If you’re a white person, I have bad news: I’m sorry, but you might have to die.
That’s just the way it is.
There’s a need in the world, and that’s for black communities to be made whole. If your demise is required, then so be it. And it’s lookin’ like it may be.
That’s the breaks.
From the broken…system known as the American public education system.
Last week, Irami Osei-Frimpong — a teaching assistant at the University of Georgia — posted to Facebook the regretful but ultimately productive fate of all you honkies, on the Overheard at UGA FB page:
“Some white people may have to die for black communities to be made whole in this struggle to advance to freedom. … [To suggest otherwise is] ahistorical and dangerously naive.”
Here’s a screencap, courtesy of Campus Reform (as is the story):
He also explained thusly, in a now-deleted post to Medium.com:
“Killing some white people isn’t genocide; it’s killing some white people. … We had to kill some white people to get out of slavery. Maybe if we’d killed more during the 20th century we still wouldn’t talk about racialized voter disenfranchisement and housing, education, and employment discrimination. This should not be controversial.”
Well. There ya go. The lovely melody of rationale.
From Campus Reform:
Osei-Frimpong claimed in May 2017 that Facebook suspended him for quoting from an article which detailed how Texas A&M professor Tommy Curry had said “in order to be equal, in order to be liberated, some white people may have to die.”
He sounds nice.
On January 12th, the philosophy TA and sensible songbird had this to tweet:
“Fighting white people is a skill. You have to get used to fighting White people. It takes practice.”
Fighting White people is a skill. Really, it's one reason I'm in support of integrated schools. You have to get used to fighting White people. It takes practice.
"Blacks kill Blacks because they have never been trained to kill Whites"

More from CR:
Last semester, at a Young Democrats meeting, Frimpong compared Southern whites in America to “sociopaths” and “autistic kids.” Later on, in November, he called for Democrats to “wage war on the white electorate” and wrote that white “institutions” that “make crappy white people” such as churches, schools, and families must be “dismantled.” Facebook subsequently gave Osei-Frimpong a temporary suspension.
So what about repercussions from the university?
Regarding his latest comments, a spokesperson at UGA’s Equal Opportunities Office said in an email to former Campus Reform Correspondent Andrew Lawrence that Osei-Frimpong’s views expressed his “personal opinion,” in his “personal capacity,” on a private platform.
The spokesperson also asked Lawrence to contact their office if any information was discovered that showed Osei-Frimpong made “discriminatory or harassing comments” in his capacity as a member of the UGA community.
Some of Osei-Frimpong’s UGA colleagues have gone as far to defend his previous comments about white Americans. UGA Associate Professor of Brain and Behavioral Science Dr. Janet Frick once tweeted that the TA’s comments were not hate speech, but rather “hurt your feelings speech.”
