There are two reasons why someone might call for the death or dismemberment of another person: They might be desperate for attention and realize that they will be heard. Or, they could be soulless cretins who enjoy the pain of others.
Uju Anya, a professor at Carnegie Mellon University, appears to have been motivated by a little of both when she posted a tweet — since removed by Twitter — “I heard the chief monarch of a thieving raping genocidal empire is finally dying. May her pain be excruciating.”
This was also tweeted out by her
If anyone expects me to express anything but disdain for the monarch who supervised a government that sponsored the genocide that massacred and displaced half my family and the consequences of which those alive today are still trying to overcome, you can keep wishing upon a star.

OK. We get it. Colonizers, rapists, slavers, oppressors…the list goes on and on. But in every religion, of every race, in every corner of this planet, good people know how terribly, terribly wrong it is to wish someone’s death to be painful. Even good secular humanists would have trouble justifying a wish for a painful death.
Uju Anya does not make a good person. She is miserable, living a life of misery and “quiet depression” and wishes for the death of all those she believes she has wronged.
Who should be executed for the crimes of her countrymen?
Many people of Nigerian descent like Uju Anya and Dr Shola conveniently forget that Nigerians were selling slaves before white people arrived and indeed there are still slaves in Nigeria today. Britain abolished slavery in 1833 and thousands of British sailors died freeing slaves

A second tweet was deleted:
The wretched woman and her bloodthirsty ruler are ***** descendants of my ancestors on both sides. My parents and siblings survived genocide, but she was also in charge of a government that supported it.
It does not need to be “Christian charity” or forgiveness. It does not have to be “Christian charity” or forgiveness.
This isn’t the first time the publicity-hungry professor has been in trouble.
Nearly 800 people signed a petition to get her fired.
It stated: “Dr. Ujuanya cannot be permitted to use Carnegie Mellon University Department of Modern Languages platform for systemic racism through her use of blatant ethnic insults in social media to refer Foundational Black Americans.
“This is a significant step backward in our fight against systemic racism and discrimination. Institutions that allow professors to use the language of people of color against peoples are a step backward. ”
“Society must hold everyone equally accountable. We appeal to Carnegie Mellon University to take action to end this behavior and preserve the reputation of the Higher Learning Institution.”
Elizabeth did not commit those terrible acts against anyone or any place during her 70-year reign. These people can accuse Elizabeth of being unable to sympathize with the sufferings of others or having an indifferent attitude toward the bloody history of Africa.
It is wrong to make Elizabeth responsible for sins that she or her government has not committed. This government has very little authority under Elizabeth.
