It's nice not to live in fear. That's part of the goal. Not being afraid of what's happening to you.

Last week, Douglas Muir, who works at the UVA School of Engineering and Applied Science and the Darden Graduate School of Business, posted a comment on a Facebook post comparing the Black Lives Matter movement to the Ku Klux Klan.

On Tuesday, he released a statement apologizing for his post.

"This careless post was called out by many for ridicule. I accept those criticisms and promise to take these hard lessons learned to heart as I go forward," wrote Muir. "Whatever my initial intention was from the post has been overshadowed by those who are rightly offended by it and others who want to use my words to further divide this community. It was never my intent for my words to cause so much turmoil."

While the comment was removed, it still generated a lot of backlash in the university community and Charlottesville.

According to a statement from the School of Engineering, Muir has agreed to take a leave in the wake of the comment.
