Anthea Butler YouTube screenshot Guarisco GroupUniversity of Pennsylvania professor Anthea Butler called God racist in an essay she wrote after the Trayvon Martin verdict in 2013.

In May 2014, University of Connecticut anthropology professor James Boster was recorded screaming at peaceful evangelists preaching in a courtyard on the UConn campus.

Praise Darwin!)
