A University of Georgia graduate student does not understand why saying “some white people may have to die” is receiving backlash.
“Some white people may have to die for Black communities to be made whole in this struggle to advance to freedom,” Osei-Frimpong wrote, according to a screenshot from Campus Reform. “To pretend that’s not the case is ahistorical and generally naive.”
Osei-Frimpong does not understand why he is getting criticized, however.
“I’m confused why that is so controversial,” Osei-Frimpong said, WSB-TV reported Tuesday.
The UGA grad student added he was not trying to call for violence, but was being “honest of racial progress,” according to WSB-TV reported.
“If they fire me, they’d be firing me for doing my job,” Osei-Frimpong said.
UGA released a statement Sunday saying they were considering legal options.

“Racism has no place on our campus, and we condemn the advocacy or suggestion of violence in any form,” the statement posted to Twitter said.
Osei-Frimpong has a history of demeaning white people. He compared white southerners to “sociopaths” and “autistic kids.” The teaching assistant also called for white people’s churches, schools and families to be “dismantled” because they supposedly created “crappy white people,” Campus Reform reported.
Osei-Frimpong did not immediately respond to The Daily Caller News Foundation’s request for comment.
