Cambridge University academic Priyamvada Gopal revealed Thursday that she was promoted to a full professorship after receiving backlash for stating that “White Lives Don’t Matter.”
Gopal this morning announced on Twitter that she’s “delighted” to reveal that “last night Cambridge promoted me to a full Professorship.”
Thanks to everyone who wrote to @Twitter: the ludicrous ban has been lifted. I am therefore delighted to share with you personally, that last night Cambridge promoted me to a full Professorship. The hate mails & threats are coming in non-stop but @CambridgeCops are following up

Gopal said Monday on Twitter: “I’ll say it again. White Lives Don’t Matter. As white lives.”
“Abolish whiteness,” Gopal said in a follow-up tweet.
Not surprisingly, Gopal received a lot of pushback and a Change.org petition was signed by over 19,000 people demanding she be fired.
Nonetheless, Cambridge responded with a statement defending their academics’ “right” to express their “lawful opinions” which others “might find controversial.”
Sorry. No data so far.
The University defends the right of its academics to express their own lawful opinions which others might find controversial and deplores in the strongest terms abuse and personal attacks. These attacks are totally unacceptable and must cease.

Though Cambridge rushed to defend Gopal’s right to say “White Lives Don’t Matter,” last year they rushed to sack academic Noah Carl for conducting “problematic” research criticizing incest and studying the relationship between immigrants’ nation of origin and their crime rates.

Gopal’s treatment also stands in stark contrast with that of Jake Hepple, who on Monday flew a “White Lives Matter” banner over a soccer match in the UK with no apologies.

Hepple and his girlfriend were both fired from their jobs and two GoFundMe campaigns set up to help them were shut down for “racism.”
Jake Hepple has been dismissed from his role at Paradigm Precision. His misses lost her job as well.
The company have distanced themselves from his actions.
Hepple’s employment has been terminated with immediate effect.

Saying “white lives don’t matter” gets you a promotion in the UK but saying “white lives matter” gets you fired from your job and hailed as a pariah and yet according to the media’s narratives the UK is a “white supremacist” country.
Is this what they call “systemic racism”?
