Tweet of the Day: Racist Rutgers prof explains what REALLY motivated the Brexit vote
Brittney Cooper

Rutgers Prof. Brittney Cooper, whose past antics include declaring that Christian conservatives worship an “a**hole” God and a “white supremacist Jesus,” is back in the headlines. This time Cooper, who teaches Women’s and Gender Studies and Africana Studies, explains via Twitter what really motivated the citizens of Britain to vote to leave the European Union.

If you can’t guess what she believes prompted the vote, I’ll give you two hints: (1) It’s the prime mover behind every action we whites take. (2) It is a 6-letter word that starts with r and ends with m.

Here’s the tweet:

And here’s another one that not only carries the Brexit hashtag but uses black eye dialect to deliver its racist payload:

So every citizen of Britain is white! Who knew? According to demographers, the fastest-growing demographic in the UK is Muslims. Blacks make up a smaller percentage of the population, but still account for 3.5% of the total for England. There are also plenty of Asians in the UK, but as Cooper can tell you, they might as well be white for all their fancy degrees and high test scores.

But the fact that England has a somewhat diverse population means little without access to the breakdown of Brexit voters. As luck would have it, today’s Financial Times provides that data. According to the paper, one of the groups most in favor of leaving the EU was residents without a passport. That would seem to suggest refugees from the Arab world, but the article doesn’t specify. No doubt Prof. Cooper has a hunch.
