Disturbing: This Black Professor’s Disgusting Comment About White People Reportedly Got Her Fired

When a one-time assistant professor of sociology posted her reaction to the mass shooting that left nine Charleston, S.C., churchgoers dead, word soon followed that she was no longer a member of the college’s staff.

On her personal Twitter account, which was linked to the University of Memphis website, Zandria Robinson opined that whites are “conditioned” to mass murder.

The controversial post suggests that she is waiting “for thinkpieces about how more mental health services could prevent white people from acting how they’re conditioned to act,” though this was far from her first foray into divisive rhetoric.

Days later, she followed up with a social media comment stating that “[w]hiteness is most certainly and inevitably terror.”

A blog, New South Negress, linked in the bio of her now-protected Twitter profile contains rampant generalizations about whites in just the most recent entry. The post, which centers on the ongoing debate over the Confederate flag, states, in part:

Because of course white people do not talk about actual racial terrorism, its flesh, as it were–extrajudicial murders, police murders, racialized sexual violence, displacement of communities, food deserts, employment discrimination, unequal health treatment, chemical waste dumps, microaggressions–but rather the symbols, simulacra, and smoke of racial terrorism, and the backwards white folks who the other white folks think they are not. at. all. like because those backwards white folks cling to those symbols of racial terrorism and are poor and live in small towns and are on meth.

The backlash over her most recent comments prompted media outlets and critics to contact the University of Memphis, which confirmed Robinson is no longer an employee.

Capture

While the above statement led to some speculation that Robinson was fired due to her comments, subsequent social media updates indicate she had resigned prior to the recent controversy.

WATCH: What This Garbage Man/Former Marine Just Did To A Robber Gives Him Instant Hero Status

It could be one of the best lines ever by a city worker who’s credited with foiling a would-be robbery at a convenience store — a rookie sanitation worker (garbage man) transitioning into a new career after serving as a U.S. Marine. When asked about his stepping up to take down the assailant, the fast-acting worker quipped: “This was just another day taking out the trash.”

The New York Daily News reports on the quick thinking and decisive action by 44-year-old Curtis Jackson of Brooklyn, who said his instincts took over when he saw a man with his hand in his pocket as though holding onto a gun. Jackson reportedly charged the man, took him to the floor, and kept him pinned until police arrived at the Manhattan 7-11 store.

“The weapon in assailant Nicholas Mecina’s pocket turned out to be a marker, but Jackson wrestled the 47-year-old homeless man to the ground while his partner called 911.”

The two city workers told the newspaper they had stopped in the store to use the restroom. But their intent to “rest” turned into an assist in an arrest, as you can see from clicking above to watch a cellphone video of the incident.

Ted Cruz Reveals He Watched Pornography With Supreme Court Justices

In a newly released autobiography, presidential candidate Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, recounts viewing “explicit, hard-core pornography” with members of the United States Supreme Court.

In his book, A Time For Truth, Cruz explains that, while serving as a clerk for the late Chief Justice William Rehnquist shortly after graduating from Harvard Law School, he viewed explicit images with his boss and retired Justice Sandra Day O’Connor. “We were in front of a large computer screen gazing at explicit, hard-core pornography,” according to an excerpt obtained by The Washington Post.

The reason for watching the material was a case that was before the court relating to online pornography regulation. Because the clerks were not Internet-savvy (this was the mid-1990s), court librarians set up a demonstration to show how easy it was to find explicit material online. According to The Post, Cruz watched the librarian type the word “cantaloupe,” though she misspelled it.

“A slew of hard-core, explicit images showed up onscreen,” Cruz wrote. “As we watched these graphic pictures fill our screens, wide-eyed, no one said a word. Except for Justice O’Connor, who lowered her head, squinted slightly, and muttered, ‘Oh, my.’”

A RealClearPolitics average of polls shows Cruz in eighth place among GOP presidential hopefuls with about 5 percent of the vote. As of now, Cruz would presumably qualify for the first two Republican debates to be held in August and September by Fox News and CNN, respectively.

SHOCK SURVEY: 35% Of Americans Say They’d Consider This Extreme Action In The Age Of Obama

Considering how often the president of the United States criticizes his own country as a nation plagued by systemic racism, unfair to aspiring immigrants, burdened by the stains of social injustice, and economically divided by class struggles, it may actually be little surprise how many Americans say they’d consider giving up their citizenship.

CNBC reports on a recent online poll, the results of which show that more than one-third of those citizens surveyed — “35% of American-born residents and emigrants” — indicated they would be open to packing up and moving out of the United States. Some of the poll’s internal numbers are even more startling:

This percentage greatly increases for those age 18 to 34. More than half of millennials, a whopping 55 percent, said that they would consider leaving the U.S. for foreign shores. Among them, 43 percent of men and 38 percent of women noted that a higher salary would be a factor in their relocation decision.

The online survey of more than 2,000 adults was conducted by a company based in the United Kingdom whose business is facilitating peer-to-peer money transfer, thus avoiding bank fees.

The CNBC report also points out that, during the presidency of Barack Obama, there’s been a sharp increase in the number of expatriates — people who have renounced their U.S. citizenship and taken up residence in foreign countries. Noting that the number of annual expatriations was far below 1,000 up until 2010, CNBC says that figure for 2014 swelled “to a record 3,415 U. S. residents — a 14 percent increase since 2013.”

“But, that number continues to rise,” the report says. “In the first quarter of 2015 alone, 1,336 individuals chose to renounce citizenship, another record high reported by the [Treasury] department.”

A website called Daily Reckoning published an article a little more than a year ago in which author Doug Bandow, a senior fellow at the Cato Institute, contended, “The U.S. government is driving some of its most productive citizens abroad. The only beneficiaries are countries such as Singapore and Switzerland, which offer sanctuary to Americans fleeing avaricious Uncle Sam.”

Bandow went on to argue that it is a “moral imperative” to reduce the government’s take of the citizens’ hard-earned income and wealth:

America once was a land of opportunity. As it loses that distinction more people are tempted to go elsewhere.

WATCH: Obama, You Know You’re A Bad President When Jimmy Carter Calls You Out

For the second time in less than a year, former president Jimmy Carter was publicly critical of President Obama’s foreign policy, contending America’s “respect in the world is probably lower than it was six or seven years ago.”

Carter made the unflattering remarks while at the Aspen Institute last week.

Before touching on Obama, Carter was asked to give his opinion on Secretary of State John Kerry. “I think [John Kerry’s] one of the best secretaries of state we’ve ever had. I think he’s outstanding,” Carter said to cheers.

The former president was then asked about Obama’s successes on the world stage. “On the world stage, I think they’ve been minimal,” Carter answered. “I think he’s done some good things domestically, like the health programs and so forth, but on the world stage, just to be objective about it as I can, I can’t think of many nations in the world where we have a better relationship now than we did when he took over. If you look at Russia, if you look at England, if you look at China, if you look at Egypt, and so forth.”

“I’m not saying it’s his fault,” he continued, “but we have not improved our relationship with individual countries, and I would say that the United States’ influence and prestige and respect in the world is probably lower now than it was six or seven years ago.”

This is not the first time Carter has been critical of the Obama administration’s foreign policy. Speaking to the Ft. Worth Star Telegram in October, he called out Obama’s approach to fighting the Islamic State:

We waited too long. We let the Islamic State build up its money, capability and strength and weapons while it was still in Syria. Then when [ISIS] moved into Iraq, the Sunni Muslims didn’t object to their being there and about a third of the territory in Iraq was abandoned.
