An Ohio State University student in a student government position is meeting criticism for claiming he thinks Black people are “superior.” The Undergraduate Student Government parliamentarian made the controversial statement about Black supremacy while speaking at a General Assembly meeting in late March. Third-year student John Fuller, who majors in human development and family sciences, said while presenting a resolution on the General Assembly floor to denounce anti-Critical Race Theory legislation that hopes for a world where “Black people were taught that they are superior” as he “full-heartedly believe[s].” [tweet_embed] April 14, 2022[/tweet_embed] Before the remark, Fuller said white people learn through lived experiences that they’re naturally superior while black people are not taught in schools that they’re superior. “I would love to live in a world where black people were taught that they are superior. I would love it because I full-heartedly believe that,” Fuller said on March 23, according to The Lantern. “But that's not the case.” Fuller claimed during his comments on the floor that White supremacy is a “relatively new” and "heavily debated” term that's not taught because “a lot of people don’t like calling White people superior.” He added during the meeting, “That by taking away the teaching of one race as superior to another, that is inherently white supremacy because white people learn from birth that they are superior. There is nothing that they need to be taught in school that tells them that.” USG President Jacob Chang told the student newspaper that once Fuller stated, General Assembly speaker Bobby McAlpine ignored the parliamentarian, emphasizing that the chamber does not support his rhetoric.

Chang said it’s the governing body’s "responsibility” to report the case, adding that multiple senators thought of impeaching Fuller for his conduct, but the impeachment process would not have concluded before his last day working in the current USG Administration.
