Resignation permits a bit of honor, which here is clearly not deserved.
Past and current writing, movies, plays and art all contain hatefilled images and words. In context they may be appropriate and relevantm essentuak to the timeframe and story. Taken out of context and applied in another setting to a current event is wrong. There should be formal professional consequences.
