It has come out that Nkosi Thandiwe, a black man who went on a killing spree in 2011, was motivated by hatred of white people. He seems especially to have been influenced by anti-white cultural anthropology courses. The Atlanta Journal Constitution reports:
“During his testimony Wednesday, Thandiwe suggested that his reason for even purchasing the gun he used in the shootings was to enforce beliefs he’d developed about white people during his later years as an anthropology major at the University of West Georgia.”
“I was trying to prove a point that Europeans had colonized the world, and as a result of that, we see a lot of evil today,” he said. “In terms of slavery, it was something that needed to be answered for. I was trying to spread the message of making white people mend.”
Will there be a national conversation about this tragedy? Will Eric Holder call for another “conversation about race”?
