University of Pittsburgh professor Shanara Reid-Brinkley held a lecture Tuesday where she stated that American democracy was built on “anti-blackness” and that black citizens cannot possibly be free in America.
“I think that we’re all screwed because white people are in charge,” Reid-Brinkley said, speaking at an event at the University of Wisconsin.
She also blamed “global warming, genocide and colonization” on white people.
There was also the statement that because democracy was built on “anti-blackness,” black Americans can “never truly know freedom in today’s society,” The Badger Herald reports.
The professor also added that the Democratic Party must change to further represent the interests of blacks, specifically black millennials. (RELATED: Black Students At Absurdly Expensive College: Objective Truth Is ‘WHITE SUPREMACY’ And A ‘Myth’)
Reid-Brinkley will hold two other events in Wisconsin this week.
