A Trinity College professor who was previously disciplined for vile race-hatred has sparked outrage again with his latest social media quips.
“‘White’ kneegrows really need a lot of therapy and a good ‘ol ass kicking,'” Johnny Eric Williams said on his Facebook page on April 9.
He was subsequently asked if he was referring to black right-wing commentator Candace Owens. Instead, he claimed he was referring to former President Barack H. Obama and his wife Michelle.
“I’m referring to her other and less brazen but more insidious dangerous “white” kneegrows like Barry and Michelle Obama and many other white kneegrows you encounter daily,” he said.
On Easter Sunday, Williams went on another racist tirade on social media.
“All self-identified white people (no exceptions) are invested in and collude with systemic white racism/white supremacy,” he said on Twitter.
In an act of cowardice and unwillingness to defend his own ideas, Williams made his Twitter account private after backlash.
He also said “Whiteness is terrorism” as part of the same Twitter rant.
Williams took a mutually-agreed-upon leave of absence from Trinity College two years ago after making other racially divisive comments, including a Facebook post that said “Let Them F****** Die,” in reference to white people.
“College President Joanne Berger-Sweeney said the college lost $200,000 in donations as a result and students had withdrawn from matriculating,” the report said.
She agreed with his right to freedom of expression, but attempted to mitigate potential damage from Williams’ comments.
“Academic freedom is not absolute, however,” Berger-Sweeney said at the time. “The events of recent weeks have compelled us to ask important questions about the limits of such freedom and the responsibilities of faculty members, who hold special positions in our academic communities.”

City of Denver Unanimously Votes to Rename Columbus Park “La Raza Park”
There might come a time when nothing in the US is named after Christopher Columbus.
The Denver City Council unanimously voted to rename Columbus Park last week Monday, and now it will be named “La Raza Park.”
“La raza” is Spanish for “the race,” which has connotations with Latino identity politics. A Denver Post article tells us that the phrase “viva la raza” (long live the race) was the “rallying cry of the Chicano movement in the 1960s and ’70s.” The Chicano Movement encouraged Mexican ethnic and cultural solidarity with a particular emphasis on their indigenous heritage. The movement, however, rejected assimilation and thus the term “Mexican-American,” essentially branding themselves as the Hispanic version of the Black Power movement.
Councilwoman Amanda Sandoval claims that the unanimous vote was an act of officially naming a park that has “always” been unofficially called by its new name. “La raza is a word of unity and about celebrating community,” she said without a hint of irony.
The reason for officially renaming the park is about what you’d expect, namely because Christopher Columbus is irredeemably associated with colonialism and genocide and is thus not fit to be honored in any way, shape, or form.
Arturo Gonzalez, a retired professor, said that “Mexican Chicanos and Indigenous peoples have suffered genocide over the last 500 years. We live with that trauma. We continue to live with that trauma.”
Renaming parks, buildings, and schools that were previously named after so-called “problematic” or “white supremacist” historical figures is nothing new, of course, but the practice has accelerated over the past several months due to the hysteria following the George Floyd riots.
Big League Politics has covered many instances of this phenomenon. One of the most recent instances included a San Francisco school district renaming Abraham Lincoln High School because black lives apparently “didn’t matter” to him:
