Carnegie Mellon University Professor Uja Anya gloated about the death of Britain’s Queen Elizabeth II. She expressed her wish that England’s Queen Elizabeth “die in agony” during her final moments. She also called Elizabeth the “chief monarch of a thieving raping genocidal empire,” even though Elizabeth’s reign opened with Britain giving independence to dozens of African and Asian nations, and Britain committed no genocide of any kind during Elizabeth’s reign, which followed Britain’s defeat of genocidal Nazi Germany in World War II. The queen died a few hours after Anya’s gloating on Twitter.
“That wretched woman and her bloodthirsty throne have fucked generations of my ancestors on both sides of the family,” Anya wrote. “She supervised a government that sponsored the genocide my parents and siblings survived. May she die in agony.”
“If anyone expects me to express anything but disdain for the monarch who supervised a government that sponsored the genocide that massacred and displaced half my family and the consequences of which those alive today are still trying to overcome, you can keep wishing upon a star.”
When a Twitter user gently questioned her comments, Anya replied, “Fuck you and your deference to genocidal colonizers.” In response to another who wrote “Ewww you stink,” Anya replied “You mean like your pussy?”
According to her website, this professor specializes in “critical applied linguistics, critical sociolinguistics, and critical discourse studies examining race, gender, sexual, and social class identities in new language learning through the experiences of African American students.” She previously taught at Penn State and USC and has given lectures on “Critical Race Pedagogy for language teaching,” “Racialized identities in the learning of a second language,” and “Race, gender, sexual, and social class identities in second language learning.”
Anya teaches the classes “Hip Hop and Funk Discourses of Black Womanhood in Brazil and the U.S.” and “Language Diversity and Cultural Identity.”
The Manhattan Institute’s Christopher Rufo noted on Twitter that the professor believes “‘white women consistently vote to protect white supremacy’ and that white mothers of biracial children have ‘Mandingo bbc fantasies of Black men’ and regularly call their own children the n-word.”
