Texas A&M President Michael Young issued a statement Wednesday addressing Professor Tommy Curry's "disturbing" comments justifying "killing white people."
In a recently uncovered interview from 2012, titled "Dr. Tommy Curry on killing whites," Curry said many black people like Nat Turner and Robert F. Williams "thought about killing white people as self-defense" and this "tradition" is still very "relevant."
"When we have this conversation about violence, or killing white people, it has to be looked at in the context of historical turn," he says. "And the fact that we've had no one address, like how relevant and how solidified this kind of tradition is, for black people saying look, in order to be equal, in order to be liberated, some white people may have to die."
Curry made other similar disturbing comments which were highlighted by The American Conservative.
Texas A&M President Young did not directly name Curry in his statement, but said he found comments "by one of our professors" to be "disturbing" and "in stark contrast to Aggie core values."
What he did not do was say Curry would be fired. Instead, he said: "As we know, the First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution protects the rights of others to offer their personal views, no matter how reprehensible those views may be."
The following statement was released Wednesday evening from President Young:I can't imagine if a white professor was found searching for justifications to kill black people in "self-defense" the school would be sitting around reminding people of the existence of the First Amendment, which is not the issue here.
If your "core values" are standing "against the advocacy of violence, hate, and killing," then you need to fire Professor Curry immediately, apologize for having hired him in the first place, and perform an audit to see which other professors on your staff hold similar views.
