Trinity College Professor: “Whiteness Is Terrorism”
April 28, 2019
A professor at Trinity College tweeted out that ‘whiteness is terrorism.’
Johnny Eric Williams, a sociology professor at Trinity College in Connecticut, is refusing to apologize for his racist tweet that said ‘whiteness is terrorism.’
Williams posted another tweet in which he claimed all white people were “invested in and collude with systemic white racism and white supremacy.”
Williams said of his tweets, “I don’t think they’re controversial at all.”
Several Trinity College alumni in a private Facebook group have argued that Williams’ tweets were purposefully incendiary and make Trinity look bad.
In 2017, Williams was placed on leave after being accused of making racist remarks. 6 students from the class of 2021 withdrew their acceptance from the school, and past donors chose not to donate $200,000 to the school due to the allegations.
