Just when it seemed like infamous Fresno State professor Randa Jarrar might’ve learned her lesson and stopped making controversial posts on social media, she did it again.
Jarrar, a tenured English professor who previously boasted about her job security at Fresno State among many things, demanded in a Twitter post Tuesday that white editors resign.
The article goes on to state the following:
Jarrar’s Twitter account is on a private setting, but Campusreform.org apparently was able to take a screen shot of her post.

“At some point, all of us in the literary community must DEMAND that white editors resign,” wrote Jarrar, according to Campus Reform. “It’s time to STEP DOWN and hand over the positions of power.
“We don’t have to wait for them to *** up. The fact that they hold these positions is **** up enough.”
According to the Washington Times, Jarrar reportedly was responding to the controversy surrounding a poem written by Anderson Carlson-Wee and published in The Nation.
After backlash about the poem, The Nation’s poetry editors apologized and called it a “serious mistake” to have it published in the magazine.
The poem later was deemed by the editors as culturally insensitive and “ableist,” which is discrimination and social prejudice against people with disabilities.
Jarrar already had been facing backlash for her comments in April about former first lady Barbara Bush and the Bush family.
Within an hour of Bush’s death, Jarrar went on a Twitter rant and said she wanted to dance on the former first lady’s grave.
