Princeton black studies professor Imani Perry said she's reporting me to the police for "harassment"
wordpress ^ | July 23, 2013 | Dan from Squirrel Hill

Posted on 07/23/2013 2:32:15 AM PDT by grundle

Dr. Imani Perry, Princeton professor, it’s YOUR fault that your sons cried at the George Zimmerman verdict

Update: I sent an email to Dr. Perry with the link to this blog entry, and I told her, “I welcome you to show this to your students and anyone else whom you think might like to read it and comment on it.”

Dr. Perry wrote back to me and said, “I will be reporting you to the police for harassment.”

 

Princeton professor Dr. Imani Perry recently wrote:

“My two sons, bright, creative and kind African American boys, aged 7 and 9, both wept when they heard that George Zimmerman had been acquitted. They were afraid he, or others like him, might come for them next.”

“I did not anticipate that their young lives would be as much defined by the tragedies of the murder and execution of Trayvon Martin and Troy Davis, as by the historic era of the first African American president. They already know the brutal truth of racial inequality, and that they are called to wage the battle against it, just as their forefathers and mothers.”

“I believe that if children are guided honestly through the reality of the world in which they live, it will help them build resilience.”

“I am training my sons to develop resilience in the face of the racial injustice.”

Dr. Perry, why would your sons worry that Zimmerman might “come for them next”?

Is it because they are planning to break Zimmerman’s nose, give him two black eyes, and smash his head against the concrete?

Or, is it because you lied to them, and falsely told them that Zimmerman “murdered” and “executed” Trayvon Martin?

If you believe that children should be “guided honestly through the reality of the world,” then why did you teach your own children that Martin was “murdered” and “executed,” when the medical evidence and witnesses called by the prosecution showed that Martin had violently assaulted Zimmerman, and that Zimmerman killed Martin in self defense?

Dr. Perry, did you teach your children about Roderick Scott? Scott is a black man in Florida who, in 2009, shot and killed an unarmed white teenager. A jury found Scott to be not guilty of murder because Scott had killed the teen in self defense.

Scott was found not guilty for the same reason that Zimmerman was found not guilty. Both killings were done in self defense. But while you taught your children that the Zimmerman verdict was proof of racism, I very much doubt that you told them anything at all about the Scott verdict.

If you want your sons to have “resilience in the face of the racial injustice,” then why did you scare them by falsely telling them that the Zimmerman verdict was the result of racism, instead of reassuring them by truthfully telling them what pretty much every legal scholar who has closely followed the case has said – that the verdict was the result of the fact that Zimmerman acted in self defense?

Dr. Perry, did you teach your sons that a year before Zimmerman killed Martin, Zimmerman had spoken out against the son of a white police lieutenant who had violently beaten a black homeless man? I’m guessing that you did not tell your sons about this, because it contradicts your bogus claim that Zimmerman is a racist.

Did you teach your sons that before Zimmerman killed Martin, Zimmerman had tutored black children for free? I’m guessing that you did not.

Did you tell your sons that before Martin was killed, a search of his backpack at his school showed it to contain a dozen pieces of women’s jewelry, including silver wedding rings, and earrings with diamonds, as well as a screwdriver, which is often used as a burglary tool? I doubt you told them this, because it gives credibility to Zimmerman’s claim on the 911 call that Martin was acting suspiciously. Martin may have been casing houses when Zimmerman saw him.

Did you tell your sons that Martin’s autopsy showed traces of marijuana in his system? I doubt you told them this, because it verifies Zimmerman’s claim on the 911 call that Martin was acting like he was on drugs.

In the real world, Martin was a burglar, and he used illegal drugs, and it’s quite possible that he was casing houses when Zimmerman observed him.

Dr. Perry, since you want your sons to know “the brutal truth” and to be “guided honestly through the reality of the world,” I was wondering if you have ever told them that 93% of black murder victims are murdered by other blacks?

Dr. Perry, your sons did not cry because of the Zimmerman verdict. Instead, they cried because you taught them to see racism where it does not exist. You taught them to have sympathy for a violent teenage thug who brutally beat a man’s head against the concrete. It’s your fault that your sons cried. It’s not George Zimmerman’s fault. It’s not the jury’s fault. It’s YOUR fault.

Dr. Perry, I hope that for your sons’ own happiness, when they go to college, they get degrees in subjects such as math, engineering, computer programming, physics, chemistry, astronomy, geology, medicine, music, art, and literature, and avoid at all costs anything to do with “African American studies,” a subject which seems intent on making people feel like helpless victims, instead of empowered, intelligent human beings.

