Argues most black Republicans are ‘MAGA Black White supremacists’
Georgia Republican Senate candidate Herschel Walker is “coonish” and “subliterate,” according to a University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign professor who is also an “anti-racist” consultant.
Walker is “incompetent, subliterate and coonish,” Professor Sundiata Cha-Jua, a history and African-American studies professor, wrote in The News-Gazette in his regular column on October 23. “Coon” is a racial slur that refers to depictions of black individuals as lazy or dumb.
His column focused on black Republicans and how they are actually “MAGA Black White supremacists.” The black professor started the Policing in a Multiracial Society Program, which “provides systematic anti-racial bias education and training for police recruits attending the University of Illinois’s Police Training Institute” and “researches the racial attitudes of police and the effectiveness of anti-racist training,” according to his faculty bio.
The race for Champaign County Clerk is between a black Democrat named Aaron Ammons and a black Republican named Terence Stuber. Cha-Jua compared Stuber to a slave, because he was recruited to run against another black individual.
The professor wrote:
What type of Black Republican is Stuber? He was recruited by White Republican leadership to run against Ammons, the only African American clerk in Champaign County history. Like Deering [a white candidate in another race], “the hard, overt and aggressive” White supremacist, Stuber is an election denier.
And like the incompetent, subliterate and coonish Herschel Walker, Stuber reiterates “massa” Trump’s talking points. Intimating fraud, he cast aspersions on the 2020 elections. Stuber alleged votes were not counted in Georgia and Arizona, and further declared, “Champaign County may have stopped counting. I don’t know.” But during a late August interview with The News-Gazette’s Tom Kacich, he dissembled when asked if Trump had won. Again, disingenuously claiming uncertainty, he stated, “I don’t know if he truly was the winner.”
“What kind of Black Republican is Stuber?” the professor continued. “His words and deeds indicate he’s a genuine MAGA Black White supremacist.”
The professor in his column also wrote that a few black Republicans may genuinely care about the plight of their constituents, but “most are truly MAGA Black White supremacists who pursue neoliberal policies despite their negative impact on the majority of Black people.”
