It’s been a pretty intense year when it comes to race in America— and white people have turned out to be the main culprit.
A Drexel University professor, who happens to be white, has a long history of supporting racist views towards white people on Twitter and has at times supported genocide, according to some reports. Professor George Cicariello-Maher made headlines this week after a tweet made it’s rounds on the internet.
He tweeted, and deleted, “All I Want for Christmas is White Genocide.” After deleting the tweet, Cicariello-Maher brushed it off as a joke, saying that “White isn’t a race.” The associate professor of political science, who joined Drexel University in 2010, describes himself as a communist. The University released a statement about the tweet, saying, “While the University recognizes the right of its faculty to freely express their thoughts and opinions in public debate, Professor Ciccariello-Maher’s comments are utterly reprehensible, deeply disturbing, and do not in any way reflect the values of the University. The University is taking this situation very seriously. We contacted Ciccariello-Maher today to arrange a meeting to discuss this matter in detail.”
This isn’t Cicariello’s first time coming under fire for his anti-white rhetoric. On June 8, 2015, he tweeted, “Abolish the White Race.” The opinionated professors tweets are now protected.
