Reed College professor to resign eight months after video of racist rant

Paul Currie, a tenured psychology professor at Reed College, will resign from his post eight months after a video captured him going on a racist rant against local restaurant employees.

Reed president Audrey Bilger announced in a letter to campus on Wednesday that Currie would resign effective Jan. 6.
