An Iowa State University professor is under fire for a tweet in which she said she tries to limit her interactions with white people “as much as possible.”
The racist comment has made many question whether or not Iowa State University Professor Rita Mookerjee is grading or teaching white students fairly.
“Lately, I try to limit my interactions with yt people as much as possible. I can’t with the self-importance and performance esp during Black History Month,” the nutty professor wrote. “Yt” is slang for “white” and most frequently used when posting derogatory anti-white racism.
Campus Reform reports that in another October 2020 tweet, she tweeted that “whyte men with dirty hair and wrinkled clothes will always be liked and higher ranked.” She was also outraged online because someone supposedly called her “white.”

The Iowa State University Student Government President issued a statement about the racist posts, due to the fact that she was scheduled to speak on their Women’s Week ‘Diversity and Inclusion’ panel. Despite the shocking and extremist views she holds, they declined to remove her from the event.
