Carol Swain, black Vanderbilt professor, says Black Lives Matter movement is ‘pure Marxism’

– The Washington Times – Monday, July 11, 2016

A black law professor at Vanderbilt University believes last week’s cop killings at a Black Lives Matter rally in Dallasshould signify the end of the movement, saying it’s a Marxist uprising that’s become a “very destructive force in America.”

“It’s not really addressing the real problems affecting African Americans,” Carol Swain, a prominent Christian conservative, told CNN, Campus Reformreported. “It’s misleading black people. It needs to go.”

She urged CNN viewers to go to the official Black Lives Matter organization’s website to read “what they’re really about.”

“It’s pure Marxism; it talks about state violence, genocide; all of those are buzzwords that are quite destructive,” she said.

Ms. Swain also condemned the media for rushing to judgment following the police shootings of Alton Sterling and Philando Castile.

“Videos don’t tell the entire story,” she said. “We have to look at the credibility of the witnesses, we need to not rush to judgment, and I find the media, they’re putting too much focus on the videos before we have the facts.”

Vanderbilt University responded to backlash over Ms. Swain’s comments in a statement Sunday.

Professor Swain’s views are her own and in no way represent those of the university. Vanderbilt University is committed to diversity, inclusion and freedom from discrimination,” the statement said. “Ensuring that our campus is a safe, welcoming and supportive environment for every member of the Vanderbilt community has been, and will always be, our top priority. Vanderbilt joins the nation in mourning Alton Sterling, Philando Castile and the five officers killed in Dallas Thursday.”

Ms. Swain responded to the statement in a Facebook post Monday, writing, “Vanderbilt is missing an opportunity to lead by addressing the larger set of issues involving blacks and crime in America.”

Ms. Swain made headlines in November after a student petition accused her of “bigotry,” “intolerance” and “discriminatory practices” on social media and in the classroom.

Ms. Swain defended her conservative views, writing on Facebook: “I will share my views as long as the media comes to me. I would do the nation a disservice if I simply parroted a predictable party line,” Campus Reform reported.
