Charles Negy Wiki – Charles Negy Biography

Charles Negy is an associate professor of psychology at the University of Central Florida, who touched off a firestorm with a series of Tweets last week about so-called “black privilege” — Tweets that were widely condemned as racist.

Negy published the controversial comments amid nationwide protests over the killing of George Floyd in Minneapolis police custody and the backlash extended to calls for his firing. One commentator said that Negy’s “racism has been an open secret” on the UCF campus for years.

Negy has claimed that he is being silenced, contrary to the idea of free speech. Meanwhile, UCF senior Eva Oliveri has started a petition calling for Negy’s firing, the Tampa Bay Times reported.

Negy has taught at UCF since 1998, according to his biography on the college’s website. His areas of research include the impact of race and ethnicity on how people perceive domestic violence, social identity theory vs. multicultural theory in college students and “comparing the marital relationships of Mexican couples with relationships of Mexican American couples.”

Charles Negy’s Book

Charles Negy book

He is the author of “White Shaming: Bullying Based On Prejudice, Virtue-Signaling, And Ignorance,” which, according to its description, argues that “white shaming” is a form of bullying and attacks so-called “virtue signaling” among whites. The title is currently unavailable on Amazon and Barnes & Noble.

Outrage

Many were outraged on June 3, when Negy compared African Americans to Asian Americans, using the two groups to question the existence of “systematic racism.”

He followed that up with a Tweet promoting an article that claimed “Blacks are our sacred cows,” acknowledging that the article may “infuriate folks,” but insisting that “black privilege” means African Americans are “missing out on much-needed feedback.”

“Hilarious,” Negy wrote. “Okay, Whiteys. Get on your knees and start atoning for being white. While you’re at it, start sharing your paycheck with random [person of color] and donate your house to a POC.”

Outrage quickly followed online. One man wrote that his daughter, a high school senior, would not attend UCF as long as Negy worked there. A woman claiming to be a former student of Negy also wrote that he was judgmental, offensive, and “extremely condescending” in the classroom.

A Change.org petition followed, with more than 24,000 signing it as of Monday morning.

Negy claimed

Negy claimed on Saturday that he was a victim of censorship and encouraged his followers to complain to Amazon.

Negy has claimed that he is being silenced, contrary to the idea of free speech. Meanwhile, UCF senior Eva Oliveri has started a petition calling for Negy’s firing, the Tampa Bay Times reported. Negy went on to claim that “no one cares” when black teens “needlessly stab to death a white college student,” while when a white person kills an African American, “the world comes to an end.”

Video

He also on June 2 retweeted a video in which a white woman is approached by someone claiming to be with “the company” Black Lives Matter and asked to get on her knees to atone for her white privilege.

“Hilarious,” Negy wrote. “Okay, Whiteys. Get on your knees and start atoning for being white. While you’re at it, start sharing your paycheck with random [person of color] and donate your house to a POC.”

Negy Defends Himself

Negy told that he is “pro-equality,” but there is no “easy way” or “gentle way” to address difficult problems without offending people — or people “feigning to be offended.”

“In class, I prepare students a lot for what they are about to experience … Some will get offended. But that is not my intention,” he said, adding that Twitter is a “different can of worms.”

“Things are said, often callously … The problem is some people disapprove of me expressing unfavorable things about their group,” he said. “I get that … If we can’t address our most pressing social challenges with regard to race relations and air how different people view matters differently, we’ll never solve America’s “big race problem.” Blaming non-White groups’ challenges on “white privilege” (or whites) will not solve anything.

Negy also told the New York Times by email that he had no plans to resign.

“Despite what so many ‘haters’ are saying about me on Twitter, I’ve never said ANYTHING critical of George Floyd,” Negy wrote, according to the Times. “The man was murdered in cold blood by a man who was a total sadist. So cruel.”
