A professor expressed her racial bias on social media, announcing that “White Lives Don’t Matter” and admitting that she wants to assault her white male students. However, instead of denouncing her racist rhetoric, the university offered her a promotion.
Priyamvada Gopal is the exemplar of a progressive radical. As a professor in colonial and postcolonial literature at Cambridge University, she has an ample platform from which to proselytize anti-Western, anti-capitalism, and anti-white precepts.
First, it was colonialism. Then, it was white supremacy. Now, it is whiteness. This is the progression of the radical identitarian left, which started as a fringe movement but quickly gained popularity. Of course, it’s no secret that this extremist ideology has infested academia and, as yet another professor proves, it’s the only acceptable dogma on campus.
What passes for education in her classroom recently made its way onto social media when the professor brazenly displayed her racial bias. Unafraid of consequences that would otherwise apply if any other demographic were targeted, Gopal tested the waters of the university’s discrimination policy with a deliberately provocative tweet denigrating her white students, colleagues, and people in general.
“I’ll say it again. White Lives Don’t Matter,” she tweeted, “as white lives.”
She later added, “Yes, all lives matter. White lives as white do not.”
Unsurprisingly, this isn’t the first time the edgy professor has openly voiced racism. Gopal’s social media musings prove that no amount of posturing from the white progressives will suffice. In her view, white people are inherently racist and morally inferior, and neither their alliance nor their self-flagellation rectifies this.
“So you know, white people in white supremacist societies have a long way to go etc, white people have a lot to learn about race, racism, their habits of thought, their ingrained assumptions,” she wrote on Facebook.
Gopal has repeatedly expressed her racial bias toward whites, especially white males. Still, the university doesn’t believe that her racial prejudice interferes with her ability to treat her white students fairly. Even after confessing her desire to assault her white male students, the school has refused to condemn her words.
“I resist urges to kneecap white men every day,” Gopal tweeted. “So, no **I** am the hero.”
Expectedly, Gopal’s tweets garnered a backlash as social media users forwarded her words to Cambridge administrators. However, instead of denouncing the professor’s racist diatribe, the university defended Gopal and, according to her, offered her a promotion. She later doubled down on her statements but attempted to clarify that she was “very clearly speaking to a structure and ideology, not about people.”
“The University defends the right of its academics to express their own lawful opinions which others might find controversial and deplores in the strongest terms abuse and personal attacks. These attacks are totally unacceptable and must cease,” the university responded.
“When I talk about abolishing whiteness, I talk about political practices and ideologies. Systems of oppression, whether white or brown, should be abolished,” Gopal later clarified. “It’s about abolishing a race hierarchy where whites are at the top.”
Gopal claims that she has received threatening messages in response to her tweets. She says she has received emails that accuse her of being “disgusting inside and out” and telling her to “pack up your sh*t and go home” if she has such a disdain for white people. Another response allegedly urged Gopal, “kill yourself.”
A petition to call on Cambridge to fire Gopal reached over 8,000 signatures before being removed from the website, possibly due to Gopal’s urging her followers to report the petition for harassment.
Others have pointed out the university’s hypocrisy in its defense of Priyamvada Gopal while dismissing sociologist and intelligence researcher Noah Carl for his research on race and intelligence, and Jordan Peterson for his stance on political correctness.
Cambridge has made it clear that prejudice against whites is acceptable and even rewardable, yet politically incorrect language and ideas are banned. It’s no surprise that Gopal has been commended by the university for her anti-white views. The radical left infiltrated academia long ago, although it has only recently been publicly and proudly paraded by the academic elites.
