Drexel ‘White Genocide’ Prof Blames Whiteness for Texas Church Shooting

Drexel ‘White Genocide’ Prof Blames Whiteness for Texas Church Shooting

“whiteness is a structure of privilege and it’s a structure of power”

This guy really gets around. He also has a one size fits all explanation for everything.

FOX News reports:

Controversial Drexel professor blames ‘whiteness’ for Texas church shooting

“Whiteness” caused Texas church shooter Devin Kelley to open fire on parishioners Sunday, killing 26 people, according to a controversial Drexel University professor.

George Ciccariello-Maher, the liberal professor who was booted from campus for tweets blaming the Las Vegas massacre on “Trumpism” and “white victimization,” now claims white “entitlement” is the motivating factor behind mass-shootings.

“Whiteness is never seen as a cause, in and of itself, of these kinds of massacres,” Ciccariello-Maher said in an interview with Democracy Now!, adding, “despite the fact that whiteness is a structure of privilege and it’s a structure of power, and a structure that, when it feels threatened, you know, lashes out.”

He promoted the interview on Twitter as a discussion about “white masculinity, militarism, and terror after Sutherland Springs.”

Ciccariello-Maher, who now only teaches online classes, said the public needs to be asking questions such as: “What makes white men so prone to this kind of behavior?”

Though Ciccariello-Maher acknowledged he didn’t know all the facts about the Texas massacre, he said feelings of frustrated “entitlement” and an “institutional apparatus that trains people in violence” and makes them feel “they’re on the losing side of history” can lead them to “resort to violence.”

Yet 3.25% of our country — young Black males — commit 50% of our country’s murders. Is the cause of this far greater amount of violence Black privilege and Black entitlement?

    Now, now….there you go, trying to use your own White Privilege[TM] and presenting actual facts, instead of reacting with hysterical feeeeeeeeeeeeeeelings, and dispassionately analyzing what’s happening in the realm of killings that surely must be spontaneously made by rogue guns which violently force themselves into the hands of unwitting (not to be confused with utterly witless!) otherwise-innocent individuals of color.

This twit should be thankful that cluelessness isn’t painful; else he’d be in a world of hurt.

… and makes them feel “they’re on the losing side of history”

If by “history” he means that of Western civilization, they’re not on the losing side of history, they are its history, all of it. The rise and dominance of the West is the history of white males. From Celtic hill-forts at one end to Semitic trading-routes at the other, thousands of miles of white testosterone, and damn near nothing else. So is that “good” or “bad”? That’s not the issue; it just “is”.

This dude is like a pale version of Ta’Nitwit Coates.

Just more proof that being educated does not equate with being intelligent.
