Student Columnist Defends His Op-Ed Celebrating ‘White Death,’ Says It Isn’t Racist

THE COLLEGE FIX — A Texas State University student is standing behind his recent controversial op-ed published in the campus newspaper that argues “white death will mean liberation for all.”

Student Rudy Martinez has come under fire for his Nov. 28 column in The University Star titled “Your DNA is an abomination.” The editor in chief of the campus newspaper has even issued an apology over its publication.

In a clever play on the Heine quotation, the unknown writer, almost certainly one of the killers, has substituted “Belsatzar” for Heine’s spelling “Belsazar,” in order to signal even more clearly his intended symbolism. The Heine inscription described the racial/ethnic character of the murders: A Gentile king had just been killed as an act of Jewish retribution.”
