    (January 19, 1937- )
    Born in Newark, New Jersey
    Former chair of the black studies program at City College of New York
    Was fired from CCNY but rehired as a lecturer following a court order (1992)
    Claims whites are 'Ice People,' who are violent and cruel, while blacks are 'Sun People,' who are compassionate and peaceful
    Claims blacks are superior to whites because of their higher melanin levels
    He said Jews 'named Greenberg and Weisberg and whatnot' launched a 'conspiracy out of Hollywood' to slander blacks.
    He said 'rich Jews who financed the development of Europe also financed the slave trade.'
    He said the Space Shuttle Challenger disaster was 'the best thing to happen to America in a long time' because it would stop whites from 'spreading their filth through the universe.'
    Asked what kind of world he wanted to leave his children, he said 'A world in which there aren't any white people (1995).'
    He and his wife did research for Alex Haley's 'Roots.'
    Like Ward Churchill, he inspires debate about the limits of academic freedom.
    Given the long history of pseudo-scientific drivel promoting white supremacy (ie, 'The Bell Curve'), the rise of pseudo-scientific drivel promoting black supremacy was probably inevitable.
