UNCW Professor Mike Adams has a pretty stunning column in which he quotes part of a speech from Dr. Kamau Kambon, a person that N.C. State once saw fit to hire as a visiting professor:
[W]e have to start to think about a solution to the problem so that these young brothers and sisters who are here now, who are 15, 16 or 17, are not here 25 years later talking about these same problems. Now how do I know that the white people know that we are going to come up with a solution to the problem? I know it because they have retina scans, they have what they call racial profiling, DNA banks, and they’re monitoring our people to try to prevent the one person from coming up with the one idea. And the one idea is, how we are going to exterminate white people because that in my estimation is the only conclusion I have come to. We have to exterminate white people off the face of the planet to solve this problem. Now I don’t care whether you clap or not, but I’m saying to you that we need to solve this problem because they are going to kill us. And I will leave on that. So we just have to just set up our own system and stop playing and get very serious and not be diverted from coming up with a solution to the problem and the problem on the planet is white people.
I wouldn’t be surprised if rants like this earned Dr. Kambon a tenured position in an African-American Studies program somewhere. Ever since the AAS program at my own school, Duke, sponsored a convicted serial bomber to lecture on our campus, it’s hard for anything coming out of AAS departments to shock me anymore (except, perhaps, that these departments still claim to be legitimate academic endeavours).
