'Some white people may have to die' TA gets off scot-free after UGA trial

  • A judiciary panel at the University of Georgia cleared a TA of an alleged violation of its code of conduct.
  • The TA previously received backlash for making comments like "fighting white people is a skill."

A University of Georgia judiciary panel cleared on Tuesday a teaching assistant who previously made remarks like "some white people may have to die for black communities to be made whole in this struggle to advance to freedom" and "fighting white people is a skill" of an alleged violation of its code of conduct.

While UGA TA Irami Osei-Frimpong stated that he believed his controversial remarks motivated his trial, the TA was accused of deliberately omitting a 2011 trespassing arrest and his previous attendance at the University of Chicago when applying to the UGA, as Campus Reform previously reported. But Osei-Frimpong released an email from the judiciary panel absolving him of the allegation, according to the Athens Banner-Herald.

The panel reportedly concluded that the TA had neither excluded "facts which are material" from his UGA application or provided the school with false data. Osei-Frimpong made a Facebook post in which he named five UGA administrators.

"According to the investigative report, all of these UGA Administrators had the discretionary power to resolve this situation months ago," Osei-Frimpong said. "Instead, they loaded down a panel of students and one staff person with the responsibility of presenting, adjudicating, and dismissing the Administration's hastily contrived case."

"It strikes me that either each one of these people is very bad at his/her job-- while fleecing taxpayer dollars-- or their job was to hassle me and send a message about how the University Administration retaliates against political speech."

“The Office of Student Conduct adjudicated this case like any other, in compliance with all applicable policies and procedures," UGA spokesman Greg Trevor said, according to the Athens Banner-Herald. "We respect the student conduct process and the outcome.”
