An Ohio State University student leader is facing criticism from other students for a comment he made at a student government meeting in March, saying he “would love” to live in a world where “the Blacks have learned that they are superior”.

John Fuller, who was a member of the Ohio State University Undergraduate Government General Assembly at the time of the meeting, made the comments while introducing a resolution to condemn any anti-criticism legislation on the theory. of race, according to the OSU student newspaper, The Lantern.

At the March 23 general meeting, Fuller said white people are learning that they are “superior” to other races and would “love” to see that change.

“I just wanted to say and clear things up, the only people who are taught that they are superior to another race are white people,” Fuller said. “And I would absolutely love to live in a world where black people learn that they are superior.”

Fuller said he “wholeheartedly” believes that black people are superior.

“I would love that because I believe in it with all my heart,” he added.

Fuller said removing the teaching of one race as superior is white supremacy.

“Removing the teaching of one race as superior to another is inherently white supremacy,” Fuller said. “Because white people are taught from birth that they are superior, there is nothing they need to learn in school that tells them that. They learn that from their lived experiences.”

Fuller later repeated his original assertion, saying “I believe black people are superior”.

Undergraduate student government president Jacob Chang told the student newspaper that the comments were “deviating from our values.”

“The comments made during the General Assembly session are fundamentally different from our values ​​as a student government in the state of Ohio,” Chang said. “Therefore, it is our responsibility to report a case like this. I think we need to stand in solidarity with all people of color and anyone who suffers from racism, but we have to do it from a space that unilaterally empowers everyone around them, instead of singling out a group.”

Chang told the student newspaper that senators had considered impeaching Fuller, but said the process would have passed Fuller’s last day in office, which was April 6. He said that when Fuller made those comments, General Assembly Chairman Bobby McAlpine dismissed him.

A student government website still lists Fuller as a General Assembly parliamentarian.

Several members of student government reported the comments to the Office of Institutional Equity.

As the resolution condemning the anti-criticism race theory legislation passed, Chang said Fuller framed it in a way that showed “another form of similar supremacy,” saying his comments were ” inherently racist”.

“No matter what race you are, what background you come from, you can’t say things like that,” Chang said.

A spokesperson for Ohio State University told Fox News they are looking into the matter.

“The university is aware of this matter and is in the process of reviewing it. Ohio Senate Bill 40, which became law in 2020, and the First Amendment to the United States Constitution prohibit expressly instructs state universities to restrict the peaceful exercise of free speech rights,” the spokesperson said. mentioned.

Fuller did not respond to Fox News Digital’s request for comment.
