Cambridge Rewards Academic Who Said 'White Lives Don't Matter' With Full Professorship

Cambridge University academic Priyamvada Gopal revealed Thursday that she was promoted to a full professorship after receiving backlash for stating that "White Lives Don't Matter."

Gopal this morning announced on Twitter that she's "delighted" to reveal that "last night Cambridge promoted me to a full Professorship."

Gopal said Monday on Twitter: "I'll say it again. White Lives Don't Matter. As white lives."

"Abolish whiteness," Gopal said in a follow-up tweet.

Not surprisingly, Gopal received a lot of pushback and a petition was signed by over 19,000 people demanding she be fired.

Nonetheless, Cambridge responded with a statement defending their academics' "right" to express their "lawful opinions" which others "might find controversial."

Though Cambridge rushed to defend Gopal's right to say "White Lives Don't Matter," last year they rushed to sack academic Noah Carl for conducting "problematic" research criticizing incest and studying the relationship between immigrants' nation of origin and their crime rates.

Gopal's treatment also stands in stark contrast with that of Jake Hepple, who on Monday flew a "White Lives Matter" banner over a soccer match in the UK with no apologies.

Hepple and his girlfriend were both fired from their jobs and two GoFundMe campaigns set up to help them were shut down for "racism."

Saying "white lives don't matter" gets you a promotion in the UK but saying "white lives matter" gets you fired from your job and marked as a pariah and yet according to the media's narratives the UK is a "white supremacist" country.

Is this what they call "systemic racism"?
