Lib reporter defends black professor who called Carson a ‘coon’ – and calls YOU racist!

A political news website has come under fire on social media for defending a college professor who used a racial slur in comments about Dr. Ben Carson.

Campus Reform reported that University of Pennsylvania professor, Anthea Butler, tweeted “If only there was a ‘coon of the year‘ award,” in response to Carson declaring, at a NASCAR event, that people ought to be allowed to fly the Confederate battle flag on private property.

Mediaite’s Tommy Christopher declared the tweet was not racist.

“If you want to interpret Professor Butler’s tweet that way, you’re welcome to do so, but to state that interpretation as fact is just plain wrong. In fact, maybe you’re the racist for reading that tweet and assuming that she meant Ben Carson is a ‘coon,’” he wrote contending that the word is only racist if used by a white person.

“When a white person calls someone a “coon,” they are slurring all black people, but within the black community, the term is not a racial slur, and it’s not interchangeable with the multi-purpose n-word,” the white reporter wrote. “It is a provocative (and yes, offensive) social and/or political critique that covers a wide range of behaviors.”

Social media users blasted the reporter.
