Tell California State University to reverse its appointment of a supporter of notorious anti-Semite Louis Farrakhan as dean of ethnic studies.
Dr. Julianne Malveaux, a defender of Louis Farrakhan, was recently appointed dean of ethnic studies at California State University (CSU) Los Angeles.
In addition to being a Holocaust denier, Farrakhan consistently blames Jews for the world’s ills, referring to Jews as the “synagogue of Satan.”
Responding to Farrakhan’s Jewish critics, Malveaux told the Nation of Islam’s newspaper in 2018, The Final Call, “Until these Jewish people who are running around asking Black people to buck dance, until they ask White people to buck dance, I ain’t having it! I’m just not having it!”
Farrakhan had stoked controversy by referring to Jews as “termites.”
In a 2018 Birmingham Times op-ed, Malveaux wrote, “White people’s hatred for Minister Farrakhan is irrational and, might I say, racist.”
In the same year, Malveaux was a guest on YouTube show “Roland Martin Unfiltered,” where she claimed “Jewish people certainly have a right to live, to survive, and to thrive, but at the expense of other people who they’ve run off their land?” Campus Reform reported.
According to Campus Reform, Malveaux continued, “And if you take it in terms of historical context, remember that Israel was created out of Palestinian land. Guess where they were gonna put it first? Uganda. The initial plan was to put Israel — they wanted to snatch some Black people land, but you know those Maasai were not having that. But that was the initial plan, was to create a Jewish homeland on the African continent.”
In reality, there was no official plan by Jews to settle in Uganda, StandWithUs CEO and Co-Founder Roz Rothstein told Education Next.
“The Malveaux appointment is likely to fuel criticism of ethnic studies as overly political and tainted with anti-Semitism,” Education Next wrote. Indeed, in March, California adopted an ethnic studies curriculum that Jewish groups described as “flawed.”
Rabbi Marvin Hier, Founder and Dean of the Simon Wiesenthal Center denounced Malveaux’s appointment, saying in a statement, “To have a situation where a dean of an American educational institution in the heart of California is a supporter of the most notorious anti-Semite in America, Louis Farrakhan, is unbelievable.”
Rabbi Hier is correct! CSU should cut ties with Malveaux NOW!
Tell CSU to retract its appointment of Farrakhan apologist Dr. Julianne Malveaux as dean of ethnic studies at California State University Los Angeles.
