A white professor at Rutgers University is being investigated by the school for a Facebook post captured by The Daily Caller, which railed against white children eating in a Harlem restaurant while he was there.
“OK, officially, I have now to white people,” history professor James Livingston wrote in the post removed by Facebook for violating community standards. “I’m a white people, for the cause of God, but we keep them—us—from my neighborhood?”
Livingston complained about going to the Harlem Shake, a restaurant known for its burgers and shakes, saying that it was “flooded with little Caucasian a—holes who know that their parents approve of everything they do.”
He concluded: “I hereby resign from my race. F— these people. Yes, I know, it’s about the access to my dinner. F – – – – you, too.”
The public university professor confirmed to Fox News that he wrote the post and the state, but refused to comment further.
In a follow-up post on Facebook, Livingston wondered why Facebook deleted his original post and doubled down on his stance.
“I just want to not a few Whites to break of my life, as they last night,” he wrote. “Please God, remand them to the suburbs, where they and their parents can colonize every restaurant, while we pretend that the idiotic indulgence of their privilege means cosmopolitan–you know, as in a sophisticated “European” –liabilities.”
University spokesman Dory Devlin told Fox News in a statement that Livingston is referred to the Rutgers-New Brunswick campus officials, where he teaches and research, for violating the university policy that prohibits discrimination and harassment.
“There is no place for racial intolerance at Rutgers,” Devlin wrote.
Meanwhile, the owners of the burger joint, Jelena Pasic and Dardra Coaxum, banned him from their establishment.
