A COLLEGE professor posted a wild coronavirus rant this week, tweeting “f**k each and every Trump supporter.”
Brittney Cooper, an associate professor at Rutgers University in New Jersey, slammed Trump supporters and appeared to blame them for the coronavirus pandemic.
On Tuesday she tweeted: “F*** each and every Trump supporter. You absolutely did this. You are to blame.”
Cooper, the author of Eloquent Rage: A Black Feminist Discovers Her Superpower, tweeted: “I feel like most Black people are clear that this utterly absurd to [sic] push to re-open the country is all about a gross necropolitical calculation that it is Black people who are dying disproportionately from COVID.
“Not only do white conservatives not care about Black life, but my most cynical negative read of the white supremacists among them is that they welcome this massive winnowing of Black folks in order to slow demographic shifts and shore up political power.”
The 39-year-old associate professor, in the Women’s, Gender and Sexuality Department at Rutgers, voiced her opinion as coronavirus cases in the US hit 1,052,203 and the death total topped 60,000.
She continued: “They are literally willing to die from this clusterf***** COVID response rather than admit absolutely anybody other than him [President Trump] would have been a better president.
“Black Lives Matter. Black Lives with hypertension, diabetes, and asthma matter.
“Fat Black Lives matter. All Black Lives matter.”
In a series of follow-up tweets Thursday, Cooper bragged about having tenure with the University and suggested herself and other African Americans are unreasonably affected by the outbreak.
“I said what I meant. And I curse cuz [sic] I’m grown. I disdain every person who thought and thinks he’s a good leader, because that thinking has had material consequences for far too many of us,” she wrote.
“I have tenure. Rutgers won’t be firing me for tweets. That is all.”
Her comments come more than two weeks after coronavirus expert Dr Anthony Fauci warned that African Americans are being disproportionately hit by the virus complications due to having underlying conditions.
During a press conference on April 7, the task force doctor listed the diseases that are causing disproportional numbers, while President Donald Trump dubbed the figures as “nasty numbers.”
Fauci said: “Sometimes, when you’re in the middle of a crisis, like we are now with the coronavirus, it really does shine a very bright light on some of the real weaknesses and foibles in our society.
“We have a difficult problem of exacerbation of a health disparity.
“We have known literally forever that diseases like diabetes, hypertension, obesity and asthma are disproportionately afflicting the minority populations, particularly the African-American.”
