Skip to comments.Irate Ivy League professor calls God Ďa white racist godí after Zimmerman verdict
Posted on 07/16/2013 2:38:01 PM PDT by SeekAndFind
In light of a Florida jury verdict finding George Zimmerman not guilty, a professor at an Ivy League university has now concluded that God is a white racist god with a problem who is carrying a gun and stalking young black men.
The fulmination is part of an epic blog rant by Anthea Butler, an associate professor of religious studies at the University of Pennsylvania and a frequent guest at media outlets including MSNBC and CNN.
In the diatribe, Butler cites a book she first read as a seminary student called Is God a White Racist? by William R. Jones. She found the book surprising then, but says she understands it now, particularly as she contemplates the death of Trayvon Martin, who died on February 26, 2012.
God aint good all of the time, Butler declares. In fact, sometimes, God is not for us. As a black woman in an [sic] nation that has taken too many pains to remind me that I am not a white man, and am not capable of taking care of my reproductive rights, or my voting rights, I know that this American god aint my god.
Butler is particularly upset at what she views as the conservative Christian conception of the Creator.
Whatever makes them protected, safe, and secure, is worth it at the expense of the black and brown people they fear, she rages. Their god is the god that wants to erase race.
Butler also complains about the Three-Fifths Compromise, which essentially treated slaves as three-fifths of a person, and which was part of the Constitution when it was originally ratified in 1789.
In 1865, almost 150 years ago, the Thirteenth Amendment abolished slavery, thus nullifying the notorious compromise.
Religious conservatism of the 21st century is in bed with the prison industrial complex, the Koch brothers, the NRAall while proclaiming that they are pro-life, Butler also claims. They are anything but. They are the ones who thought that what George Zimmerman did was right.
Like to be a fly on the wall for THAT encounter on the day he Assumes Room Temperature
Just like the undisciplined children that they are, the left becomes unhinged when they don’t get what they want.
I just love unhinged lefties. They are sooooo entertaining. Unfortunately she is a government employee so somehow I’m paying part of her salary and retirement.
Well, not sure how many guys are going to make it to heaven that attacked or killed people for Trayvon.
Since in popular mythology, God created all people, it is faulty logic to assume or announce that God is a white racist.
These drones have gone completely off the rails.
Another angry negro. Not news.
So this racist God made Trayvon jump up out of the bushes and sucker-punch Zimmerman in the face??
It sure seems odd the way absolute morons get to be president of the US and an Ivy League Professor.
Wait a second, they are both dark skinned. Affirmative action is the reason.
U Penn is Ivy League!?! Who knew?
Just another Angry Black Woman...
If I were paying tuition at U. Penn, I would be demanding a refund just about now.
No. God is a just God and despises evil, irregardless of race. Maybe black people as a whole just seem to engage in evil more often and don’t like to see it called for what it is. At some point it just cant be blamed on environmental or economic causes given all factors given. Some things are just obvious. Thank heavens for those that are good and not evil.
Fed Up FReeper calls Ivy League Professor a 'black racist cow' After Predictable Post-Zimmerman Rant
These people is tetched in the haid.
The detachment from reality is amazing. Why can’t someone prominent have the balls to say, “Enough with this BS about black boys being stalked and killed by whites. Do yourself of favor and look at some statistics instead of feeling sorry for yourself and making excuses for the conditions black people create for themselves. Your black boys are doing most of the killing in America, and that includes killing whites at forty times the rate that whites kill blacks. And I don’t care if that truth offends you.”
Aslan is not a tame lion.
The Left is becoming more and more unglued over this verdict.
With the increasingly reckless statements that are being made, I’m beginning to wonder if this is the tipping point and we just don’t know it yet.
God aint good all the timeDangerously close to blasphemy against the Holy Spirit; accusing the works of God of being evil. (Never mind a Ph.D speaking in a vulgar manner.)
Poison Ivy League, my friend. Just like Princeton, Rutgers, Harvard, Yale, and MIT. Loaded with reds, socialists, hate-filled Black Studies professors, reparationists like Ogletree, Cone, etc.,
There used to be a time when you went to college to learn, to become a more educated and better person. Today it is to be haranged, denigrated if you are white, turned into a mindless, Marxist Obama Zombie, and a Democrat Party drone.
The mind is a terrible thing to waste, but you are paying for that opportunity, folks.
I find that community colleges are usually more patriotic, my practical in their education programs/degrees, and don’t turn you minds to marxist mush (except in California where the only real requirement to teach in them is to be a mindless marxist/irredentist hatemonger/teacher).
As for law schools, stamp many of them, Made in Moscow.
The ACLU will be all over him for bringing discussions of God into the classroom.
They can’t get in at an Ivy League, so they leak down to Penn.
That would be everyone except you.
Ivy is eight schools: Brown, Columbia, Cornell, Dartmouth College, Harvard, Princeton, Penn, and Yale.
