Muslim Law School Commencement Speaker Targets Whites, Israel

Parents have long been concerned about the far-left agenda behind the curriculum at many colleges and universities — and merely listening to the commencement addresses being delivered at some institutions provides a glimpse into the prevailing mindset.

One recent example involves City University of New York Law School, which invited Fatima Mohammed to deliver an address to the school’s graduating class.

Those who obtained a law degree from the university left with a reminder that the entire profession has supposedly been irreparably tainted by White people.

“I chose CUNY School of Law for its articulated mission [as one of the] few legal institutions … to recognize that the law is a manifestation of White supremacy that continues to oppress and suppress people in this nation and around the world,” Mohammed asserted.

As an ostensible example of her racially divisive theory, she insisted that minorities “are being murdered” every day by authorities on Rikers Island, home to New York City’s largest jail.

Mohammed also referenced the story of a homeless man who was reportedly subdued by a former Marine and later died after witnesses said he was behaving erratically and threatening other passengers.

She asserted that New York Democratic leaders had “dignified” the “murder of Black men like Jordan Neely by a White man on the MTA,” though she provided neither context regarding the incident nor clarification about what she meant.

For good measure, the commencement speaker took a shot at Israel by touting CUNY Law School’s support for the “boycott, divest, and sanction” movement and accusing Israel of “murdering” people.

The university reportedly considered preventing the dissemination of Mohammed’s speech in response to concerns that its content was antisemitic, but the Council on American-Islamic Relations’ New York chapter applied its own pressure in the form of a public denunciation.

CAIR-NY Executive Director Afaf Nasher wrote, in part: “We strongly condemn the apparent decision by CUNY Law to remove Fatima Mohammed’s commencement speech, particularly considering its focus on social justice and the plight of the Palestinian people under Israeli occupation. Academic institutions should embrace robust discussions on international issues, including human rights, without fear of censorship or reprisal.”
