‘Khadijah’ Lynch, a junior and an Undergraduate Department Representative in the African and Afro-American Studies Department at Brandeis, tweeted, “I have no sympathy for the NYPD officers who were murdered today.”
TPNN (h/t Grant B) The next day, she went even further with her vile statements by tweeting, “lmao, all i just really dont have sympathy for the cops who were shot. i hate this racist fucking country.” (Gee, I wonder if she is on scholarship at Brandeis?)
During an interview with a Brandeis student newspaper, The Justice , in September, Lynch revealed just how radical her views are in regards to race relations.
The very essence of the United States relies on the social implications of race in which black bodies are deemed as sub-human with little to no access of the rights that are so called applicable to every American citizen. The American police forces of today descend from a legacy of slave captives and overseers whose job was to protect the property (enslaved black bodies) of rich, slave owning capitalists. We must understand that we are not that far removed from this country’s legacy of slavery and that most of our laws are shaped to uphold a system of white supremacy. The Mike Brown case is only a reflection, a repeat and a reminder that this nation rests on the brutality and criminalization of black people and other non-whites.
Truth Revolt reports that Lynch is in a student leadership role at Brandeis in which she advises younger students. When they reached out to Lynch to ask if she believed the officers deserved to die, she responded, “Does matter what i believe? Its my own personal opinion which I as a private citizen which do not want publicized in any form and if you do not abide my wishes i constitute your disregard as slander.”
She also called for an intifada which is Arabic for violent uprising or resistance.
There were more highly inflammatory, hate-filled tweets from Lynch that Truth Revolt captured before she hid her Twitter profile.
Since her statements were made public, the university moved quickly and announced on Sunday that Lynch had resigned from her student leadership position.
This is not the first time Brandeis University has made the news in negative fashion. Earlier this year, the university made headlines when they revoked the planned honorary degree that was to be bestowed on Ayaan Hirsi Ali, a women’s rights advocate and outspoken critic of Islam. The university was accused of bowing to Ali’s critics who simply wanted to silence her.
