I Want to Kill White People
A Professor’s Call to Genocide
Just when you thought that only evil white people like Michael Richards who played Kramer on Seinfeld were the only racists in the country, another vile bigot appears. But what is even more amazing is that this racist is not some dumb trailer trash skinhead but a black man named Kamau Kambon who is a former North Carolina State college professor. And unlike Richards who did say some bad stuff, this university instructor is calling for actual genocide.
Kamau Kambon was speaking at a forum on Hurricane Katrina media coverage at Howard University Law School when he made this comment in a very nonchalant manner:
We are at war. Every white person on earth is a plantation master. You’re either supporting white people in their process of death, or you’re for African liberation.
And then finally I want to say that we need one idea, and we’re not thinking about a solution to the problem. We’re dealing with all these other things, but these are diversions from a solution to the problem. And we have to start to think about a solution to the problem so that these young brothers and sisters who are here now, who are 15, 16 or 17, are not here 25 years later talking about these same problems.
Now how do I know that the white people know that we are going to come up with a solution to the problem. I know it because they have retina scans, they have what they call racial profiling, DNA banks, and they’re monitoring our people to try to prevent the one person from coming up with the one idea. And the one idea is, how we are going to exterminate white people because that in my estimation is the only conclusion I have come to. We have to exterminate white people off the face of the planet to solve this problem.
Now I don’t care whether you clap or not, but I’m saying to you that we need to solve this problem because they are going to kill us. And I will leave on that. So we just have to just set up our own system and stop playing and get very serious and not be diverted from coming up with a solution to the problem and the problem on the planet is white people.
His remarks are caught on video so he and his admirers can’t deny them. And if you see the video you can tell that he is not joking and that his words can’t be taken out of context. Mr. Kambon truly appears to have meant what he said.
Now we can’t go into a man’s heart and know beyond the shadow of a doubt that he really wants to exterminate white people but from all indications he appears to think that genocide is okay.
I don’t know about you but this sounds like the insane ranting of a homicidal maniac. What is more bizarre is that his remarks smack of X-File type conspiracy theories, which no educated person should believe in.
Are white people really involved in a maniacal plot to kill off all blacks?
Did George W. Bush and Halliburton plan Hurricane Katrina to wipe out New Orleans’s black population?
And if the Bush Administration really did manage to manipulate nature, then they would become so powerful that they can’t be stopped. If that is indeed the case, then why doesn’t George W. Bush easily wipe out all of our enemies like North Korea and Iran with earthquakes?
America is a free country and if you want to be an ignorant racist, then that is your right. However, there are some lines no one should cross and this is one of them. Racists can never infringe upon the right of those they hate and they should never incite violence against those they scorn. Calling for genocide is clearly inciting violence and there are some people who will take it seriously.
It is one thing to think and say that you think that racial group X is inferior and you don’t want any interaction with them. Perhaps this option may be preferable because you won’t position yourself to provoke a fight with them.
However, it is quite another thing to actively say and do things that could trigger a violent confrontation.
If Mr. Kambon said that he thought white people were evil and left it at that, then I would just ignore him. Instead, he is saying that he wants to kill me and I take this type of threat seriously, especially since I am a combat veteran and I have had numerous people try to kill me.
But what I find even more galling is how this man became a college professor in the first place with all of these insane beliefs.
Then again, former Klu Klux Klan member Robert Byrd became a long term senator and is beloved by democrats so I am not surprised.
Nevertheless, what frustrates me even more is that the news media is stilling harping on Michael Richards who apologized profusely for far less egregious remarks but they are silent on Kambon. Political commentator Sean Hannity is about the only media personality really tackling this issue. Granted Mr. Kambon is not a celebrity but he is advocating genocide and that is never funny and never acceptable.
