A new video uploaded to YouTube on Tuesday shows a professor at a public university slamming Republicans as old, white individuals who want to keep black people from voting.

The eight minute video, released by college news outlet Campus Reform, reveals Michigan State University Professor of Creative Writing William Penn opening the first day of class with an anti-Republican rant.

“If you go to the Republican convention in Florida, you see all of the old Republicans with the dead skin cells washing off them,” said Penn. “They are cheap. They don’t want to pay taxes because they have already raped this country and gotten everything out of it they possibly could.”

“They don’t want to pay of your tuition because, who are you? Well to me you are somebody,” he continued.

Penn then appeared to accuse the Republican party of backing voter identification laws as a plan for “getting black people not to vote.”

“This country still is full of closet racists,” he said. “What do you think is going on in South Carolina and North Carolina. Voter suppression. Its about getting black people not to vote. Why? Because black people tend to vote Democratic.”

“Why would would Republicans want to do it?” Penn asked. “Because Republicans are not a majority in this country anymore. They are a bunch of dead white people. Or dying white people.”

Campus Reform’s Josiah Ryan said Penn would neither confirm nor deny the recording was authentic in a phone conversation earlier today.

Neither a Michigan State University spokesperson nor Penn immediately responded to requests for comment from TheBlaze on Tuesday afternoon.
