Preston Mitchum, an adjunct professor and research analyst at Georgetown Law, made the assertion this week that “all white people are racist” and “all men are sexist.”
“If you are black/brown and your activism and advocacy is heavily supported by white people, you’re likely doing it wrong. This woman just said to me, ‘stop undermining people who want to help.’ I cannot today,” the professor began a series of tweets on July 23. “Yes, ALL white people are racist. Yes, ALL men are sexist. Yes, ALL cis people are transphobic. We have to unpack that. That’s the work!”
Campus Reform asked the professor — who recently tweeted “I really, really, really, really, really, really hate cops” on July 15 — to expand on his worldview.
“What makes something racist, sexist, transphobic, homophobic, etc. is when ‘power’ and the ability to effectuate said power is added,” he said. “We must stop using this textbook definition of ‘racism’ because it doesn’t take into account real world experiences of those who are on the receiving end of racism: people of color.”
