The University of Pennsylvania and Princeton University face serious questions about how researchers handled human remains of the 1985 police bombing from a black separatist group in West Philadelphia. This scrutiny follows revelations that the universities housed the unidentified childhood remains of the bombing for years, and that the remains were used for teaching in Penn.

The anthropologist in the center of the case says that he is worried about the accusations that he acted little ethically, and some in the field have spoken to defend him. But critics see the case as an undeniable example of academic racism, he made it even more bitter for the police actions that underlie him.
