Vitriol over Queen Elizabeth II shows many left-wingers just hate white people | Washington Examiner

Well would you look at this..................
It's been an eventful month in race relations. First, there was the latest hate crime hoax at Brigham Young University, which all evidence suggests was concocted by a player desirous of attention. Then, there were the utterly despicable comments by two American professors about Queen Elizabeth II's death.
The professors, both black, took to social media to disparage Queen Elizabeth II. Uju Anya, an associate professor at Carnegie Mellon University, displayed her bigotry by wishing the queen suffered an excruciatingly painful death in a tweet on Sept. 8. This was followed by a tweet from Zoe Samudzi, a Zimbabwean American who teaches photography at the Rhode Island School of Design. Samudzi tweeted that she would "dance on the graves of every member of the royal family."
Neither professor suffered any consequences — a privilege that most likely would not have been afforded if the professors were white and the deceased monarch black.
Their sentiments on the queen were shared by many on the Left. Others commented that the queen was an example of white supremacy, white privilege, or whatever concocted ism, phobia, or other social justice, victimization suffix you'd like to pick out of the dictionary. Such people have such a warped sense of reality that they will readily demonize anyone of European heritage who was connected to colonialism or imperialism yet always ignore the hundreds, if not thousands, of years of identical acts committed by people of African, Middle Eastern, Native American, and Asian heritage in building empires, oppressing other races, and colonizing faraway places.
Their flimsy worldview depends on the idea that history began in 1492 and that the first group of people ever to come along and develop a conscience about such activities — namely, Europeans — are the only ones who should ever be held accountable for it.
No one has to like Queen Elizabeth II. Those professors have every right to their low opinion of her. But it is disingenuous to bemoan Queen Elizabeth's role in Nigeria's history, as Anya did, but remain deafeningly silent on the brutal empires of Nigeria's past — or any of the vast number of empires that pillaged, raped, murdered, and enslaved other Africans in that continent's history.
Given the indoctrination resulting from this revisionist history, it's time to acknowledge such people suffer from the same bigotry they claim to be against. Many of them just hate white people, and they do so for no other reason than historical events that today's white people had nothing to do with. Once the masses realize this, it will hopefully discredit much of the Left's agendas and platforms.
