Police Investigating Death Threats Made Toward Florida Professor Teaching ‘White Racism' Course

The professor at the head of Florida Gulf Coast University's controversial "White Racism" class is back in spotlight.

Ted Thornhill told NBC affiliate WBBH-TV that he's getting death threats aimed at him and his family and has asked campus police to look into it.

Thornhill says he's turned over all emails and phone calls over to officers, but so far there have been no arrests.

The professor says the threats are now part of his class, using them as a teaching tool.
