- A UPenn professor sounded off on Twitter about the recent Covington controversy.
- The professor made her comments when many media outlets framed the Covington students as harassers.
An Ivy League professor bashed “the smiling face of Whiteness” in response to the recent controversy involving an interaction between a Native American man and a Catholic teenage supporter of President Donald Trump.
“Whiteness endlessly forgives its own transgressions,” University of Pennsylvania associate professor Ebony Elizabeth Thomaswrote on Sunday about the confrontation between Covington Catholic High School student Nick Sandmann and Native American Nathan Phillips. “It rarely, if ever, gives those of us it harms and maims and kills time to process our motions [sic].”
Thomas teaches in UPenn’s Graduate School of Education.
“‘You forgive us, right? You have to forgive us! Understanding will make it better! Reconciliation! Diversity! Inclusion!’” she continued, conveying what she suggests to be the attitude of most white people.
According to Thomas, the “smiling face of Whiteness” is one that “always hides a knife behind its back.”
“That knife says this: ‘You must forgive us. You must educate us. Or else.’”
“Usually, that ‘or else’ happens anyway,” the professor adds. “But it will assuredly happen unless you kiss Whiteness’ ring.”
“The focus shouldn’t be on how these people can learn from BIPOC [Black & Indigenous People of Color],” she said. “This isn’t a Hollywood movie, and we’re flesh and blood, not magical creatures you get to use and abuse on your journey toward enlightenment.”
“The focus should be on how White folks can do better *among yourselves.*”
Campus Reform reached out to Thomas for comment but did not receive a response in time for publication.
