*Former* NC State visiting prof Kamau Kambon DID call for the extermination of white people
Posted by Jon Sanders at 10:07 AM*** See updates below *** (This post is an update of yesterday's post.)
Go to C-SPAN online, click on the recent archives and scroll down till you find "Black Media Forum on Image of Black Americans in Mainstream Media" (Oct. 14 at Howard University). It's a very long program (apparently 4 hours), and Kambon makes his appearance at the 3:33 mark. The comments in question start just before the 3:41 mark. I have updated the transcript, which was essentially correct. Here are Kambon's closing remarks:
And then finally I want to say that we need one idea, and we're not thinking about a solution to the problem. We're thinking about all these other things, but we're not dealing with a solution to the problem. And we have to start to think about a solution to the problem so that these young brothers and sisters who are here now, who are 15, 16 or 17, are not here 25 years later talking about these same problems.
Now how do I know that the white people know that we are going to come up with a solution to the problem. I know it because they have retina scans, they have what they call racial profiling, DNA banks, and they’re monitoring our people to try to prevent the one person from coming up with the one idea. And the one idea is, how we are going to exterminate white people because that in my estimation is the only conclusion I have come to. We have to exterminate white people off the face of the planet to solve this problem. *tepid applause* Now I don’t care whether you clap or not, but I’m saying to you that we need to solve this problem because they are going to kill us. And I will leave on that. So we just have to just set up our own system and stop playing and get very serious and not be diverted from coming up with a solution to the problem and the problem on the planet is white people.
Earlier in the program Kambon say that "we are in a war" (~3:36 mark), that white people had pretended to free blacks but instead set up an "international plantation" (~3:36:50 mark) that made "every white person on earth a plantation master," that "white people want to kill you" and that is "because that is part of their plan" (~3:37:45), and that “the only nigger on the planet is the white man and the white woman, and our people are not niggers, they are imitation niggers” (~3:39).
I'm still trying to verify whether Kambon is still a visiting professor at NC State. He is at least still listed on the Africana Studies faculty page.
*** Update 10:50 a.m. *** Shannon Blosser of the Pope Center for Higher Education Policy writes that:
"From Keith Nichols, news and information director [of NC State]: They have no listing of him [Kambon] as a professor, last known reference is Spring 2004. He also added that he has no ideas why he was let go, but that it might have been that since he was a visiting professor that he was not scheduled to teach past the spring of 2004."
*** Update 11:44 a.m. *** I see Kambon listed as teaching at NC State in Fall 2004 and also Spring 2005. Perhaps Nichols meant "Spring 2005" not 2004?
*** Update 1:12 p.m. *** Listen to excerpts of the speech in a subsequent post.
*** Update 10/21/05, 2:12 p.m. *** NCSU has removed Kambon's name from the Africana web page, and Provost Larry Nielsen released the following statement: "The remarks recently attributed to one of our former employees do not in any way represent the values and standards of the university. This type of speech is counter to any reasoned discussion on the issue of race relations, and is absolutely unacceptable in the NC State community." More info here.
