I have a question about this. What if a white teaching assistant said some Blacks may have to die? Or some Hispanics may need to die.? Or if one said that some Muslims may need to die? Would they have been expelled ?
In a heartbeat. There were other issues, such as the fact that he hid his attendance at the University of Chicago from his application for admissions and a charge of trespassing.
He faces a university judiciary panel that found that despite all of the lies and his controversial statement about whites dying, he could remain at the university.
University of Georgia (UGA) TA and graduate student, Irami Osei-Frimpong, was cleared by the panel on Tuesday after facing expulsion over allegations that he had failed to list his previous attendance the University of Chicago, as well as that he had purposefully omitted a 2011 trespassing arrest from his admissions application, according to Athens Banner-Herald.
Osei-Frimpong’s statements included the claim that “some white people may have to die” in order to achieve racial justice, and that “fighting white people is a skill” which should be practiced, adding that this was one of the reasons why he is in favor of “integrated schools,” among other comments.
The graduate student said that he believed the allegations against him were a veiled attempt to remove him from the university due to his controversial comments having been made public. Osei-Frimpong had also waived his federal privacy rights, which allowed for public access to the hearing, giving him an audience to listen while he defended himself against the allegations.
