-Americans.

The incident was reported to the college by an African-American student in the class who found the song offensive.

The instructor, Louis Lehberz, has apologized to the class, written a letter to the student who reported the incident and attended mandatory diversity training.

The reporting student believes that Lehberz should be removed from the college completely.¬†Officials at Saint Mary’s have stated that Lehberz’s future is under discussion.
