Prof Blasts 'Inhuman' White People, Endorses Idea EMT's Should've Let Scalise Die
A Hartford, Conn. sociology professor labeled white people "inhuman a**holes" and endorsed the idea that first responders should have let House Majority Whip Steve Scalise (R-La.) and others die on a Virginia baseball field because of their race, Campus Reform reported.
Trinity College's Johnny Eric Williams posted the hashtag "LetThem[expletive]Die" below an emotional message on Facebook directed at white people.
On his now-locked account he wrote, "It is past time for the racially oppressed to do what people who believe themselves to be 'white' will not do - put end to the vectors of their destructive mythology of whiteness and their white supremacy system.
Willliams added that he is "fed the [expletive] up with self-identified white's daily violence directed at immigrants, Muslim and sexually and racially oppressed people. The time is now to confront these inhuman [expletives] and end this now."
Williams then linked to a story from "Medium" which offers a list of instances in which white people should be left for dead because of racial injustices.
"If you see them drowning, if you see them in a burning building... if they are in a park and they turn their weapons on each other, do nothing," the article reads.
"Let them [expletive] die."
Scalise and several others were shot in an Alexandria, Va. ballpark by a left-wing activist who was also white.

UPDATE: Trinity President Joanne Berger-Sweeney issued a statement on Williams' comments, saying "I denounce hate speech in all its forms, I will explore all options to resolve this matter, and I will be back in touch with our community members with our decisions."
The campus was closed down Wednesday following threats to the campus over the postings.
In a statement to NBC Connecticut, Williams said he was not calling for the deaths of white people, but trying to foster debate about racial issues.
It is evident to anyone who carefully reads my posts on Facebook and Twitter that I did not call for the death of all self-identified ‘whites.’ I merely attached the hashtag to my post derived from a blog article written by Son of Baldwin entitled 'Let Them All ------- Die.' This was an admittedly provocative move to get readers to pay attention to my reasoned, reasonable, and yes angry argument. ... I posted my comments on social media to draw the attention of the readers to the current dire state of white supremacy in the nation.
