According to Campus Reform, a University of Georgia (UGA) teaching assistant, Irami Osei-Frimpong, wrote a now-deleted comment on the Overheard at UGA Facebook page, stating that “some white people may have to die for black communities to be made whole in this struggle to advance to freedom.”
“Killing some white people isn’t genocide; it’s killing some white people.”
“We had to kill some white people to get out of slavery. Maybe if we’d killed more during the 20th century we still wouldn’t talk about racialized voter disenfranchisement and housing, education, and employment discrimination. This should not be controversial.”
Since the Facebook comment, Osei-Frimpong has continued to make racial slurs targeting white people, tweeting, “Fighting white people is a skill. You have to get used to fighting White people. It takes practice…. Blacks kill Blacks because they have never been trained to kill Whites.”
In a now-suspended Medium post, the teaching assistant stated…
“Killing some white people isn’t genocide; it’s killing some white people. We had to kill some white people to get out of slavery. Maybe if we’d killed more during the 20th century we still wouldn’t talk about racialized voter disenfranchisement and housing, education, and employment discrimination. This should not be controversial.”
Despite his racially inflammatory comments, UGA Associate Professor of Brain and Behavioral Science, Dr. Janet Frick, defended Osei-Frimpong on Twitter, stating, “Okay, I may be a crappy white people, [sic] but even I know that’s not hate speech. That’s ‘hurt your feelings speech,’ but not hate speech. Keep on keeping on, my friend.”
Andrew Lawrence, a former reporter for Campus Reporter, tweeted a message to the University of Georgia, encouraging alumni and donors to reconsider donating to the university so long as campus administrators refuse to take action.
The university responded on Twitter, stating, “The university has been vigorously exploring all legal options. Racism has no place on our campus, and we condemn the advocacy or suggestion of violence in any form. We are seeking guidance from the office of the Attorney General as to what actions we can legally consider in accordance with the First Amendment.”
