A professor at a New Jersey university doubled down Thursday, saying she’s tenured, after blaming President Trump and his supporters for the impact of the Coronavirus outbreak, claiming it’s their fault African-Americans have been dying at a disproportionate rate.

“F— each and every Trump supporter. You absolutely did this. You are to blame,” were among the comments – several of them containing profanity – posted on Twitter this week by Brittney Cooper, an associate professor in the Department of Women’s, Gender and Sexuality Studies at Rutgers University.

“I said what I meant. And I curse cuz I’m grown,” she wrote in part in a series of tweets Thursday, adding, “I have tenure. Rutgers won’t be firing me for tweets.”

In another post, Cooper wrote that she and other African-Americans suspect that recent efforts to reopen the country following stay-at-home orders were “all about a gross necropolitical calculation that it is Black people who are dying disproportionately from COVID.”

“Not only do white conservatives not care about Black life,” she wrote, “but my most cynical negative read of the white supremacists among them is that they welcome this mass winnowing of Black folks in order to slow demographic shifts and shore up political power.”

Last week, Dr. Anthony Fauci, a member of the White House Coronavirus Task Force, said during an online interview that high coronavirus death rates among African-Americans were largely attributable to pre-existing health conditions that are common in the black community, such as hypertension, obesity, diabetes and asthma.
