Michael Eric Dyson

Georgetown University

 

Michael Eric Dyson is a Professor of Sociology at Georgetown University.

Dyson has alleged that there has been a “resurgence” of white supremacy under a conservative presidency. In an interview with Tucker Carlson, he has also asked for whites to pay reparations to black communities to offset America’s legacy of racism. During a debate on political correctness in 2018 with Professor Jordan Peterson, Dyson repeatedly referred to Peterson as just a “mean, mad, old, white, man.” 

Just prior to Independence Day 2019, Dyson appeared on MSNBC and compared the iconic Betsy Ross Flag to a Nazi Swastika,

Well, it hails from the Revolutionary period, of course, of this nation’s founding, which was deeply embroiled in, you know, enslavement, of the owners of slaves…..Right-wing white supremacists have used it as a rallying cry for their own cause.” 

Dyson continued,

“Words matter, symbols matter too. Why don’t we wear a swastika for July Fourth? Because I don’t know, it makes a difference.”

Dyson is also associated with the notorious anti-Semite and Nation of Islam leader, Louis Farrakhan. In 2010, Dyson participated in a roundtable discussion hosted by PBS with Farrakhan and interviewed him the same year about the economic condition of black communities.
