“What black scholars can study and speak about has become extremely narrow, especially under the Trump administration, he said.” chronicle.com/article/Tommy-…
Let’s be clear that this is because university administrations are cowardly and in the case of public schools it’s also because university administrations don’t respect the law of the land, which includes the first amendment
So I woke up to an email from someone thanking me for “defending” Tommy Curry and going on to say that I should read his critiques of feminism, which apparently is anti-Black ......... 🤢 which puts this tweet in context:
Here’s the thing, I don’t want a fucking misogynist and misogynoirist especially running around academia but what’s interesting is that he isn’t in trouble for hating Black women or our liberation. Just for seeming like a threat to polite white supremacy.
In either case I offer no defense of him or his ideas, actually. I just point out that he’s right on this: university administrations are attacking Black scholars in a white supremacist manner.
But it sounds like Tommy Curry benefited from white supremacy too because his critiques of Black feminism are probably one reason he got as far in the academy as he did.
Sounds like this dude helped white supremacy attack Black women and is now upset that white supremacy came for him 🤷🏽‍♀️
