Brittney Cooper is an associate professor of Africana and Women’s and Gender Studies at Rutgers University. Much of her research and writing centers around the intersections of race, feminism, and gender. Cooper’s work has led her to develop a number of bizarre opinions:
-While Cooper claims that most American Christians worship a God of “white supremacy and patriarchy,” she chooses to worship a Jesus that was “queer” and “married to a prostitute.”
-White families, like Mitt Romney’s, can’t properly raise black children.
-Linear time is a product of a Euro-centric world, or in short, our concept of time is racist.
-A founding principle of our nation is that black people are inhuman, therefore riots are really just resistance against an unjust system.
-BREXIT was the result of white nationalism.
-And obesity in the black community is caused by racism.
Cooper has publicly attacked conservatives on multiple occasions, most recently during a Livestream commentary on the DNC. Before launching into a tirade accusing Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas for “demolishing the civil rights movement,” Cooper explained why American exceptionalism is a myth;
Cooper has attributed most of the deaths from the pandemic to racism and conservatives, stating that, “I feel like most Black people are clear that this utterly absurd push to re-open the country is all about a gross necropolitical calculation that it is Black people who are dying disproportionately from COVID,” and blaming Trump supporters for the hundreds of thousands of deaths due to the coronavirus.
Cooper has previously stated that a conservative’s beliefs are “rooted in racism.” In an appearance on MSNBC, Cooper stated that conservatives have a desire for power at the expense of black and brown Americans.
Cooper has denigrated conservatives throughout her career along racial lines. During a speech in Baltimore, she stated that as white men lose their power, they will continue to “terrorize” black men and women. In a previous thread, she stated that the black community is being eaten alive by “capitalism, patriarchy, and racism,” and white people won’t feel any negative consequences of these systems so long as they can continue to displace white people through systems like gentrification.
