Rutgers University silent over racist tenured prof who proclaimed: ‘We got to take these motherf***ers out’

Rutgers University has been glaringly silent over a tenured professor making threatening, explosive, and racist comments against white people over a number of years, most recently in an interview with The Root where she called them “villains.”

Dr. Brittney Cooper, 41, told The Root’s Michael Harriot during an online segment for the publication in September that “white folks” are not “eternal,” asserting that they are an aberration in history. She even celebrated a statistic that shows a decline in white birth rates.

“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 also stated.

This is far from the first time that Cooper has gone off the deep end against white Americans.

Last year on MSNBC, Cooper accused conservatives of attempting to kill black people by reopening society during the pandemic.

She also wrote on her blog in 2012 that Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer was “white rage personified” after a photo surfaced of her pointing a finger at Barack Obama when they met at a Phoenix airport.

Cooper fearlessly tweeted a number of offensive statements during a Twitter rage in 2020, claiming that white conservatives don’t care about the lives of black people, according to the Daily Mail.

Many people have called for Rutgers University to fire the associate professor over her racist and hateful behavior. But so far, there has been nothing but crickets from the learning institution concerning her actions. Likewise, members of the faculty have remained silent over the matter.

Cooper is a tenured associate professor in women’s, gender, and Africana studies. She has previously stated that she is not worried that Rutgers will fire her because she has tenure.

She is now in the spotlight once again for her remarks on race with statements such as whiteness “totally skews our view of everything.”

“Not only do white conservatives not care about Black life, but my most cynical negative read of the white supremacists among them is that they welcome this massive winnowing of Black folks in order to slow demographic shifts and shore up political power,” Cooper tweeted in April of 2020, using the Twitter handle ProfessorCrunk.

Another incident occurred in May 2020 during an interview with MSNBC’s Joy Reid. Cooper claimed that white conservatives were secretly plotting to murder low-income black Americans by attempting to lift travel restrictions months after the coronavirus first surfaced in the United States.

Cooper has written extensively concerning her hatred of white conservatives on her blog called Crunk Feminist Collective, where she writes under the name “Crunktastic.”

“Newt Gingrich is white rage personified. And for it, he gets loads of applause. So is Jan Brewer, but usually we think of white rage in masculine terms,” Cooper wrote on her blog.

The interview with The Root, however, definitely went over the edge with racial animosity. The segment was entitled “Unpacking The Attacks On Critical Race Theory” and took place on September 21. It is yet one more instance of Cooper’s voiced hatred for white conservatives and her support of Critical Race Theory.

Rutgers is not commenting on any of these incidents. But as outrage mounts over them, Cooper may find herself persona non grata at the university before long.

People are enraged over Cooper’s comments and want the university to take action:

Of course she’s a worthless gender studies professor and a racist 👍🏻
