Rutgers University associate professor Brittney Cooper shockingly claimed during an interview with The Root in September on Critical Race Theory and white Americans that she really wanted to say, “We got to take these motherf***ers out.”

Cooper is an associate professor in the Rutgers University Department of Women’s, Gender and Sexuality Studies. The event where she made the outlandish comment was entitled, “Unpacking the Attacks on Critical Race Theory.”
“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,” Cooper stated.
She was replying to Michael Harriot who is a senior writer for The Root. He had asked her what could be expected from white people by black Americans.
Cooper also went on at length proclaiming that she believes “white folks” are not “eternal,” contending that they were somehow just a blip in time, an aberration in history.
“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?” Cooper asserted. “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.”
“Whiteness is going to have an end date because despite what white people think of themselves, they do not defy the laws of eternity,” the professor said.
“But whiteness is largely an, you know, an inconvenient interruption,” Cooper posited.
Earlier in the interview, she also stated, “Kids actually can grasp Critical Race Theory because the issue that the right has, is that Critical Race Theory is just the proper teaching of American history.”
Cooper claimed that the accurate portrayal of history was that white people “didn’t discover America” because there were already indigenous people here. She said that white people committed acts of violence in order to make themselves seem superior. She went on to refer to white Americans as villains in her diatribe.
The professor is on a “sabbatical leave” from teaching for the term during 2021-2022.
Stephen Wallace, who is a student at Rutgers University, told Fox News in an interview that he believes Cooper’s comments are an incitement of violence against a group of people.
“The people that want to teach kids about America and how racist and oppressed everyone is are the real racists and oppressors,” he remarked.
This isn’t the first time that Cooper has made the news. In April of 2020, she blamed former President Trump and his supporters for the circumstances surrounding the pandemic.
“F*** each and every Trump supporter. You absolutely did this. You are to blame,” she tweeted at the time, according to Fox News.
Then she asserted that the university would not fire her because she had tenure.
“I said what I meant. And I curse cuz I’m grown,” Cooper tweeted. “I have tenure. Rutgers won’t be firing me for tweets.”
She has even blamed Trump for black women being obese.
Many find Cooper’s comments racist and highly offensive but not surprising:

Of course Rutgers supports it. Academia has been reduced to an intellectual wasteland. I am sure that this prof says far worse inside of the classroom.

She’s a racist. She makes vast, sweeping negative generalizations about an entire group of people solely based upon their skin color. She’s no different than white supremacists who have argued Blacks or Latinos are criminal by their natures.

Agreed, by creating a protected class, you inherently create an unprotected class. All men and women are equal. We all deserve protection.

So black and brown people never colonised and conquered? It’s like she never heard about the Rashidun Caliphate, The Abbasid Caliphate, The Umayyad Caliphate, The Mongol Empire,The Chinese empire, The Ottoman Empire…. Way to erase black and brown history!

Paying bigots to teach racist hate in the name of fighting racism? How is this a good or beneficial education to anyone. Why is it even described as education when it’s not even factual or honest? It’s as illogical n vile as most racist BS
