Racist black Columbia University professor Lionel McIntyre reportedly sucked two white acquaintances into letting him harangue them about "white privilege," and capped off his lecture by sucker-punching both of them. Last time a racist black Columbia professor was in danger of losing her job, a noose hoax magically came to the (temporary) rescue. Don't be surprised if a race hoax, er, hate crime hits McIntyre.
In October 2007, as tenured, Columbia University affirmative action empty professor of multicultural mishigass Madonna Constantine was about to get fired for plagiarism, a miracle occurred. A noose appeared on her door. Deus ex funi! It was those armies of invisible Klansmen running amok on Columbia’s campus again!
The race hoax bought Constantine another eight months, before Columbia got up the nerve to fire her. Earlier this year, Constantine sued, charging the school with an "academic lynching," and seeking $200 million.
(Granted, there is something odd about the very notion of plagiarism, where such anti-scholarship is concerned. In order to grasp what is in play, imagine the dumbest kid in class switching seats for a math test, so that he can sit next to, and cheat off of the second-dumbest kid. So, they each get a 2 out of a possible 100, instead of one getting a “2” and the other a “0.” However, the Constantine case is even weirder, in that she stole her students’ work!)
Columbia did its best to help with the noose hoax, by refusing to hand over the videotape of the hall outside of Constantine’s office, but eventually the authorities forced the school to hand over the tape, which was allegedly unhelpful. The media were also tremendously helpful, by acting as though we hadn’t already been down the same road 1000 times, and the incident could possibly have been committed by a racist white.
Columbia’s newest candidate to be a victim of a hate crime is affirmative action professor Lionel McIntyre. McIntyre, 59, is “Nancy and George Rupp Associate Professor in the Practice of Community Development and the Founding Director of the Urban Technical Assistance Project at Columbia University.” (All AA professors are “directors” and “chairs” and “deans,” and/or have endowed chairs. As we shall see, however, McIntyre’s fancy titles mean bupkus.)
Police busted Lionel McIntyre, 59, for assault yesterday after his bruised victim, Camille Davis, filed charges.
McIntyre and Davis, who works as a production manager in the school’s theater department, are both regulars at Toast, a popular university bar on Broadway and 125th Street, sources said.
The professor, who is black, had been engaged in a fiery discussion about “white privilege” with Davis, who is white, and another male regular, who is also white, Friday night at 10:30 when fists started flying, patrons said.
[Note the passive voice. According to witnesses, fists didn’t “start flying,” suggesting a bar fight; rather, McIntyre alone started throwing punches. And from the context of this story and this one, McIntyre hadn’t been “engaged in a fiery discussion about ‘white privilege’” with his alleged victims, but had insisted on browbeating them about so-called white privilege, as he previously had Ms. Davis a few weeks earlier, and had used the same pretext to harass other white customers for over two years. Then, when one or both of his white companions disagreed with him, he reportedly suckerpunched both of them. And nobody, not victims, witnesses, or staff, gave him a dose of his own medicine. It’s hard out there being a black man!]
McIntyre, who is known as “Mac” at the bar, shoved Davis, and when the other patron and a bar employee tried to break it up, the prof slugged Davis in the face, witnesses said.
“The punch was so loud, the kitchen workers in the back heard it over all the noise,” bar back Richie Velez, 28, told The Post. “I was on my way over when he punched Camille [Davis] and she fell on top of me.”
The other patron involved in the dispute said McIntyre then took a swing at him after he yelled, “You don’t hit a woman!”
“He knocked the glasses right off my face,” said the man, who would only give his first name as “Shannon.” “The punch came out of nowhere. Mac was talking to us about white privilege and what I was doing about it -- apparently I wasn’t doing enough.”
McIntyre had squabbled with Davis several weeks earlier over issues involving race, witnesses said. As soon as the professor threw the punch Friday, server Rob Dalton and another employee tossed him out.
“It was a real sucker punch,” Dalton said. “Camille’s a great lady, always nice to everybody, and doesn’t deserve anything like this.”
Does being a black affirmative action professor—if you’ll pardon the redundancy—at Columbia come with a certain limited number of sucker punches against whites as a perq, or is the school’s personnel rule, “All the whites you can cold-cock”?
