Rutgers Investigating Prof Who Condemned ‘Little Caucasian A**holes’
A New Jersey university is investigating a professor who condemned “little Caucasian a**holes,” according to a Tuesday announcement.
Rutgers University is looking into remarks made by history professor James Livingston, who said he “now hate[s] white people” in a since-deleted Facebook post Thursday, according to NJ.com. The school condemned “racial intolerance.”
“OK, officially, I now hate white people,” Livingston said. “I am a white people [sic], for God’s sake, but can we keep them — us — us out of my neighborhood? I just went to Harlem Shake on 124 and Lenox for a Classic burger to go, that would [be] my dinner, and the place is overrun with little Caucasian a**holes who know their parents will approve of anything they do.”
He referred to the children at the restaurant as “s**thead” and “moron,” saying that they could do what they want and that no one would infringe on their “right to be white.” (RELATED: Rutgers Prof: ‘Officially, I Now Hate White People’)
“I hereby resign from my race,” announced the professor. Livingston, who authored “No More Work: Why Full Employment Is A Bad Idea” and “Origins of the Federal Reserve System: Money, Class, and Corporate Capitalism, 1890-1913,” said Friday morning that Facebook had informed him that his post violated the site’s hate speech policy. He or the social media giant deleted the post.
“I just don’t want little Caucasians overrunning my life, as they did last night,” the professor explained in a subsequent Facebook post. “Please God, remand them to the suburbs, where they and their parents can colonize every restaurant, all the while pretending that the idiotic indulgence of their privilege signifies cosmopolitan — you know, as in sophisticated ‘European’ — commitments.
“There is no place for racial intolerance at Rutgers,” the school said to NJ.com.