How did this mental midget get a professorship
Founded by Benjamin Franklin.
RE: How did this mental midget get a professorship
Same way Elizabeth Warren (Fauxcahontas) got hers at Harvard.
But at least, she has real ethnic creds compared to Warren.
Again the modern misconception of the 3/5s clause. It was written as a counter to the slave holding states from getting congressional representation based upon total population, including those who were held in slavery and thus could not vote. It reduced the power in Congress of the slave states and thus increased the power of the anti-slavery/non-slave holding states. It was the start, along with the restrictions on importing slaves from outside the US that began around 1800.
Thus women teaches at a College? She is insane. How does this happen in America?
Penn is Ivy League. It was a wonderful institution that supported Christians and Jews for centuries from its founding by Benjamin Franklin in 1740 through the 1970s; and even since the secularist revolution in academia, is still a leader in various non-ideological fields like medicine (both human and veterinary), engineering, business management, architecture, and other fields.
Deal with it.
The “Ivy League” schools all began as private schools of theology.
(not a shred of it left)
You’re right about Rutgers not being an Ivy League school though they act that way. Still loaded with reds in the law school and H. Bruce Franklin in the English Dept., among others.
Brown Un. a once great school turned PC cesspool, as has Brandeis (Have relatives who attended or taught at them).
Columbia Un. - Subversion Central since the old days of Corliss Lamont (CPUSA), now Rashid Khalili, and Kathy Boudin (Weather Underground killer), among many others.
Cornell: gave us the pro-Hanoi Lobby out of McT. Kahin’s Southeast Asia/Indochina studies program
Dartmouth - significant leftist presence there
Penn - had the wacko conspiracy monger and leftist Ed Hermann (spelling?).
MIT: Noam Chomsky, among other marxists. Don’t believe the “he’s an anarchist” crap. Just a diversion ploy. His read record goes back to at least 1970 and CONAME, a Socialist Workers Party anti-Israel front which I exposed in a major investigative piece in the Jewish Week, (DC), June 10, 1970.
So we can have both: Ivy League Schools and Poison Ivy League schools (the latter being more inclusive).
I have never seen so many marxists, communists, racists, and academic frauds in our university/college system as there are today. Athea Butler is just another example of the degree of marxist and racist penetration and insanity that exists in academia today.
PS: Nice hair.
If racial unrest follows Zimmerman jury decision, blame it on Activist Obama

This is reference to an editorial run in Canada Free Press. The Canadians got it right.! Too bad half of the so called conservatives talk show hosts Ive been listening to cant seem to be willing to connect the dots to what a heavy hand his imperious highness played in this example of socialist justice meted out to serve the policies of the state . Turning this into a show trial replete with wall to wall tv coverage.
.For certain since the not guilty verdict has been rendered the facts of this case are still being concealed by the media such as pictures of both side by side they look like cousins. The mixed area that Zimmerman was a “watch captain” in was struggling with single and groups of young blacks on the prowl.,In some instances armed, preying on homeowners.in his area..That area wasn’t even examinined because it wouldn’t fit their agenda.. Which if done ,if true journalisim existed, because that might explain his action of surveilance . In many watch areas that’s done frequently when the subject disappears from view.
Even after learning the shooter was a staunch Obama supporter, not Jewish, and a very dark skinned “hispanic” Obama did nothing to curtail the hyperbole or tone down his edict creating this as a racist episode. The socialists controlling the media propaganda machine oblidged.. They began claiming the neighborhood watch captain was a white hispanic .or used a picture of a 12 year old Martin instead of the 6 foot 165 pound person he was vs the smaller 140 pound lttle fatty neighborhood watch captain. Worse yet allowed his US Attorney General to use questionable activities to promote a show trial and ignored using a threat of prosecution to black militant groups threatening the watch captains life.
Meanwhile attacks by black groups on selected happless white victims which wind in their death get ignored by the mainline socialist messengers MSM service and black on black killings many of the age of the so called victim is likewise same-o same-o.
Do not confuse todays politicians and their ahearants in the press and academia as followers of “Liberalism”. . These are die hard God denying I’m right you’re wrong socialists incapable of independent thinking running todays media.. Devising political campaigns of lies and manipulated inflamatory languange disguised as “news or reliable information” designed to destroy any opponent or group to what is edicted by their leader. You must wind up goose-stepping in unison protecting the collective otherwise we will through the use of government step on you and squash you like some insect..
That will continue until they’re challanged and dumped into the garbage where they belong.
I did. Perhaps you were thinking of PSU?
UPenn is a private school...
Jeremiah Wright, Louis Farrakhan and Michael Pfleger, please pick up the white courtesy phones nearest you.
“white courtesy phone” - THAT’S RACIST!
How low do these Ivy League schools have to stoop to fill their “diversity” quotas? This woman is a moron. She “ain’t” got the good sense that that “racist, white god” gave a cantaloupe.
