USA Today “Race and Inclusion” editor Hemal Jhaveri has been fired for anti-white racist tweets following the mass shooting in Colorado.
One of Jhaveri’s now deleted tweets read, “He’s still an angry white man. Always.”
Of course, it was not a white man, but Ahmad Al Aliwi Al-Issa, an Arab Muslim who was responsible for slaughtering ten whites.
Jhaveri announced his dismissal in a whiny post on Medium.
“On Tuesday morning, after the shooter was identified as Ahmad Al Aliwi Alissa, several high-level alt-right Twitter accounts picked up the tweet as an example of anti-white prejudice and racism against whites. You can guess what will happen next, ”she wrote.
“There was outrage on social media, threats and harassment against me, and at the end of the day USA TODAY had relieved me of my position as Editor-in-Chief of Race and Inclusion,” the post continued. .
Jhaveri took no responsibility for his racism, saying the tweet was “a challenge to white supremacy” which was militarized by “bad faith actors”.
“It’s not about bias or keeping personal opinions off of Twitter. It’s about contesting the whiteness and being punished for it, ”she moans.
USA Today upheld its decision to fire the racist.
“USA TODAY was founded on the foundation of diversity, equity and inclusion,” the spokesperson said in a statement to The Hill. “We hold our employees accountable for these principles both personally and professionally.”
