... by Tijjani Muhammad Musa


I just came on board my Facebook wall and commenced browsing downward to see what new is happening and catch up on what I've missed. Suddenly I saw this heading: PROGRESSIVE PROFESSOR URGES WHITE MALE STUDENTS TO COMMIT SUICIDE DURING CLASS and my interest and curiousity was activated. Who could be so bold, making this very serious, not-so-palatable statement and directing it to the whites? Habaa! 

So I clicked on the title which combined as a link to arrive at a website - Diversity Chronicle and the bold and brazen interview of the Professor who made that euthanistic suggestion.

These are some of the shocking things he had to say in response to questions asked by Ivan Fernando, which made the title simply a child's play... Hear him:

“If you are a white male, you don’t deserve to live. You are a cancer, you’re a disease, white males have never contributed anything positive to the world! They only murder, exploit and oppress non-whites! At least a white woman can have sex with a black man and make a brown baby but what can a white male do? He’s good for nothing" - Professor Noel Ignatiev

Obviously, all whites need to be destroyed, but why not start with white males? They are behind most of history’s greatest atrocities. - Professor Noel Ignatiev

Eventually white women can breed out, but my feeling is that if you are a white male, you should kill yourself now. If you are a thoughtful person, with a social consciousness who considers himself white, you will consider suicide. It’s the right thing to do. - Professor Noel Ignatiev

No one has committed violence, genocide and dispossession on the level of white males. The whole purpose of white male culture is to perpetuate their privileged status and continue their oppression of non-whites.  - Professor Noel Ignatiev

Whites don’t have a culture like other races in which traditions and customs are preserved as an expression of a common identity. White culture is an entirely economic and social culture which is about shutting out other people deemed “non-white” as a means of preventing their social and economic advancement! In other words all of ‘white culture’ so-called, stems from hatred of the other, unlike other ethnicities which do have cultures. -  Professor Noel Ignatiev

Eventually, I would like to put white males in concentration camps and work them to death just like they’ve done to everyone else. When they are all dead we can throw a party and dance around their corpses! - Professor Noel Ignatiev

Slavery, genocides against aboriginal peoples and massive land confiscation, the inquisition, the holocaust, white males are all to blame! You maintain your white male privilege only by oppressing, discriminating against and enslaving others!” - Professor Noel Ignatiev

White people are a disease, they are parasites! They don’t deserve to live!  - Professor Noel Ignatiev

You can read the full article via this link:

Though it might sound ok to some people and the points he raised as his reasons for such a call on all white males might be true or can not be disputed to most, if not all non-whites, still it is not the best things to say to any one person or group of people, not to talk of a whole race.

Islamically, we are not to ever suggest clearly or disguisedly that any one should commit suicide, no matter how grevious or unforgivable are his or her atrocities. And yes, I know the Professor is expressing his candid opinion, based on reasons best known to him and that it has nothing to do with anything spiritual or religious, but as a Muslim one must always consider and analyze whatever we come across through the prism of our faith.

In Quran Allaah SWT Says:

Q4:110 - And whoever does a wrong or wrongs himself, but then seeks forgiveness of Allah will find Allah Forgiving and Merciful.

Q12:87 - And never give up hope of Allah's Mercy. Certainly no one despairs of Allah's Mercy, except the people who disbelieve."

Q4:29 - And do not kill yourselves [or one another]. Indeed, Allah is to you ever Merciful.

And the Prophet, Muhammad SAWS said:

"None of you should Wish for death because of a calamity befalling him; but if he has to Wish for death, he should say: "O Allah! Keep me alive as long as life is better for me, and let me die if death is better for me.' " - Bukhari Volume 7, Book 70, Number 575 Narrated by Anas bin Malik

"And none of you should Wish for death, for if he is a good doer, he may increase his good deeds, and if he is an evil doer, he may repent to Allah." - Bukhari Volume 7, Book 70, Number 577 Narrated by Abu Huraira

So, based on the foregoing extracts from both the Quran and Hadith, it is ill-adviced to suggest to anyone to kill himself or herself just because of his unimaginable sins and crimes. Nor should anybody incline towards committing suicide, no matter how undescribable are his or her evil doings. 

Rather, the person should turn to Allaah SWT and seek for forgiveness. As humans, we are not perfect and are full of errors in our actions and reactions. But in Allaah, let any who has hope for the best of a future, turn.
