MLK-Quoting Professor Is Racist?

MLK-Quoting Professor Is Racist?

(TargetLiberty.org) – A professor at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA), is under investigation for using racist language in class. The school is investigating police science instructor LTC (USAF, retired) W Ajax Peris for using “the N word” despite the fact he was quoting, not using it in his own words. Worst of all – he was quoting Martin Luther King.

On June 2, LTC Peris gave a class focused on violence against African-Americans. To demonstrate the injustices that led to lynching, he read out loud the Reverand King’s “Letter from Birmingham jail,” then showed clips from a documentary. Both the reading and clips involved, as was typical of civil rights issues in the 1960s, use of “the N word.” Unfortunately, some students were too mentally fragile to survive the experience and submitted complaints.

LTC Peris has been condemned by multiple members of the UCLA faculty for his “offensive and hurtful” language – even though that language actually belonged to the Reverend Martin Luther King. Anti-racism is eating its father.
