Skip to comments.GOD AND MAN AT PENN (Ivy League professor on Zimmerman)
Posted on 07/16/2013 12:28:30 PM PDT by Hojczyk
It should come as no surprise that some of the very worst rants about George Zimmermans acquittal are coming from an Ivy League professor. The competition is stiff, but will be hard-pressed to keep up with Anthea Butler, an associate professor of religious studies at the University of Pennsylvania.
The Zimmerman verdict has caused Butler to conclude that God is a white racist god with a problem who is carrying a gun and stalking young black men.
There are conclusions Butler could have reached short of equating her caricature of Zimmerman with God. She could have settled for the less flamboyant view that there is no God. But flamboyance, one suspects, is what landed Butler the Ivy League gig and appearances on CNN and MSNBC.
Butler might also have concluded, years ago, that God is a black god with a problem who guns down young blacks. After all, there is a near-epidemic of shootings of young African-Americans by other African-Americans. But Butler didnt land that Ivy League gig and those cable news appearances by calling out blacks.
Speaking of the Ivy League gig, what do Butlers students think of her teaching? According to the Daily Caller, her student reviews are abysmal:
Pathetic, reports one unhappy student. This teacher is pathetically bad at her supposed job. Do not give this untalented instructor any more classes.
Another student describes her as a loudmouth idiot with crazy Don King hair and poorly substantiated and academically unsound opinions.
And that was before her latest epiphany.
Whatever her shortcomings as an academic, though, Butler is a marketing genius. Thus, shes actually a perfect fit for left-wing cable outlets and, regrettably, for the back bench of the Ivy League.

"We is new school you crazy ass cracka!"
Hey, Professor, if Trayvon had been a Godly young man, or even tried to be, we would not be having this discussion.
What kind of gun does God carry?

Anthea butler reminds me of that beast who was a witness for the prosecution : )
Anthea Butler is a person with a problem.
The wooly headed on has “written” a “book” about Sarah Palin
Im certain its a REAL hoot!!
allegedly it wont be available until AUGUST....2014
That could be Rachel Jeantel after she gets her free college degree in Africana Studies.
I hope it’s the same one I do!
I’ll feel COMPLETELY vindicated then!
Meritocracy be damned!!
We have quotas to make, and fast!!
Wow, a talking mushroom!
Not long after graduation, Ms. Jentel will get a cushy government job sucking even more wealth from the productive segment of society.
I think “crazy ass” is hyphenated...
“We is new school you crazy-ass cracka!”
IQ estimate based on appearance, 75 to 80. I am being generous.
My fault. I only got through Rachael's first lesson on the proper spellings of "Cracka" and "Nigga"...didn't quite make it to the lessons on hyphenations, punctuation and grammar. Looking forward to it though.
If you look closely at the ethical and financial situation of higher education in this country you see an edifice that is full of cracks and will not be able to support such worthless detritus as this ill educated black bigot and the black “MiddleClass” will less than 1/5 as large after the forthcoming economic collapse, GUARANTEED!
