Former FBI most wanted list writer will teach a Black Lives Matter program at a US institution.
Students at Princeton University can take a “Black Lives Matter” program that includes readings by a Black liberation leader who was formerly on the FBI’s Most Wanted List.
Princeton University in the United States has been criticized over plans to offer students a course that includes readings by Angela Davis, a former member of the Black Panther Party. Ms Davis was a revolutionary hero of the Black liberation movement in the United States in the 1970s, and she ran for Vice President twice, both times unsuccessfully. The goal of the new divisive course is to look into the “historical roots and growth of the Black Lives Matter social movement.”
The Princeton course is “committed to resisting, uncovering, and eliminating history of state-sanctioned violence against Black and Brown bodies,” according to its description.
The description went on to say, “The course strives to record the forms of dispossession that Black Americans suffer and offers a critical assessment of the prison industrial complex, police brutality, urban poverty, and white supremacy in the United States.”
Professor Hanna Garth, who taught the class, said she was “broadly interested in the manner in which people strive to resist structural violence.”
Her website reads, “All of my research, teaching, and mentoring is built on my commitment to feminist approaches and critical race theory.”
Politicians in the United States have criticized the course, with some advocating for a ban on the teaching of critical race theory.
“Some of this is, I believe, quite toxic,” Florida Governor Ron DeSantis stated.
“I believe it will lead to a lot of schisms.
I believe it will lead people to consider themselves members of a particular race based on their skin color rather than their character, hard work, and goals in life.”
It comes after Cori Bush, a Democratic BLM organizer, was forced to defend spending $70,000 on personal security despite pushing for a reduction in US police expenditure.
The Black Lives Matter activist has been questioned in recent days when it was discovered that she had spent $70,000 on her personal security detail.
During a recent interview with CBS host Vladimir Duthiers, Bush was asked to respond to criticism.
“Would they rather I died?” Bush responded with a yes.
“Would you rather I died?
“Is it what you’re looking for?… Do you want to witness my demise?
“Because,” says the narrator, “Brinkwire Summary News.”
