New Emerson College Dean Has History of Writing Anti-White Columns

Printed from:

If you don’t like white people, that’s not a problem at Emerson College.

The left-leaning liberal arts college in Boston recently gave a promotion to one of its employees who has a history of disparaging white people on the basis of their race.

The school announced recently that Kim McLarin, professor of creative writing and director of the school’s master’s of fine arts graduate program in popular fiction writing and publishing, will serve as the college’s interim Dean of Graduate and Professional Studies, beginning January 1, 2022.

The press release from the school explains that she will serve in the role until the school finds someone to permanently fill the position.

“As interim dean, she will work with deans and faculty across disciplines to strengthen existing graduate programs and establish new ones, as well as focusing on the advancement of Professional Studies programming,” wrote William P. Gilligan, interim president of Emerson College. “She will also be the primary contact for graduate student government and graduate student development.”

This is the same Kim McLarin that in 2019 wrote a column for The Washington Post headlined “Can Black Women and White Women Be True Friends?”

Her answer to that question:  No.

She wrote, “Generally speaking, it’s not that I dislike white women. Generally speaking, it’s that I do not trust them. Generally speaking, most black women don’t.”

Last month for The Sun Magazine, she wrote a column titled “On White Violence, Black Survival, and Learning To Shoot” in which she reveals that she recently got a license to carry a firearm out of fear of white violence against her in Boston.

In it, she fantasizes about spraying bullets at crowds of white people in a race war and killing them.

“If a civil war breaks out, I say, if violent white mobs begin roaming the country as they have done in the past, I will not worry about precision shooting,” McLarin wrote. “I intend to sit on my porch with my legally acquired handgun and as much ammunition as I have and perhaps a bottle of Scotch and take them as they come.”

And in a 2006 New York Times column, McLarin revealed that she had recently told a man that she couldn’t date him because he was white. Here is the exchange she included with a man named Jerry:


“I can’t see you again,” I said.

He blinked with surprise. “Why?” he said, finally.

I used my bayonet:  “Because you’re white, and it costs too much for me to date a white man. It cost me to be married to a white man for 13 years. I can’t do it again.”

“That’s ridiculous,” he said, after a minute. “That’s the most ridiculous thing I’ve ever heard.”

“Which proves my point,” I said. “It’s not ridiculous.”

“You can’t be with any white man?”

“No, I don’t think I can.”


Gilligan, the interim president of Emerson College who appointed McLarin to the new position, last month decried the right-of-center Turning Point USA chapter at the school for “racist bigotry” for handing out stickers that said “China Kinda Sus,” which suggests that the country’s authoritarian government is “suspect.”

Gilligan and McLarin could not be reached for comment over the weekend or on Monday this week.
