According to the Associate Professor of Religious Studies at the University of Pennsylvania, Anthea Butler, robbery suspect Mike Brown was sacrificed to the “god of white supremacy.”
Butler imbues her diatribe against a racist white America with religious overtones:
No one should be surprised that Darren Wilson was not indicted by the grand jury. Prosecutor Robert McCulloch played the role of Pontius Pilate, washing his and Darren Wilson’s hands of impunity, while the sacrifice, Michael Brown, was deemed worthy of death because in Wilson’s words “he look[ed] like a demon.” Wilson even uses the sacred instrument to complete his sacrifice to the god of American Whiteness: the gun.
Liberals often praise the First and Fourth amendments, but want the cornerstone of the Bill of Rights, the Second Amendment, repealed.
The fantasy that America is plagued by racism straight out of the Antebellum South or South Africa drives the Mike Brown-Trayvon Martin movement.
In fact, much of “white America” is stricken by politically correct guilt over past sins, from slavery to Jim Crow laws and Ku Klux Klansmen bombing churches, crimes they had nothing to do with. The mantra today is “white privilege,” the illusion that skin color is a determining factor in social and political relations.
“There’s something else at work. I think it’s white guilt,” writes Walter E. Williams, who happens to be black. “That’s why, for almost three decades, there has appeared on my website a certificate of amnesty and pardon that I’ve granted to Americans of European ancestry in the hope that they stop feeling guilty and stop acting like fools.”
This is not the first time Butler has exploited social issues in an effort to promulgate a race-based agenda. She is also a vocal critic of George Zimmerman, who was exonerated in the killing of Trayvon Martin, and she also exploited the MTV music awards to push the theory that evil white people appropriate black culture.
