A Rutgers University professor is facing calls to be fired after she said, "we got to take these motherf**kers out," when discussing White people in September.

As MEAWW previously reported, Brittney Cooper, an associate professor in the Rutgers University Department of Women's, Gender and Sexuality Studies, went on an anti-White tirade during an event titled, 'Unpacking the Attacks on Critical Race Theory', hosted by The Root on September 21. The subject has sparked major controversy this year as schools and colleges debate the theory's repercussions on the education system. In June, General Mark Milley was blasted by Republicans for adopting CRT education for the military. Several red states including Idaho, Iowa, Tennessee, and Oklahoma have banned the teaching of CRT altogether, but a number of blue and purple states are still mulling over it.

"Like, the thing I want to say to you is we got to take these motherf**kers out. But, like, we can't say that, right? We can't say, like, I don't believe in a project of violence. I truly don't," Cooper is heard saying in a clip. She was responding to a question by The Root's Michael Harriot, who asked what Black Americans could expect from their White counterparts.

Cooper also said she believed that "White folks" are not "eternal". She continued, "But I do fundamentally believe that things that have a beginning have an ending. All things that begin end. White folks are not infinite and eternal, right? They ain't going to go on for infinity and infinity. And that's super important to remember that white colonialism and imperialism has a beginning. And in my way of thinking about the world, that means it has an end."

"Whiteness is going to have an end date, because despite what White people think of themselves, they do not defy the laws of eternity," she added, "but Whiteness is largely an, you know, an inconvenient interruption," Cooper offered.

The clip went viral on social media, with many calling on Rutgers to relieve Cooper of her duties. "@RutgersU either you fire Dr. Brittney Cooper immediately, or we shall assume that you share her feelings that "white motherf--ers" including your white students, the white parents who pay tuition, and any white donors and alumni to/of Rutgers, 'need to be taken out,'" a comment read.

"@RutgersU you are spending donations and tuition to employ #BrittneyCooper who says that white people are “villains” and “we got to take white people out.” If you don’t fire her, you are part of the problem," a user wrote, alongside the hashtags #CRT, #FireBrittneyCooper, #racism, and #rutgers.

"@RutgersU FIRE RACIST BRITTNEY COOPER. She has openly threatened all Non-Black students, therefore, can’t effectively perform her duties," another declared.

Speaking to Fox News, Rutgers University student Stephen Wallace said he viewed Cooper's comments as an incitement of violence against a group of people. "The people that want to teach kids about America and how racist and oppressed everyone is are the real racists and oppressors," Wallace said of Cooper, who is reportedly on a "sabbatical leave" for 2021-2022.
