The parade of college snowflakes throwing hissy fits at college graduation ceremonies continues. This time, however, a Princeton professor took to the stage to slam the President as “racist” and “sexist.” She blamed President Trump for keeping black families from advancing, even though President Obama has been responsible for that for the past eight years.
The professor, Keeanga-Yamahtta Taylor, is an assistant professor in the department of African American studies at Princeton and author the book of “From #BlackLivesMatter to Black Liberation.” She writes opinion columns for The Guardian when she’s not cashing Princeton paychecks, and one thing is clear: she is mad. She is mad at everyone. She is mad at Barack Obama for not doing more for black people, and she is mad at Hillary Clinton for being so distrustful. She is, however, REALLY mad at President Donald Trump.
Taylor gave the commencement address at Hampshire College in Massachusetts on May 20, and video of her remarks is only now making waves. It is disturbing that no one attending the commencement was outraged enough to report her comments to the media before now.
‘The president of the United States, the most powerful politician in the world, is a racist, sexist megalomaniac,’ Taylor said roughly two minutes into her speech.
‘It’s not a benign observation, but has meant tragic consequences for many people in our country – from terror-inducing raids in the communities of undocumented immigrants to his disparaging of refugees in search of freedom and respite.’
Taylor, who is the author of ‘From #BlackLivesMatter to Black Liberation’, suggested that political activism is the reason why the federal court has struck down Trump’s executive orders that restrict immigration from several Muslim-majority countries.
‘When Trump’s first illegal Muslim travel ban was attempted, thousands of ordinary people flooded the airports around this country,’ she said.
‘And because of those protests, and the defiance they represented, that ban was stopped – not once, but twice.
‘It is not enough just to be outraged. Injustice has to actually be defied.’
During her speech, she also stated that ‘the status quo is increasingly intolerable’.
‘The political and economic status quo in this country has failed over and over again to deliver a better way to the vast majority of people in this country,’ Taylor stated.
‘For millions of people, the status quo is increasingly intolerable. It gnaws away at the tiny threads that millions of people are hanging on to in their daily struggles to make ends meet.
‘Now is the time for defiance. Perhaps most importantly, we need hope.’
Taylor, who has a doctorate from Northwestern University in African American Studies, said Trump has ’empowered an attorney general who embraces and promulgates policies that have already proven to have had a devastating impact on black families and communities.’
