University professor says God is a white racist

While those on the left look to place blame for George Zimmerman’s acquittal in the death of Trayvon Martin, a radical professor said it’s because God is a white racist.

In an editorial published on Sunday, Anthea Butler, a religious professor at the University of Pennsylvania, proclaimed God is “a white racist god with a problem.”

“God ain’t good all of the time. In fact, sometimes, God is not for us. As a black woman in an nation that has taken too many pains to remind me that I am not a white man, and am not capable of taking care of my reproductive rights, or my voting rights, I know that this American god ain’t my god. As a matter of fact, I think he’s a white racist god with a problem. More importantly, he is carrying a gun and stalking young black men.”

Butler, who accused Walmart of being sharecroppers and slave owners earlier this year, acts like the country is still in 1950s Mississippi when she said “most good conservative Christians in America think… whatever makes them protected, safe, and secure, is worth it at the expense of the black and brown people they fear.”

“Their god is the god that wants to erase race, make everyone act ‘properly’ and respect, as the president said, ‘a nation of laws’; laws that they made to crush those they consider inferior,” she continued.

Never mind that a black man, President Barack Obama, is charged with the execution of the law, and another black man, Attorney General Eric Holder, heads up the federal department responsible for the enforcement of the law.

Nonetheless, Butler asks: “Is God the old white male racist looking down from white heaven, ready to bless me if I just believe the white men like Rick Perry who say the Zimmerman case has nothing to do with race?”

Joining Texas Gov. Rick Perry in that opinion just happens to be the Federal Bureau of Investigations — which falls under Eric Holder. After an extensive investigation of the Trayvon Martin shooting in June 2012, the FBI concluded that there was no evidence to support Zimmerman acted out of racial hatred.

In drawing to a close, Butler is as divisive as she is politically expedient:

“As a historian of American and African-American religion, I know that the Trayvon Martin moment is just one moment in a history of racism in America that, in large part, has its underpinnings in Christianity and its history.”

Speaking of God, may He bless those with the misfortune of being students in her classroom.

That’s ok, God got kicked out of the Democrat Party at their last convention, probably because He was a racist.

Found at same link as this story:

MSNBC hosts agree: Only whites can be racist

http://www.bizpacreview.com/2013/07/13/msnbc-hosts-agree-only-whites-can-be-racist-79620

In an apparent nod to a network colleague’s recent claim that only whites can be racist, an MSNBC legal analyst opined that the term, “creepy-ass cracker,” was merely a “light-hearted” manner in which to describe someone.

Lisa Bloom appeared on MSNBC Friday to analyze the George Zimmerman case, which is now in the hands of the jury. The phrase, “creepy-ass cracker,” was allegedly used by the victim, Trayvon Martin, to describe Zimmerman in a telephone conversation with one of the prosecution’s star witnesses on the night Martin was shot, according to Mediaite.

“I personally think it’s almost funny,” Bloom said. “I think that’s the kind of way you talk and get a smile. ‘Look at this creepy-ass cracker.’ It’s kind of an amusing way of describing somebody. The word, ‘creepy,’ is really the operative part of that word, that he was concerned. This guy is creepy, but in a little light-hearted way.”

Bloom contrasted that comment with Zimmerman’s alleged description of Martin as a “f**king punk” and an “a-hole,” saying those terms are “not in the least bit funny.”

Bloom must have been tuned into her network in early April, when “Hardball” host Chris Matthews defined racism as “the belief that one race – whites – should rule all others.”

I figured as much since some Sunday School teacher told us that God just left black people in the oven a little bit too long.

Here are comments from her students:(no spelling corrections or editing)

1. its an embarassment to the RS department that this loudmouth idiot with crazy Don King hair is the head chair. Worst Professor ive ever known or heard of. her opinions are poorly substantiated and academically unsound to say the least mostly due to her afrocentric presuppositional bias which makes her narrow-minded.Avoid her at all cost!

2. She is an awful teacher who thinks that she knows everything when half of the time she is making mistakes in the names of the things she is trying to teach! I’m a student and even I can see her mistakes! She takes herself way too seriously, and her TAs are awful! Her and her TAs are very harsh graders, beware!

3. Pathetic. This teacher is pathetically bad at her supposed job. Do not give this untalented instructor any more classes. Bad.

School: University of Pennsylvania
Location: Philadelphia, PA
Department: Religion

She got a 1.7 rating on a scale of 1-5 on Overall Quality

“God ain’t good all of the time.....
= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = =
Not that that is the kind of English I would expect from an Ivy League University Department Head.

Also, how can you head the ‘Religious Department’ and NOT believe in God?

If she ‘believes’ in God she is surely mocking Him.

She is a member of that ‘new religious’ sect that has Pelosi and Biden and ‘the Kennedys’ etal as sacrament accepting Catholics, apparently the Hierarchy of the Church would rather have ‘Friends’ in High Places, than those that ‘follow the teachings’.

Is she a member of the “Whatz Happenin’ Now” church?

Actually, Anthea comes from the Greek word ánthos, which means "blossom" or "flower." I have a wonderful friend named Anthea. who is 100 times smarter than that idiot "professor."

OK, I am going to be blunt here. If whites wanted to rule the world, we would. The whites in America would have sided with Germany in WWII, and that would have been that. Period.

The reality is that we want a world where people are judged by the content of their character, not the color of their skin. Apparently that is going to be denied us.

What follows will not be pretty.
