On Friday, Campus Reform reported that George Ciccariello-Maher, the Drexel University professor who tweeted last winter that “All I want for Christmas is white genocide,” has resigned from his tenured position.
According to Campus Reform:
George Ciccariello-Maher, who teaches politics and global studies, announced his resignation in a Twitter post Thursday, citing that his situation has become “unsustainable” in light of prolonged threats against him and his family.
“After December 31st 2017, I will no longer work at Drexel University. This is not a decision I take lightly; however, after nearly a year of prolonged harassment by right-wing white supremacist media outlets and internet mobs…my situation has grown unsustainable,” he wrote. “Staying at Drexel in the eye of this storm has become detrimental to my own writing, speaking, and organizing.”
