Rutgers Prof Doubles Down; Tells Trumpsters 'FU!'

Following are two important stories from our friends at Save Jersey  (reprinted with permission)
By Matt Rooney
Rutgers Associate Professor Brittney Cooper made some news this week after tweeting on Tuesday that white people want to end the COVID-19 shutdown because the virus is disproportionately killed black Americans. She also added ‘fuck Trump supporters’ for good measure in her 7 tweet-long tirade. Nice lady!
She also apparently loves the limelight. On Thursday? Cooper – who is a six figure employee at the publicly-subsidized New Jersey college – began tweeting again, responding to critics of her unhinged tweets by falling back on every Leftist academic’s favorite defense: “I have tenure.”
“Just know a couple of things: 1.) I report threats to law enforcement and have had committed law enforcement support for many years now. 2.) I have tenure,” said Cooper. “Rutgers won’t be firing me for tweets. That is all.”
Cooper also doubled down on her original commentary:
NEW BRUNSWICK, N.J. – A Rutgers professor went on an uhinged Twitter tirade on Tuesday, surmising that a growing movement to end restrictive COVID-19 lockdown measures across the country is fueled by white people who either don’t care if black people succumb to the virus or even because they disproportionately do.
“I feel like most Black people are clear that this utterly absurd to push to re-open the country is all about a gross necropolitical calculation that it is Black people who are dying disproportionately from COVID,” declared Brittney Cooper, an associate profess of ‘Africana Studies’ and ‘Women’s and Gender Studies.
Cooper’s salary was $112,254 as of December 2019.
“Not only do white conservatives not care about Black life,” Cooper continued, “but my most cynical negative read of the white supremacists among them is that they welcome this massive winnowing of Black folks in order to slow demographic shifts and shore up political power.”
“Fuck each and every Trump supporter. You all absolutely did this. You are to blame,” Cooper added near the end of her 7-tweet rant…

20.3% of New Jersey COVID-19 deaths (as of Tuesday) were black. Approximately 13-14% of the state’s total population is black.
52% of victim have been white.
According to Wikipedia, “necropolitics” is the use of social and political power to dictate how some people may live and how some must die.”
