A professor from Rutgers University was discussing white people during an event and said “We got to take these motherf***ers out”.
Brittney Cooper is an associate professor in the Rutgers University Department of Women’s, Gender and Sexuality Studies. She was participating in an event hosted by The Root called “‘Unpacking the Attacks on Critical Race Theory”.
During the event, Cooper said “Like, the thing I want to say to you is we got to take these motherf***ers out. But, like, we can’t say that, right? We can’t say, like, I don’t believe in a project of violence. I truly don’t”.
Michael Harriot, a senior writer for The Root, had asked Cooper what can be expected out of white people from black Americans.
Cooper said “”But I do fundamentally believe that things that have a beginning have an ending. All things that begin end. White folks are not infinite and eternal, right?”. “They ain’t going to go on for infinity and infinity. And that’s super important to remember that white colonialism and imperialism has a beginning. And in my way of thinking about the world, that means it has an end,” she added.
She explained that “Whiteness is going to have an end date, because despite what White people think of themselves, they do not defy the laws of eternity”. “But Whiteness is largely an, you know, an inconvenient interruption”.
Cooper, who is on “sabbatical leave” for 2021-2022, became popular in 2020 after blaming the impacts of COVID on Donald Trump and his supporters. She tweeted “F*** each and every Trump supporter. You absolutely did this. You are to blame”.
Stephen Wallace, a student at Rutgers, told Fox News he sees Cooper’s comments as an incitement of violence and said “The people that want to teach kids about America and how racist and oppressed everyone is are the real racists and oppressors”.
