Video: Professor Urges Students to Break Laws

A fist with the word HATE written on the fingers.

Albert Ponce, a professor from Diablo Valley College, thinks we must tear the whole system down because some people aren't doing as well as others.

And he wants your kids to handle the dirty work.

In a video posted at The Red Elephants, Ponce can be seen lecturing to a class that only white people should be standing for the National Anthem. Further, he argues that minorities should break laws they believe are unjust.

"[T]here were people here, the indigenous people, who were part ... who paid a price, a very heavy price, for this project that is unfolding of white supremacy," Ponce says.

Ponce continues: "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."

Of course, Ponce then reveals who his views are shaped by: Karl Marx. Ponce says Marx was "one of the most profound thinkers in the history of Western philosophy."
