(THE COLLEGE FIX) -- A Creighton University professor of theology recently referred to an Omaha, Nebraska pro-law enforcement “Back the Blue” demonstration as a “white supremacist rally” which would “showcase Midwestern racism.”
It’s not known what prompted Professor Zachary Smith to make the tweet; he’s since deleted not only the tweet in question but his entire Twitter account. He did respond to a Fix inquiry about his comments.
The “Back the Blue” event, scheduled for Saturday morning at the city’s Memorial Park, will feature speakers and music performances.
