The black sociology professor who once proclaimed, “let (white people) Fucking die,” is at it again.
Johnny Williams, who, for reasons not clear to anyone continues to teach at Trinity College in Connecticut, recently wrote that white people preside over an “oppressive system” tantamount to terrorism.
Williams’ racist screed, published last month in the Hartford Current, was headlined, “I tweeted ‘whiteness is terrorism’ and was condemned for it. Here’s why I’m right.”
Here’s why Williams is left — so radically far left that his racist hatred makes sense to him, and apparently to the college that employs him.
After U.S. House Majority Whip Steve Scalise and three others were shot in 2017 by a deranged leftist, Williams seemed to revel in the violent attack on Republicans.
“It is past time for the racially oppressed to do what people who believe themselves to be ‘white’ will not do, put (an) end to the vectors of their destructive mythology of whiteness and their white supremacy system. #LetThemFucking Die,” the professor wrote on his Facebook page.
“The time is now to confront these inhuman a-holes and end this now,” Williams wrote in another post.
At the time, he said the hashtag was rhetorical, not a literal call for anyone’s death, according to Insidehighered.com.
Following an investigation, the liberal arts school cleared Williams of any wrongdoing.
More recently, Williams wrote on Facebook, “White kneegrows really need a lot of therapy and a good ol’ ass kicking.” Just more rhetorical expression, apparently. Williams later said that he was talking about black conservative commentator Candace Owens, but also “other and less brazen but more insidious dangerous ‘white’ knee grows like Barry and Michelle Obama.”
Trinity President Joanne Berger-Sweeney is defending Williams, asserting the college “supports academic freedom and free expression and inquiry, which are hallmarks of academia and democratic society.”
Would the administrator and her college be so supportive if a white professor had made similar “rhetorical” statements about black people?
