Our nation’s colleges and universities have become a hotbed of hatred, intolerance, and bigotry. The latest example of this insanity: a Georgetown University professor asserted that all white people are racist and that all men are sexist.
Liberty Unyielding reports:
Meet Preston Mitchum, who according to a 2015 YouTube interview is “black, gifted & whole.” But he is much more than that:
“Preston is a Policy Research Analyst for the Center for Health and Gender Equity (CHANGE). He is also an Adjunct Professor at Georgetown University School of Continuing Studies teaching Advanced Legal Research & Writing. Previously, he was a LGBT and Racial Justice Policy Analyst at the Center for American Progress (CAP) where he focused on the intersection of race, sexual orientation, and gender identity as it related to the school-to-prison pipeline, workplace discrimination, and HIV criminalization laws.”
He is also a racist in the most direct sense of the word — viz., “the belief that all members of each race possess characteristics or abilities specific to that race, especially so as to distinguish it as inferior or superior to another race or races.”
On July 23, he made the following broad declaration on Twitter.
Yes, ALL white people are racist. Yes, ALL men are sexist. Yes, ALL cis people are transphobic. We have to unpack that. That's the work!

Mitchum — whose Twitter feed displays a graphic promoting Black Lives Matter — protected this and other provocative tweets he has made after Campus Reform publicized them in a post. Mitchum told Campus Reform that he was “a little troubled, but not surprised, about the conservative outrage” his initial tweet provoked, since most commenters took issue with his remarks about white racism:
“Most of the commentators didn’t push back on the idea of men being sexist and cis people being transphobic as untrue; only that all white people are not racist. And that’s likely because many of them saw themselves in my tweet and went on the defense immediately.”
Ah, yes, only a racist or sexist would push back against being called a racist and sexist.
