FIRE defends Irami Osei-Frimpong as UGA investigates ‘White people may have to die’ post on Facebook

The Foundation for Individual Rights in Education (FIRE) has written a letter in support of Irami Osei-Frimpong, the University of Georgia PhD candidate who posted on Facebook a message stating that “some White people may have to die for Black communities to be made whole in this struggle to advance to freedom.”

The University of Georgia says it is “vigorously exploring all available legal options” against the teaching assistant who defends his statements, adding that “To pretend that’s not the case is ahistorical and dangerously naïve.”

At first administrators dismissed student complaints about Osei-Frimpong’s previous statements, claiming they were simply made “in his capacity as a private citizen on his personal social media accounts.”

“At this point, we are unaware of any allegation of racially hostile or discriminatory conduct in the course of his professional duties or any statements falling outside of First Amendment protections,” the university tweeted from its official account on Jan. 18.

In the past, Osei-Frimpong, who posts YouTube videos as “The Funky Academic,” has referred to white people as “autistic,” “sociopaths,” and “Chick fil-A employees.” In a recent Twitter post, Osei-Frimpong explained that “fighting White people is a skill,” ending with a quote from Dr. Bobby Wright in which he said, “Blacks kill Blacks because they have never been trained to kill Whites.”

In another tweet, Osei-Frimpong posted a picture of a guillotine with the caption “the French erect guillotines. They are not confused about their enemy.” On gender issues, Osei-Frimpong tweeted “Masculinity is a form of Whiteness,” and that “the aspiration for manhood reinforces White supremacy.”