Now I’m not the sharpest knife in the drawer, but having been sucker punched a few times by blacks (and once by a Puerto Rican) in New York, I know not to take my eyes off an aggressively obnoxious, racist black, man or woman. Then again, I don’t look for company with the likes of Lionel McIntyre.
When I taught college, if I had a student who was looking to create a violent situation, I either ordered him out of class, or got security to “escort” him out.
The last time I can recall a “discussion” like the one in the bar, was in 1986 or so. I had only recently come back from West Germany to attend grad school. Although I would consider myself a “liberal” until late ‘95 or early ‘96, and have occasionally had moments of cowardice in dealing with racist blacks (hey, I’m a coward at heart), I have never felt the slightest pang of white guilt. I could never afford it.
Three students—two average-to-smallish white guys, and a black guy who was about 6’3” (i.e., taller than me) got on board the Brooklyn-bound train in lower Manhattan near Union Square. They were coming from some sort of “anti-apartheid” teach-in at the New School attacking South Africa’s white government. (The three were plenty loud, and there weren’t many people in the car.) In spite of my personal experiences with black supremacy, based on my liberal upbringing, ignorance of Africa, and diet of media propaganda, I knew little about the reality of life there, especially regarding the racial terrorist Nelson Mandela, and had conventionally liberal views on white-dominated apartheid. But I was already familiar with blacks’ routine of using the pretext of condemning racism to racially harass whites, and would have nothing of it.
The black guy harangued the white guys, and they loved it. After a couple of stops, the white guys got off, and the black guy made a beeline for me.
Approaching me, he wore a friendly face, as I recall, as he started his harangue. I cut him off with something like, “I’m not interested,” and then I clearly recall saying, as I got up from my seat, “I’m walking away. Don’t follow me!”
He was shocked. I don’t think he was American.
Still, he could have sucker punched me. Back in those days, I still used to turn my back, and walk away. Experience (broken bones) has since taught me to back away, with my eyes on the other guy (white guys too, though they’re rarely a problem).
During the late 1980s, I had at least three instances, in different offices, in which black female colleagues race-baited me.
One sat down next to me, and out of nowhere, truculently proclaimed, “You don’t know any black people”; a second charged me with “racism” for a completely innocuous remark; and a third black woman brought her child of about five to work, sent her down the hall to bother me at my desk all the time, and when I asked the mother to stop, the latter screamed at me in front of our female Irish director, “I’ll kick your white ass!”
I immediately told the first two women never to talk to me again, and wrote a letter to the director in the third case. She did not respond directly, but the black woman stopped bringing her child to work.
Lionel McIntyre reportedly gave a non-apology in the passive voice, as if he had been a mere observer to the two sucker-punch assaults: “It was a very unfortunate event. I didn’t mean for it to explode the way it did.”
I’ll take that as his idea of a confession.
Reading between the lines of the heavily censored story in the Columbia Spectator student newspaper, McIntyre had been racially harassing people in the bar for over two years, and when he assaulted two patrons, no one called the police.
Daniel Morgan, a local resident on 123rd Street who said he has known both the offender and the victim for around five years from frequenting Toast…
… said he ran into Davis on the street on Saturday, when he saw her injuries from the fight. “Her right eye was closed from getting a beating. I told her, ‘We got to go to the 26th Precinct and report this immediately.’” According to Morgan, nobody in the bar on Friday night had made any calls to the police, and Davis did not initially report the assault because she was frightened.
“I told her, ‘You are not offending anyone. You were attacked,’” he said. Though he has seen McIntyre get vocal at the bar, Morgan said he had never seen McIntyre get violent.
He added, “What really pisses me off is that no one did anything about it.” Morgan said that he was not sure about what caused the fight, though he noted that, over the past two years, McIntyre has generally been involved in increasingly heated conversations in the bar.
Davis waited three days to inform the police, because, according to Morgan, “She was being pressured not to make waves.”
Nothing caused “the fight,” because there was no fight. There was simply one violent, privileged black man who figured that he could beat whites at will, who committed racially motivated assaults on two of them, and who faced no serious resistance.
McIntyre now needs for any or all of the following to happen: 1. To “find” a noose hanging from his office door knob; 2. To “find” racist graffiti on his office door and/or the wall next to it; 3. To “find” emails with racial epithets and death threats in his inbox, etc.
Two things “Mac” doesn’t have to worry about are white feminists and the media.
