Pennsylvania State University is defending a professor that regularly dehumanizes his white students and accuses them of oppressing minorities. He told one white student that because he is white and breathing means he may have oppressed people that day. Professor Sam Richards, who teaches the 700-student “SOC119: Race and Ethnic Relations” course, often accuses his white students of white privilege and racism.
“I just take the average white guy in class, whoever it is, it doesn’t really matter. Dude, this guy here. Stand up, bro. What’s your name, bro?”
“Look at Russell, right here, it doesn’t matter what he does. If I match him up with a black guy in class, or a brown guy… who’s just like him, has the same GPA, looks like him, walks like him, talks like him, acts in a similar way…and we send them into the same jobs…Russell has the benefit of having white skin.”
On March 4th, Richards attacked two white students as “oppressors” while discussing the Critical Race Theory training taking place at Coca-Cola. The company made headlines when it was revealed they were telling employees to be less white. Companies actually believe that it makes sense to stir u hatred between the blacks and whites.
Richards said according to Campus Reform:
“To be less white is to be less oppressive, be less arrogant, be less certain, be less defensive, be less ignorant, be more humble, listen, believe, break with the party, break with white solidarity.”
“I think, you know, it’s more or less just recognizing the advantages you have in life. Whatever that may be, and not thinking yourself superior because of that.”
“White people have been like, ‘we’re oppressors, we’re arrogant, we’re really confident or certain, defensive — and dumb,” Richards replied. “White people are dumb. That’s a message: White people are dumb. That is a key message right there.”
The professor then asked Brian, “Who have you oppressed today?”
“I haven’t oppressed anyone today,” said Brian.
“You’re breathing. Have you left your house today?,” replied Richards.
“Yes,” Brian said.
“Okay, so you may have oppressed somebody,” Richards concluded.
In a statement to Fox News, Penn State defended the professor:
“Professor Richards purposefully teaches in a manner designed to promote discussion across a spectrum of opinions. His class is a popular elective, in which each semester hundreds (~800) of students join, bringing their varied perspectives.”
