When a black professor tweeted that he wants white people to die and supports “fighting white people,” concerned individuals notified his university. However, instead of firing or even punishing him, the campus administration insists that he did nothing wrong.
For Irami Osei-Frimpong, every discrepancy within minority communities can be reduced to racial inequality, namely the oppression of white people. Additionally, he has been afforded a gratifying platform to spew this racial propaganda and spread the idea of victim superiority at the University of Georgia, convincing young people that a certain race of people is inherently racist and, therefore, evil.
The UGA teaching assistant, who has compared himself to historical black activists fighting for civil rights and his perceived oppression to that of those living under Jim Crowe legislation, has relentlessly preached that whites are the enemies of non-whites and thusly the cause of the majority of their communities’ problems. However, he has since escalated the demagoguery from his pulpit, advocating that “some white people may have to die for black communities to be made whole in this struggle to advance to freedom.”
“Fighting White people is a skill,” Osei-Frimpong tweeted. “Really, it’s one reason I’m in support of integrated schools. You have to get used to fighting White people.”
Irami Osei-Frimpong, who utilizes social media to regurgitate exhausted racist supremacist talking points, ignorantly chalked up the black population’s disproportionate crime rate to patriarchal oppression and systematic racism.
Osei-Frimpong proceeded to quote clinical psychologist Bobby Wright, who said “Blacks kill Blacks because they have never been trained to kill Whites.”
While most people would see this as racial supremacism and incitement of racial violence, the University of Georgia disagrees. In fact, the UGA administration not only refused to even chastize Osei-Frimpong for such rhetoric but unbelievably defended the very nature of his bigoted and inflammatory speech.
Instead of reprimanding Osei-Frimpong or even denouncing his racist rhetoric and distancing the university’s name from the promotion of white genocide, UGA administrators defended his call for the death of white people. According to Campus Reform, United Campus Workers of Georgia penned a letter endorsed by 9 UGA faculty members, which included professors, teaching assistants, and administrators. They then presented the letter directly to UGA President Jere Morehead.
“We write to address the University’s response, which has come perilously close to caving to an outside organization’s attempt to squelch academic freedom at UGA,” the union said, referencing Campus Reform, which broke the story, as the “outside organization. It noted that unless UGA workers “can rely on our administration to support us, academic freedom does not exist.”
Campus Reform first reported on Osei Frimpong’s disturbing rants after he compared southern whites to “autistic kids” and “sociopaths.” His rhetoric became so outrageous and extreme that he was even banned from Facebook for a post demanding that “we have to dismantle the institutions that make crappy white people.”
Although UGA maintains that “views expressed by students, faculty, and staff in their personal capacities do not reflect the views of the university,” the administrators involved have made it their mission to stand by this particular teacher’s comments.
Unfortunately for the university administration, they quickly learned that the vast majority of their donors and benefactors are members of the same demographic that Osei-Frimpong is attacking. After hearing the professor’s comments, individuals began threatening to cut off donations to the school. This immediately caught the attention of the UGA staff.
After donors began backing away, UGA announced that it was checking with the Office of the Attorney General regarding “what actions we can legally consider in accordance with the First Amendment.”
Of course, this was all a ruse to keep their benefactors. The union admitted that it will continue to support the teacher because of apparent racism that took place on the school’s campus some years ago.
In its letter, the union declared that UGA has a “moral” and “legal” obligation to defend Osei-Frimpong because of the university’s “history steeped in slavery and segregation and its recent attempts to bury that past, its role in the destruction of established black communities through urban renewal, and its perpetuation of generational poverty by paying a large portion of its staff—especially its African American staff—extremely low wages.”
“Protecting Mr. Osei-Frimpong’s right to speak freely and to challenge the long history of white supremacy in this country, this community, and especially this University, should not be controversial. That is the University’s job,” the letter added.
Osei-Frimpong will continue to spew his racist and violent rhetoric, calling for the mass slaughter of white people by minorities. He will go on indoctrinating America’s youths, convincing them that, although they live in the most privileged and freest society in history, they are victims.
The university’s response proves that we are living in an era in which certain groups may disparage and discriminate against other groups solely based on skin color. Until we voice our opposition to this unveiled racism, we will see it continue to fester on campuses.
