University of Pennsylvania Religious Studies Professor Anthea Butler (Religious Studies, yet) says Republican Presidential candidate Dr Ben Carson is a coon.
Carson committed the crime of saying some things should be left to the people involved with the things to decide. On the recent controversy over the Confederate flag, he said,
Swastikas are a symbol of hate for some people too…and yet they still exist in our museums and places like that,” Carson said during an event with Richard Petty in North Carolina last Monday. “If it’s a majority of people in that area who want it to fly, I certainly wouldn’t take it down.
In response to which Butler tweeted
If only there was a “coon of the year” award…
Her boss and the University condone Butler’s racist behavior. UPenn’s Religious Studies Chairman, Professor Justin McDaniel, defended her:
She is a valued colleague and faculty member
If President Barack Obama had an uncle, would he look like Carson? Oh, wait–this is the Left. Obama is carefully silent on this one.
