Black Professor Punches Out a White Colleague in Conversation Over Race

Filed under: black news, black professors — Staff @ 12:35 pm

A prominent Columbia architecture professor punched a female university employee in the face at a Harlem bar during a heated argument about race relations, cops said yesterday.

Police busted Lionel McIntyre, 59, for assault yesterday after his bruised victim, Camille Davis, filed charges.

McIntyre and Davis, who works as a production manager in the school’s theater department, are both regulars at Toast, a popular university bar on Broadway and 125th Street, sources said.

The professor, who is black, had been engaged in a fiery discussion about "white privilege" with Davis, who is white, and another male regular, who is also white, Friday night at 10:30 when fists started flying, patrons said.

McIntyre, who is known as "Mac" at the bar, shoved Davis, and when the other patron and a bar employee tried to break it up, the prof slugged Davis in the face, witnesses said.

"The punch was so loud, the kitchen workers in the back heard it over all the noise," bar back Richie Velez, 28, told The Post. "I was on my way over when he punched Camille and she fell on top of me."

  1. First,the phrase “Black scholar” is an oxymoron.
    How predictable it is to see understanding and empathy when a Black man chimps out and strikes a white,or even a white female.
    When one considers all the failed social programs to mainstream blacks into American culture,the failed attempts at integration that results in frustrated blacks and white students being attacked or worse(along with a dumbed down schools),when you consider that blacks are largely incapable of living in a free society without a Chinese menu of welfare programs to keep them from living in grass huts and engaging in cannibalism,you have to come to the conclusion that we must separate the races.
    It’s funny,the racist hicks in the south who resisted attempts at integration were vilified and ridiculed for their position,but time has certainly proven them prescient.
