Albert Ponce is a professor of political science at Diablo Valley College. Ponce recently made headlines when as a guest speaker at the DVC’s Social Justice Lecture series he called for the “abolition of white democracy”  and encouraged students to abolish white supremacy. “Abolition means we must destroy it, not reform it. No voting is going to help. No writing your congressperson. We need to smash white supremacy,” said the professor. “That’s the beauty of the law—if you write it, you can convince all of us to follow it. Just like all of us do today. When you shouldn’t. Many of the laws existing—we should be violating those laws. We are taught to get up and to pledge allegiance to the flag every single day,” said the Professor. “The flag is not really representative of everybody who is standing up in that room. Maybe that’s the way it should be taught. All those who this flag represents stand up, and maybe 50 percent of this room, you remain seated down because this is not for you,” he said. (1)

Video footage of the professor’s controversial lecture has gone viral (2) and students have posted it to a Facebook page called “Film your Marxist professor”. (3)
