Scripps College Student Earns Degree With Thesis Celebrating Mao Zedong and ‘Black Marxism’

“Scripps is an all-women’s liberal arts college in Southern California with tuition of nearly $80,000 a year.”

This student would be a hit with Biden adviser Anita Dunn. She is also a fan of Mao.

College senior earns degree with thesis celebrating ‘Mao Zedong’ and ‘Black Marxism’

A Scripps College senior has earned a degree in organizational studies with a thesis on how the successes of “Mao Zedong’s Marxism” helped the Black Panther Party defeat “American militarism.”

The 48-page document, accepted by the Southern California liberal arts college, celebrates the Chinese Communist chairman for helping inspire the militant African-American organization.

“The Panther’s form of militarism and militarization called for a cultural overhaul in line with the Black Power Movement and the Black Arts Movement that defined their time,” Chiugo Akujuobi writes in her thesis, which was shared publicly on her LinkedIn profile.

Scripps is an all-women’s liberal arts college in Southern California with tuition of nearly $80,000 a year.

It is part of the Claremont College consortium, a group of five highly selective liberal arts colleges in Claremont, California, that also includes Pitzer, Pomona, Harvey Mudd and Claremont McKenna colleges.

In her Scripps thesis, Akujuobi does not hide her fondness for Mao Zedong’s influence on the militant black organization’s political philosophy.

“Beautifully, the Black Panther Party achieved this new imagining of militarism and militarization through the lens of Mao Zedong’s Marxist interpretations that aided in forming the communist institution of Maoism,” she writes.

Akubjuobi and her family voluntarily immigrated to the United States from Nigeria, according to her Linkedin profile. Now, she claims that she is a “marginalized person living under a capitalist system” and believes America is an “imperialist state” and even worthy of being “overthrown.”

Here’s your ticket! Better rush, or you’ll miss it!

If that apostrophe error is in the original, I’ll assume she wasn’t required to take English classes.

Oy.

Chiugo Akujuobi ’21 spoke to OutSmart magazine about queerness, how growing up in Houston has influenced their identity, and their evolving career goals, which include modeling and a graduate degree in communications. “Honestly, I didn’t even realize my queerness until college,” they said. “It’s so cliché, but it’s real. I feel like I always knew that I wasn’t completely a girl, or a woman, but without [seeing any nonbinary] representation, you can’t really place yourself as nonbinary.”
