Professor Blames Whites For Her Menstrual Problems

Zandria Robinson, the recently-departed University of Memphis professor who described “whiteness” as synonymous with “terror,” had even more old tweets resurface Thursday, in which she blames whites for every lethal riot in U.S. history, blasts Dick and Jane stories for being “heteropatriarchal,” and even attributes her menstrual disorder to white “microaggressions.”  (RELATED: Professor: ‘Whiteness’ Is ‘Terror,’ Confederate Flag Represents ‘Capitalism’)

Robinson’s blistering anti-white statements first drew widespread attention thanks to reporting by the website Campus Reform. On Tuesday, Memphis distanced itself from Robinson, saying she was no long employed there and deleting her profile page. Initially there were rumors Memphis had fired Robinson for her tweets, but it turns out Robinson has simply left the school for a new position over at Rhodes College. (RELATED: ‘Whiteness’ is ‘Terror’ Professor Lands At Fancypants College That’s 77 PERCENT WHITE)

Robinson has belatedly made her Twitter feed private, but Thursday Campus Reform published screenshots of several older tweets on her account that show a persistent pattern of hating whites, Christians, and even other blacks.

In one particularly strange pair of tweets made in March, Robinson admitted to having severe premenstrual dysphoric disorder (PMDD), a condition characterized by emotional and mood problems. Due to her difficulty treating it, Robinson theorized her menstrual mood swings may simply have been caused by white people rather than any internal hormonal fluctuations:

In another tweet made days later, she made clear that whites aren’t the only problem in her life, but also a huge swath of blacks, including Christians:

A month later, she turned her venom onto innocuous Dick and Jane children’s books:

More recently, she made the bold claim that the only destructive riots in American history were by whites against blacks:

Robinson’s claim here is simply factually untrue. While there are many cases of devastating anti-black riots in U.S. history, including the Tulsa race riot and the Chicago race riot, there are also several destructive race riots that involved primarily black populations, such as the 1992 Rodney King riots and the 1967 Detroit riot.

Despite Robinson’s declarations, her former and future colleagues have offered effusive praise for her work.

“[We wish] she would have stayed,” Memphis dean Tom Nenon told the Commercial AppealCharles McKinney, who chairs Rhodes College’s Africana studies department chair, described Robinson to the Appeal as “the future of African-American studies, of Southern studies.”