Update: I sent an email to Dr. Perry with the link to this blog entry, and I told her, “I welcome you to show this to your students and anyone else whom you think might like to read it and comment on it.”

Dr. Perry wrote back to me and said, “I will be reporting you to the police for harassment.”

I’d forward that to the police department and ask if they got that report. Bet they didn’t.

The victim class celebrated the jury verdict. Sharpton/Jackson celebrated the death so they could get media attention.

Part black/Hispanic, registered Democrat, raised with black children, mentored and tutored black children, voted for Obama?

All tossed aside.

The symbolism of the ‘white Hispanic’ as stalker and murderer was more important than the reality of destroying a man’s life who has spent decades living color blind.

Now today we see George, again not following the ‘orders’ to let firemen and police take all action, hopping out and helping to rescue a family.

And what of the character of his accusers who profited financially from tragedy and sew the seeds of hate in our country? What lives have they saved? None. But we know of several dead in murderous retaliation for the false narrative they perpetuated.

Unless there are threats contained in a SINGLE response to a public article, there is no harassment, period.

She can ‘report’ all she wants. She should be ‘reported’ for incitement to hate and for abuse of minor children.

Iwouldn’t worry about it.

Given the nature of race relations these days, coupled with police stupidity, you can expect one of two eventualities:

1. Everyone will have a good, hearty laugh at the fact that such a moron as this can get a position at Princeton - once one of America’s great institutions of higher learning, and now the punchline to a joke; or

2. A SWAT team will break down the neighbors’ door in the dead of night and shoot their dog.

Either way, you’ll be fine.

Thanks. And I agree with you. I don’t see any threat or harm to anyone. And yes, it does show the mindset that it takes to become an Ivy League professor - especially in the black studies department.

I wouldn’t even know which police department to call - hers or mine. But yeah - I seriously doubt she called. But if I do get prosecuted, I’ll just ask the ACLU for free defense.

The intellectual stupidity that gushes forth out of far too many of the Ivy League faculty is truly amazing.
This Imani Perry bonehead can not defend her brain farts in the arena of ideas and must resort to "reporting" those who challenge her in the best traditions of classic education ... NOT.
Liberalism ruins everything it gains control of.
Princeton is demeaned by an affirmative action hiree like Perry.
Parents are paying good money to have their children "taught" by an ignoramus like this?

Sounds like the type who would demand police “do their job” and put this guy in jail.

” They already know the brutal truth of racial inequality,...”
I’m sure YOU taught them all about that, doctor.

Great commentary and questions. A truthful examination of the issue if she wished her sons to be 'guided honestly through the reality of the world'.

Obviously, the truth hurts 'Dr.' Perry. She can't handle the truth.

She can now explain to her Children that this is in a small way how Nichole Brown's and Ron Goldman's Parents felt when OJ was acquitted.

Another race-baiter outing herself. She could have explained how GZ was acquitted and therefore innocent of the crime he was accused of, and that those kids had nothing to worry about. Instead, I can see her telling those kids, “BEWARE of WHITEY!”

To hell with her and all the racists out there.

Depends on the cop. It might get you arrested.

Single non threatening response is the key.

If she complains to the cops they need to ntfy sender of the email and inform them “no more unwanted emails” as that would be harassment.
On the other hand and only a suggestion, 100’s of other single individual emails from 100’s of others may have a nice affect.

What is more disturbing are the uniformly uninformed but well written comments at the site where the Professor made her original comment.
I would have commented there but I feel that they would not have protected my email address.

What a fool. This person teaches young people too. :( I wonder what she does when a student disagrees with her. I suppose the people who take her classes are inclined to agree with her. What is she teaching these students? She’s teaching them it’s her way or insults and I call the police. Pathetic.

“The intellectual stupidity that gushes forth out of far too many of the Ivy League faculty is truly amazing. “

People need to realize that faculty of these institutions, like most other universities, aren't hired because they are the smartest people on the planet. There is no objective testing involved, and they don't look at ACT or SAT scores like they do for admission as a student. People get hired as faculty at these institutions for a variety of reasons, including a proven capacity to bring in grant money, how much you've published, or whether or not you fit a specific demographic that the university wants to add to their diversity profile.

None of the above define a person as ‘the brightest’, or most creative, etc.

Probably in her thought(that is if she is capable of critical thinking) process the “T” in Booker T. Washington stand for Uncle Tom. She probably never hear “Green Onions” by Booker T and the MG’s either.
