I fully support Drexel professor George Ciccariello-Maher’s statements. They serve as a reminder that white genocide isn’t real and a common neo-Nazi term used to justify racist violence. Also the Haitian Revolution (what George is referencing) was the most successful slave revolt in nearly two millennia due to killing white slave owners.
Drexel’s reprimanding of George’s statement is a violation of free speech and pandering to white supremacists. George has long been an accomplice to the the queer and trans communities and we owe him our backing.
