    If you didn't know, Irami Osei-Frimpong co-created Yvette's Breaking Brown show and is an Halfrican that is an ally to American DOS. He is a Ph.d student in philosophy and has his own show, the Funky Academic where teaches grassroots tactics for American DOS to better their communities and what not. And yeah, he's married to a White woman.

    He says a lot of radical things, like Black people in the USA was never taught how to kill White people and that the American Black WW2 soldiers that returned were essential to the Civil Rights Movement because they were used to killing White people. And the pragmatic thing for us to do, would be to violently oppose White Supremacy.

    So he ain't playing around, Tommy Curry said something similar about White people needing to die in order for Black people to be free and he got in trouble.

    Now, Irami is in trouble for saying fighting White people is as a skill. UGA Asians and Whites are calling him a racist, trying to get him fired and disliking his videos. He always said that fighting for the rights of Black people will leave you in poverty.

    Help the brother out...

    UGA Teaching Assistant Facing Backlash After Declaring 'Some White People May Have to Die' to Make Black Communities Whole Again

    A University of Georgia graduate student is catching heat after making racially charged comments in a Facebook post.

    Irami Osei-Frimpong is a philosophy graduate student at the university, where he’s also employed as a teaching assistant.

    Osei-Frimpong said he frequently discusses race and equality. However, critics believe he went a step too far when he made a Facebook post saying, “Some white people may have to die for Black communities to be made whole in this struggle to advance freedom.”


    The teaching assistant said he’s also received backlash over a social media post that said “fighting white people is a skill.”

    “I’m confused why that is so controversial,” he told the news station.

    UGA officials have condemned Osei-Frimpong’s statements, saying, “racism has no place on our campus” and that it’s “vigorously” exploring all available legal options on how to handle the situation. In a statement, the university said it is also seeking advice from the attorney general’s office to ensure the possible legal action taken is still in accordance with the First Amendment.

    A spokeswoman for the attorney general’s office confirmed the matter is currently under review, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported, presumably referring to the state office.

    In an interview with radio station WGAU on Tuesday, Osei-Frimpong insisted he never called for violence but believes it should definitely remain an option.

    “It’s just a fact of history that racial justice often comes at the cost of white life,” he said. “I didn’t advocate for violence. I was just honest of racial progress.”

    He married a white woman then said they may have to die for black communities to get better?

    Conflict of interest much?

    NOI didn't kill 1 white person in any of the cities they were in in their heyday or any time since.

    And he sticks up for NBA men when feminists and lgbt Blacks try to make us seem like monsters.

    Irami is a great ally and we can't let him get slandered by Whites because he told the truth about what it actually takes for us to combat White Supremacy.

    He isn't like many political commentators and politicians who lie and swindle their support base.

    Nah.

    I support his free speech, but don't see any value in his rhetoric. Plus, he's married to a white woman, so is his tongue not synced up to his brain correctly, cause that's a hell of a paradox.

    If he's trying to make folks uneasy, he achieved it, but this offensively homicidal psychopath showmanship is not my personal strategy to move forward.

    Plus it has some "agent-esque" flair to it.

    We know 400 years of injustice, rape, and pillaging, bondage, lynchings, psychological assault was clearly offensively homicidal showmanship, but his strategy to achieve retribution is .....pun intended....it's overkill.

    We have a whole continent and a massive Diaspora to build up and develop into a global powerhouse. If you want to "get back" psychologically or materially then turn Africa into Wakanda and make sure the Diaspora is tapped into it.

    So instead of being Killmonger with the violence, be Killmonger with the vision, by making sure the Diaspora is tapped into Africa's Renaissance.

    I don't know, he said he got court coming up because of this and luckily he got some White people that will represent him.

    He always says, if you love him, shoot him some money because advocating for Black folk don't pay bills. I'ma give him some since I am up right now.

    Recent episodes, I'ma keep updating this thread with his content just to show why theywant him gone and plus they are good videos.

    What do you think the NoI had guns for?
    You think it wasn't for the possibility that they may in fact have to kill whites who attack them?
    Stop with the pie in the sky nonsense.

    There is a difference between advocating outright murder of non-aggressors, and saying we are prepared to kill whites who attack us and threaten our lives and livlihood, ie black self defense.

    What was the actual strawman?
    Saying pie in the sky, isn't a strawman argument, you understand that right? Use words properly.
