A history professor at New Jersey’s Rutgers University ripped white people after being annoyed by little (white) kids at a Harlem restaurant.

“Slide around the floor, you little shithead, sing loudly, you unlikely moron,” he continued, and then concluded he was “resign[ing] from [his] race.”
Livingston responded to the controversy with a follow-up post:
