A white, male University of New Hampshire chemistry professor has resigned after being accused of posing as a female immigrant of color on Twitter to make racist and sexist comments. The university, which has not named the professor and described the person only as a faculty member, confirmed the resignation Friday after a four-month investigation. University President James Dean Jr. sent a letter to the community Wednesday announcing the person had resigned, a spokesperson said.
