    In a recently revealed interview from 2012, titled “Dr. Tommy Curry on killing whites,” Curry said many black people like Nat Turner and Robert F. Williams “thought about killing white people as self-defense” and this “tradition” is still very “relevant”.

    Rod Dreher from The American Conservative found the podcast and commented on it in an article called: “When Is It OK to Kill Whites?” Curry had called for white genocide in a podcast he made.

    “When we have this conversation about violence, or killing white people, it has to be looked at in the context of historical turn,” Curry says. “And the fact that we’ve had no one address, like how relevant and how solidified this kind of tradition is, for black people saying look, in order to be equal, in order to be liberated, some white people may have to die.”

    The black professor had made other similar disturbing comments which were highlighted by The American Conservative. But in a May 10, 2017 email to students obtained by Red Alert Politics, Texas A&M President Michael K. Young refused to discipline or fire professor Tommy Curry.

    Instead, the president said: “As we know, the First Amendment of the US Constitution protects the rights of others to offer their personal views, no matter how reprehensible those views may be.”

    From KBTX: “As we know, the First Amendment of the US Constitution protects the rights of others to offer their personal views, no matter how reprehensible those views may be. It also protects our right to freedom of speech which I am exercising now. […] We wish no violence or harm even to those who espouse hateful views under the First Amendment, a sentiment that by its very nature is one that they would deny others.

    Tonight, therefore, I write to you, our beloved Aggies. Our core values are very much intact, including those for which we stand, and in contrast to that for which we most assuredly do not. This is something that needs to be said here and now and lived in all of our days.”

    If Curry had been a white professor searching for justifications to kill black people in “self-defense” the school would certainly not be reminding all of the existence of the First Amendment of the US Constitution..

    If “core values” are standing “against the advocacy of violence, hate, and killing,” then professor Curry needs to be fired immediately.

    Young may be unaware that the First Amendment prohibits the government from regulating speech, but doesn’t guarantee employment for those who work for government-funded institutions.

    Employees still represent their institution, and institutions reserve the right to fire or discipline employees who advocate white genocide.

    Curry was introduced on the podcast where he made the genocidal comments as “dr. Tommy Curry of Texas A&M” and not as dr. Tommy Curry speaking on his own personal beliefs. Texas A&M University is a coeducational public research university in College Station, Texas, United States.

    The Daily Nous reports that that statement “was taken out of context”, and was part of a wider discussion of comments by the actor Jamie Foxx about interracial violence. But Foxx says mainly the same thing during the discussion.

    The Chronicle spoke to Curry who claimed that Dreher’s interpretation was wrong.

    “It was not an incitement to violence,” Curry said. “This is an attempt by the alt-right and conservatives to demonize a black professor.”

      Calling for killing anyone is not protected by free speech period – this man is inciting violence even worse he is inciting violence against people based on the color of their skin. Change the title of his work to “When is it OK to kill Black People” … and it is just as offensive. He should be prosecuted for inciting violence. Absolutely and Texas A&M needs to suspend him.

    • Smash Islamophobia

      Clearly, there’s nothing wrong with non-Whites calling for White genocide, while for Whites to even hint at any identification with, or pride in, their people is a terrible crime. Time to wake up, people.
