The Texas A&M University President says the professor who told a radio audience that “white people may need to die to achieve equality” was only exercising his free speech rights and won’t be fired. It’s not at all a hate crime.
He said he was discussing “killing white people in context”.
Dr. Tommy Curry is a hater but he gets a pass. White people deserved to die in Jango Unchained, he said, but it didn’t happen and it’s only “entertainment” or something “Black Panthers” do it. he takes exception to that.
He then goes on to espouse the idea of killing whites in “self-defense”. He defines “self-defense” as achieving equality by killing them.
Curry also blames white people for black children dying though they are mostly being killed by other blacks.
We better hope the left doesn’t get to take our guns away. We’re going to need them.
The university president addressed the students with an absurd defense of hate speech by Dr. Curry:
I am writing you tonight with a message that may seem ill-timed given our wonderful graduation ceremonies taking place this week. At the same time, this is a message about Aggies and that for which we stand. As such, I cannot think of a more appropriate time in many ways to write to you in this regard.
As you may know, a podcast interview by one of our professors that took place approximately four and a half years ago resurfaced this week on social media, seen for the first time by many of us. The interview features disturbing comments about race and violence that stand in stark contrast to Aggie core values most notably those of respect, excellence, leadership and integrity values that we hold true toward all of humanity.
As we know, the First Amendment of the U.S. 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 stand for equality.
We stand against the advocacy of violence, hate, and killing.
We firmly commit to the success, not the destruction, of each other.
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.

Texas A&M University President Michael K. Young makes $1.13 million a year. He says Curry’s ideas don’t represent the university’s values but he will let this professor teach the students.
People who oppose some of this leftist hate are denied their free speech rights on college campuses but Curry gets a pass.
