A Michigan State University professor said Republicans were a bunch of “dying white people” who “raped this country” and wanted to prevent “black people” from voting in a secretly recorded tirade during the first day of a creative writing class, Campus Reform reported.
“If you go to the Republican convention in Florida, you see all of the old Republicans with the dead skin cells washing off them,” the professor reportedly told students. “They are cheap. They don’t want to pay taxes because they have already raped this country and gotten everything out of it they possibly could.”
The professor did not return messages seeking comment or verification that he is the individual in the video.
Campus Reform obtained the eight-minute video from a student who secretly recorded the lecture. At one point, the professor accused Republicans of devising a plan for “getting black people not to vote.”
“They don’t want to pay for your tuition because who are you?” he asked. “Well, to me you are somebody.”
“This country still is full of closet racists,” he said. “What do you think is going on in South Carolina and North Carolina. Voter suppression. Its about getting black people not to vote. Why? Because black people tend to vote Democratic.”
“Why would would Republicans want to do it?” he asked. “Because Republicans are not a majority in this country anymore. They are a bunch of dead white people. Or dying white people.”
