James Livingston, a white Rutgers University professor of history, went on a racist rant against white children and their parents Thursday after visiting a Harlem restaurant.

What did he say?

Livingston, irritated by the very presence of white children at a local Harlem restaurant that he apparently frequents, penned a rant on Facebook that was captured for posterity by The Daily Caller.

The post targeted young, white children as “little Caucasian a**holes.”

According to the outlet, Livingston wrote, “OK, officially, I now hate white people. I am a white people, for God’s sake, but can we keep them — us — us out of my neighborhood? I just went to Harlem Shake on 124 and Lenox for a Classic burger to go, that would [be] my dinner, and the place is overrun with little Caucasian a**holes who know their parents will approve of anything they do.”

He added, “Slide around the floor, you little s***head, sing loudly, you moron. Do what you want, nobody here is gonna restrict your right to be white.”

“I hereby resign from my race,” Livingston concluded. “F*** these people. Yeah, I know it’s about access to my dinner. F*** you, too.”

Anything else?

On Friday, Livingston revealed that Facebook had removed his prior-day posting and attempted to clarify his remarks.

“I don’t get the FB threat thing against me because as far as I can tell, my page is intact, including my earnest, angry, and ridiculous resignation from the white race,” he wrote. “As if I could! Calling Noel Ignatiev.”

“Who am I kidding?” Livingston continued. “The FB algorithm conjoins the words ‘race’ and ‘hate’ and designates the origin, which would be me, as a problem. OK, God knows I am. But not in this regard.”

He concluded, “I just don’t want little Caucasians overrunning my life, as they did last night. Please God, remand them to the suburbs, where they and their parents can colonize every restaurant, all the while pretending that the idiotic indulgence of their privilege signifies cosmopolitan — you know, as in sophisticated ‘European’ — commitments.”

On Sunday, Livingston went on to admit that he’d received myriad messages — approximately 30, according to Livingston — about his posting — and said that some of the messages even contained threats of “bodily harm.”
