An assistant humanities professor at Shimer College has sparked social media ire after writing on Twitter and in his blog that all white Americans are complicit in slavery.

“Whether or not your individual ancestors owned slaves, you as a white person have benefitted from slavery and are complicit in it. Sorry,” Adam Kotsko, who describes himself on Twitter as “an obscure white professor,” wrote to his more than 8,000 followers on June 25, according to screenshots captured by The Social Memo.

“I know it sucks having a racial identity that exists to legitimate the subordination and exploitation of other races. #whiteness,” he added.

The tweets were eventually deleted, but in a tweet directed at The Daily Caller, Mr. Kotsko clarified that he still stands by his statements.

“I deleted the tweet in question in this article solely b/c I was sick of retweets in my mentions. I stand behind it,” he said

Oh well, some assistant prof at an overpriced private school in South Chicago says we're all complicit, so it must be true. I guess that's it. What choice do I have but to just give in and agree?

That's right, I can do this. :rotfl::rotfl::rotfl:
