UGA Grad Student Irami Osei-Frampong: “Some White People May Have To Die…”
Graduate student Irami Osei-Frampong, (also uses Osei-Frimpong) a teacher’s assistant at UGA, is under scrutiny for posting racially charged comments online. “Some white people may have to die for black communities to be made whole.” And he says he is confused as to why his comments are controversial.[The outlet quoted in this article used the name Osei-Frampong.The man’s name may be Osei- Frimpong based on his posts. We are using the outlet’s spelling without changing it].
Seriously. He wonders why the statements are controversial. This guy is a teacher’s assistant?
“Some White people may have to die for Black communities to be made whole in this struggle to advance to freedom. To pretend that’s not the case is ahistorical and dangerously naive.”
“There is a way in which White people in the South learn manners as a series of behaviors the way autistic kids learn to read social cues for behaviors. Except since these guys and gals aren’t autistic, I just feel like I’m around a bunch of sociopaths.”
“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’ve never been trained to kill Whites.’ Dr Bobby Wright”
Is that incitement to violence? The University says they are pursuing any legal actions, but the graduate student is standing firm on his statements. He says that if they fire him, he’ll be fired for doing his job.
The man at the center of the controversy is Irami Osei-Frampong — a philosophy graduate student employed by the university as a teacher’s assistant.
He speaks frequently about race and equality, but some critics believe he crossed the line when he made a post online that stated, “Some white people may have to die for black communities to be made whole.”
“I’m confused why that is so controversial,” Osei-Frampong said.
Osei-Frampong appeared on Cox Media Group radio station WGAU Tuesday morning, insisting he’s not calling for violence, but believes it should remain an option.
“It’s just a fact of history that racial justice often comes at the cost of white life,” Osei-Frampong said. “I didn’t advocate for violence. I was just honest of racial progress.”
He’s confused, alright. Some donors to the University say they are rethinking their support of the school.
“I feel like the things he is saying is inciting violence. They invite the idea into people’s minds.” Alumnus Andrew Lawrence
Osei-Frampong’s comments should be questioned. Isn’t an instructor supposed to be objective? Teach, not indoctrinate? It is another aspect of the extremism of the left in our nation’s colleges and universities. This nation has opportunity for all races – Black included. Yes, there is racism, and the more people resort to violence, the worse it will get. Racism will never be totally eradicated because people want to hate …both Black and White and every color on the spectrum. But because we have hundreds of thousands, millions – literally- of Black celebrities, athletes, millionaires, six billionaires, executives, and other occupations, you’d think this man’s narrative would be different.
