FORT WORTH, Texas -- A Texas Christian University professor is raising questions about race after singling out some of his students.

Professor Santiago Piñón sent an e-mail to them offering a study session for "students of color only."

Junior Allison Guzman received the message and wondered what the professor's intentions were.

“What if I was white and didn't get this e-mail, like, shouldn't there be a study session for me as well," Guzman said.

TCU officials said the professor often reaches out to minority students to help them feel connected, but that he and all professors should offer equal assistance to all students.
