An actual University of Georgia graduate student doesn’t seem to understand why saying “some white people may have to die” is garnering so much backlash.
Here is more via The Daily Caller:
“Philosophy grad student and teaching assistant Irami Osei-Frimpong originally made the comment on the Overheard at UGA Facebook page Jan. 16, Campus Reform reported.
“Some white people may have to die for Black communities to be made whole in this struggle to advance to freedom,” Osei-Frimpong wrote, according to a screenshot from Campus Reform. “To pretend that’s not the case is ahistorical and generally naive.”
Osei-Frimpong does not understand why he is getting criticized, however.
“I’m confused why that is so controversial,” Osei-Frimpong said, WSB-TV reported Tuesday.
The UGA grad student added he was not trying to call for violence, but was being “honest of racial progress,” according to WSB-TV reported.
UGA donors and alumni have suggested to stop giving money to the school unless Osei-Frimpong is fired.
“If they fire me, they’d be firing me for doing my job,” Osei-Frimpong said.
UGA released a statement Sunday saying they were considering legal options.”

It seems Osei-Frimpong has a vast history of demeaning white people. One time even going as far as comparing white southern folks to “sociopaths” and “autistic kids.”
But this man’s hate doesn’t end there. According to Campus Reform, the teacher’s aid has also called for white people’s churches, schools and families to be “dismantled” because they, in his own words, create “crappy white people.” What are universities teaching these people?
Perhaps what’s even sadder about this whole saga is that we can easily assume the only reason the University is now taking steps to do anything about this man’s hate is because this time word got out. If it wouldn’t have they would have just let it go. Makes you wonder what would have happened if a white teacher’s aid made those same comments about black or Latino folks, doesn’t it?
