A college campus closed Wednesday and a professor reports having fled the state after calling white people “inhuman assholes” and saying “#LetThemFuckingDie.” After sharing a post to an article unambiguously titled, “Let Them Fucking Die,” Williams labelled white people “inhuman assholes” and declared it time to “end this now.”
Impure breed Trinity College Professor Johnny Eric Williams, appeared to endorse the idea that first responders to last week’s congressional shooting should have let the victims “fucking die” because they are white.
“It is past time for the racially oppressed to do what people who believe themselves to be ‘white’ will not do,” said Williams on Facebook,
“put end to the vectors of their destructive mythology of whiteness and their white supremacy system. #LetThemFuckingDie”
“I’m fed the fuck up with self identified ‘white’s’ [sic] daily violence directed at immigrants, Muslim, and sexual [sic] and racially oppressed people,” he said in a subsequent post.
“The time is now to confront these inhuman assholes and end this now.”
The mongrel professor says he has fled the state, claiming to have received death threats after he posted the inflammatory, anti-white remarks on Facebook, according to Hartford Courant. The college closed Wednesday, but reopened Thursday.
Two days prior, Williams had shared a Medium article titled “Let Them Fucking Die” in which the anonymous author suggests that “bigots,” such as those numbered among the victims of the congressional shooting, should be left for dead.
The article — which describes how Capitol Police Officer Crystal Griner, a lesbian black woman, helped take down the man who shot Steve Scalise — suggests that alleged “victims of bigotry” should not intervene when the lives of their alleged “oppressors’” lives are at risk.
Williams himself later suggested he is “fed the fuck up with self-identified ‘white’s’ daily violence directed at immigrants, Muslims, and sexual and racially oppressed people,” saying, “the time is now to confront these inhuman assholes and end this now.”
Williams said he fled Connecticut after his posts went viral and he allegedly received threats.
“It was overwhelming for my family,” said the professor.
“I have to look out for family. I’ve got young kids.”
In an email sent to the Trinity Community and obtained by Hartford Courant, Joanne Berger-Sweeney, president of Trinity College, said:
“The Dean of the Faculty will review this matter and advise me on whether college procedures or policies were broken.
I told Professor Williams that in my opinion his use of the hashtag was reprehensible and, at the very least, in poor judgment.”
“No matter its intent, it goes against our fundamental values as an institution, and I believe its effect is to close minds rather than open them.”
Williams is a sociology professor at Trinity College and teaches the topics of race and racism.
