According to a Drexel University professor, all white males are prone to feel not only feel privileged but we are also prone to killing numerous people. It may sound so absurd that you’re laughing hysterically, but realize that this guy is serious.
George Ciccariello-Maher used to teach in the classroom at Drexel until he took to Twitter after the October 1 mass shooting in Las Vegas, when he tweeted that it was caused by ‘Trumpism’ and ‘whiteness’. After his tweets, the university banished him from the campus but still allows him to teach online courses from his home.
He blamed the Las Vegas shooting on male whiteness and is again blaming the Texas church shooting on the same racist and privileged attitude of white males.
“Whiteness” caused Texas church shooter Devin Kelley to open fire on parishioners Sunday, killing 26 people, according to a controversial Drexel University professor.
George Ciccariello-Maher, the liberal professor who was booted from campus for tweets blaming the Las Vegas massacre on “Trumpism” and “white victimization,” now claims white “entitlement” is the motivating factor behind mass-shootings.
“Whiteness is never seen as a cause, in and of itself, of these kinds of massacres,” Ciccariello-Maher said in an interview with Democracy Now!, adding, “despite the fact that whiteness is a structure of privilege and it’s a structure of power, and a structure that, when it feels threatened, you know, lashes out.”
He promoted the interview on Twitter as a discussion about “white masculinity, militarism, and terror after Sutherland Springs.”
If Maher is so dead set on blaming mass shootings on male whiteness, then how would he explain the 2nd weekend mass shooting in Texas over the same weekend where 4 people, were shot along an interstate near Austin. A 7-year-old girl is one of the victims and she is in critical condition after being shot in the head. The shooter in this case was an illegal alien from Mexico, obviously not white and not part of the American male whiteness that Maher is blaming everything on.
