Drexel Professor Wanted To ‘Vomit’ When Passenger Gave Soldier A First-Class Seat On Plane
You want hot takes that infuriate a lot of people? Well, George Ciccariello got’em. You may remember the outlandish Drexel University professor made waves in December when he wished for “White Genocide” for Christmas.
Drexel University investigated the tweet and denounced it by saying the comment was “utterly reprehensible” and “deeply disturbing.” However, they also said he wouldn’t lose his job because the statement was “protected speech.”
On June 8, 2015, Ciccariello said, “Abolish the White Race.” A week later, Ciccariello said that Charleston church shooter Dylann Roof “simply put into practice what many white Americans already think.” The Drexel professor also said that the murder of 4,000 white people during the Haitian Revolution was a “good thing.”
He followed those incendiary beliefs with another provocative declaration. This time attacking a benevolent act of a first-class flyer giving their seat to a soldier.
“Some guy gave up his first class seat for a uniformed soldier. People are thanking him. I’m trying not to vomit or yell about Mosul,” he tweeted.
