The educator at the university in Waltham/Boston, Massachusetts defended the ‘critical race theory in her post and wrote, “Yes, all White people are racist in that all White people have been conditioned in a society where one’s racial identity determines life experiences/outcomes and Whiteness is the norm and the default. That includes me!” She continued, “I don’t hate white people – I hate whiteness.”
People were quick to slam Slater on her controversial post on social media. Tweets like, “How can she teach anti racism if all whites are racist? What a moron. She should give up her cushy job to a person of color, get a new job in the hood to help people. This nut case is teaching, ” began to pour in. “@BrandeisU If Kate Slater says all whites are racist including herself she should be fired. Why would Brandeis employ a self-professed racist?” asked one social media user.
“@BrandeisU I am a graduate with two teens. I am ashamed of your hire of Kate Slater. She is a racist. My children will never attend Brandeis. You have taken a tragic turn, ” shared another on social media.

Some other tweets read:
“@BrandeisU what an ignorant person. Stating that 100% of people are anything based on their skin color is racist. If Kate Slater hates herself so much that’s fine but she only speaks for herself. But I wouldn’t want my kids going within 10 miles of her poison, ” and “She is an extremist and they all stick together. Her racism is unacceptable and should be fired. No parent should want to spend hard earn money to tell their child their parents and they are racist because they are white.”
