Controversial Drexel University professor George Ciccariello-Maher argued that the recent Texas church shooting was caused by “whiteness.”
Drexel professor George Ciccariello-Maher, who is currently banned from campus for incendiary comments he made following the Las Vegas massacre, argued in a radio interview that “whiteness” is to blame for the recent Texas church shooting. In the radio interview, Ciccariello-Maher explicitly blamed Breitbart News’ reporting on his Las Vegas comments for Drexel’s decision to ban him from campus. During the ban, Ciccariello-Maher is teaching classes online.
