Ga. TA: Dems should 'wage war' on 'crappy' white electorate
- A University of Georgia teaching assistant posted on his personal Facebook page that Democrats should "wage war on the white electorate."
- The TA also asserted that white people are "crappy" and that their institutions should be "dismantled."
A University of Georgia teaching assistant called for Democrats to “wage war on the white electorate," which he called "crappy."
Irami Osei-Frimpong also referred to white people as “crappy,” and said that white churches, schools, and families would have to be “dismantled” to remedy the issue of white supremacy.
"We can talk about voter suppression. We can talk about ID laws," the TA said. "But all of this begins and ends with the fact that we make crappy White people."
"So if we are serious, we have to dismantle the institutions that make crappy white people," he continued. "Their churches, their schools, their families."
The TA's student profile indicates that his research includes educational philosophy. His comments come on the heels of a contentious gubernatorial race in Georgia, in which Republican nominee Brian Kemp declared victory over Democratic nominee Stacey Abrams, who has not yet declared victory.
"So, Georgia, are we finished with the illusion that White Georgians don't vote to protect the perks of White Supremacy?" Osei-Frimpong wrote, while later adding that "Democrats need to go to war on the White electorate.
"Respectability Democrats, Black and White, are worthless," Osei-Frimpong continued.
Campus Reform reached out to Osei-Frimpong for further comment, but did not hear back in time for publication.
“I think that it is highly inappropriate for a course instructor to make those kinds of comments, even outside of the classroom," UGA senior pre-law student Sara Kearns told Campus Reform. "These comments were posted to a public forum, regardless of whether this was a personal account or not. His views outside of school are still his views when he is teaching. They're racist.”
In August, Osei-Frimpong tweeted a barrage of attacks on white students, comparing them to “autistic kids." When Campus Reform asked Kearns about how the university has handled the black TA’s prior comments, she said, “I think that the fact that UGA has not done something about this person shows that liberal bias on campuses is real and that these particular types of issues seem to be overlooked. If races were reversed in this situation, he would have been suspended or fired.”
Campus Reform reached out to Interim Department Head for the UGA Philosophy Department Beth Preston and the Executive Director for Media and Communications Greg Trevor. Neither request for comment was returned in time for press.
