Racism in an Irish University by Tracy Cullen, Secretary Derry Anti-Nazi League
NAZISM IS alive and well and living in Ireland. At least that is what members of the Anti-Nazi League in Coleraine and Derry have been forced to conclude, after investigating the “research” carried out by Richard Lynn.
Lynn is a Professor of Psychology at the Coleraine campus of the University of Ulster and head of the “Ulster Institute for Social Research.” In February 1992, he received $50,000 (£33,000) from the Pioneer Fund, an American trust fund which promotes the view that white people are genetically superior to other races.
Lynn hid himself and failed to deliver a lecture in Coleraine on Monday 21st February after about 40 Anti-Nazi League protesters turned up outside his class. The response to the information leaflets which the ANL protesters gave to Lynn’s students was amazing. A few students defended him. But the overwhelming majority welcomed the protest.
