University Dean Resigns Over Tweets Calling the American Flag a Symbol of Racism

University Dean Resigns Over Tweets Calling the American Flag a Symbol of Racism

“The [American] flag represents a systemic history of racism for my people. Police are a part of that system.”

This dean had just been appointed, too. Should have deleted his Twitter account.

U. Alabama dean resigns after tweets tying American flag, police to racism resurface

The assistant vice president and dean of students at the University of Alabama resigned Thursday after several of his old tweets expressing anti-American sentiments surfaced.

After Breitbart News published several of Jamie Riley’s controversial tweets in a Wednesday article, the university confirmed that the dean had “resigned his position” with the university “by mutual agreement.”

The tweets in question were from 2017, more than a year before Riley began his short seven months as dean. The tweets express disdain for the American flag, American law enforcement officers, and the opinions of “white people” regarding racism in society.

“The [American] flag represents a systemic history of racism for my people. Police are a part of that system. Is it that hard to see the correlation?” one of Riley’s old tweets read.

“I’m baffled about how the 1st thing white people say is, ‘That’s not racist!’ when they can’t even experience racism? You have 0 opinion!” another old tweet read.

In yet another tweet from 2016, Riley questioned the motives of those who make movies about slavery, suggesting that such films might be produced “to remind Black people of our place in society,” rather than “educating the unaware.”

@SuperTrump2020, I clicked on your link. Twitter tells me, “Sorry, that page doesn’t exist!” More shadow banning?

“I’m baffled about how the 1st thing white people say is, ‘That’s not racist!’ when they can’t even experience racism?”

That’s absolutely wrong. That happens all the time where I live.

One of my golf buddies said the other day that he doesn’t watch the NFL anymore because it’s a plantation with all white owners. This from a man who is a retired HS teacher, whose daughter is a LtCol in the Army. I’m not sure I can play golf with a man who thinks all white people are racist, which he pretty obviously does.

    Then, don’t play golf with him. Simple. As I’ve gotten older, I’ve become more selective. An exception I make is for a friend I have known since childhood. He is ln the left, but is one who is capable of thinking, not just mouthing talking points and cliché.
