Conservative college professor Mike Adams was found dead in his home on Thursday. This comes after Adams was forced into retirement by the University of North Carolina, Wilmington.
Police have not released the cause of death yet and speculation has been swirling about the 56-year-old’s passing.
The news comes after Adams had settled with the University of North Carolina to the tune of $500,000 in exchange for his retirement.
The university forced the issue after Adams issued the following tweet.
This evening I ate pizza and drank beer with six guys at a six seat table top. I almost felt like a free man who was not living in the slave state of North Carolina.
Massa Cooper, let my people go!

It didn’t take long for critics of Adams to jump on his death and highlight the problems they had with him. One of his former colleagues, Professor LJ Randolph Jr. jumped on the news to attack Adams.
“Please do mourn Mike Adams’s death, but don’t sugarcoat his rhetoric as merely ‘controversial’ or ‘racially charged.’ He was blatantly racist, homophobic, and sexist, and his own words left no room for interpretation on any of that.” There’s nothing like someone’s death to make allegations of racism, sexism, and homophobia.
