When I was little and growing up reading Superman comic books, little did I realize that one day I would live in a real life Bizarro World. Only in such a world could we hear a story like the one I am about to reveal to you.
A professor at Cambridge University wrote that “White Lives Don’t Matter.” In a sane world her butt would be bouncing down the street away from the school. But in modern England it got her a promotion and a hefty pay raise.
It makes me appreciate that the Founding Fathers in their infinite wisdom tossed their redcoat arses out of this country.
Dr. Priyamvada Gopal Tweeted:
“I’ll say it again. White Lives Don’t Matter. As white lives.”
On Wednesday she announced that the university promoter her to a full professorship:
Thanks to everyone who wrote to @Twitter: the ludicrous ban has been lifted. I am therefore delighted to share with you personally, that last night Cambridge promoted me to a full Professorship. The hate mails & threats are coming in non-stop but @CambridgeCops are following up

Gopal, 51, teaches in the Faculty of English at Churchill College, and after her Twitter post Tuesday night, a petition was launched titled “Fire Cambridge Professor for Racism” on change.org.
On Wednesday Gopal stated on Twitter: “I would also like to make clear I stand by my tweets, now deleted by Twitter, not me. They were very clearly speaking to a structure and ideology, not about people. My Tweet said whiteness is not special, not a criterion for making lives matter. I stand by that.”
The university backed Gopal and attacked those who targeted her, stating, “The University defends the right of its academics to express their own lawful opinions which others might find controversial and deplores in the strongest terms abuse and personal attacks. These attacks are totally unacceptable and must cease.”
Now, let me ask you this. Would the university have taken the same stance had a professor written “Black Lives Don’t Matter.”? Of course not.
And I say to the British, “Goodbye to bad rubbish.”