Not one feminist will come after this guy, just as they failed to out against OJ Simpson in 1994. As one liberal explained to me when I asked why it’s ok for college students to assault Ann Coulter, “but she’s a conservative!”
White feminists can be relied on to never criticize a black man who brutalizes white women. White feminists are terrified of violent black men, couldn’t give a hang about real female victims, and in such situations seek out the nearest non-violent white man to terrorize.
Oh, and you know all that “White privilege” stuff? The stuff for which he punched her? Hmmm, maybe “White privilege” means something different but it seems a different race has the privilege these days…
Nancy and George Rupp Associate Professor in the Practice of Community Development and the Founding Director of the Urban Technical Assistance Project at Columbia University
Lionel McIntrye participated in the World Leaders Forum panel, Columbia University and the Global Sustainability Challege, in October 2008.
Lionel McIntyre is currently the Nancy and George Rupp Associate Professor in the Practice of Community Development and the director of the Urban Technical Assistance Project at Columbia University. Professor McIntyre received his BA from Dillard University in 1987 and his MS in urban planning from Columbia in 1988.
Lionel McIntyre was an honorary fellow at the Municipal Arts Society from 1989 to 1990. He also held the position of director of the Graduate Program in Urban Planning at Columbia University from 1993 to 1999. Currently, Professor McIntyre teaches courses in community development.
From the mid-1960s [not bloody likely: he was only born in 1950!] to the mid-1970s, Professor McIntyre worked in civil rights and labor organizing in the deep South. His international experience began with travel abroad in 1972 as co-liaison for the first "People to People Friendship Delegation" to the People's Republic of China and conducted a subsequent study tour in 1979. Other experiences in the international community have included planning studios in Haiti, Jamaica, Puerto Rico, and South Africa. He also served as director of planning for the Harlem Urban Development Corporation from 1989 to 1994 and advisor to the president of Columbia University on community development and the Empowerment Zone. He created the organizational structure for the preparation of the Upper Manhattan Empowerment Zone (EZ) application and co-authored the strategic plan for Harlem's EZ.
Professor McIntyre's present efforts are focused on the development of the Urban Technical Assistance Project as an urban extension center, providing urban planning and design services to communities through the application of advanced technologies and urban expertise.
That’s two show-no jobs (or should I say, “no-show”?)—i.e., two pay checks entailing no work—followed by a whole lot of nothing. McIntyre is 59 years old. If he were a real professor, his CV would cite specific courses he had taught, articles and books he’d authored, and scholarly papers he’d presented. (When I taught college, I published articles and presented papers all the time.)
By the way, does “Lionel McIntrye [sic] participated in the World Leaders Forum panel, Columbia University,” mean that McIntyre is a “world leader”? And to what “advanced technologies” does the profile refer? McIntyre has no technological background. And to what does “urban expertise” refer? Is that a euphemism for his being black? And what does it mean, in English, to “create the organizational structure for the preparation of the Upper Manhattan Empowerment Zone (EZ) application”? I think it means that he said to someone, “Here, you write the application.” Meanwhile, the description of the Urban Technical Assistance Project sounds like an attempt by McIntyre, with Columbia’s collusion, to extend his campus-based rent-seeking operation beyond Columbia’s campus. If there is one thing McIntyre’s CV shouts, it is a lack of any sort of expertise.
McIntyre has no academic or scholarly background, and is thus utterly unqualified to be a college professor, much less at one of the nation’s most prestigious schools. In his twenties and thirties, he was a racist, communist organizer, and picked up a bachelor’s degree from a third-rate, black school, and a quickie, gift AA master’s degree that Columbia gave him after one year. He was then given one phony, show-no/no-show, AA job after another. Indeed, it appears that Columbia had already decided to sponsor McIntyre, and threw him the phony M.S. degree, in order to rationalize hiring him to a cushy, no-show job. All the man does is hang around bars, get drunk, and terrorize whites. Do Columbia’s predominantly white students’ parents know that this is what they are paying for with their tuition checks?
Columbia got what it wanted: It wanted a racist, communist thug and goldbrick, McIntyre had the proper CV, and he has proved himself thus. With his racial assaults on whites, he’s earned his street cred, and repaid Columbia’s faith in him. Who says “due diligence, diversity-style” doesn’t work?
Meanwhile, better get to work on those KKK e-mails, Mac.
