“Every white woman raises a detriment to society when they raise a son. Someone with the HIGHEST propensity to be a terrorist, rapist, racist, killer, and domestic violence all star. Historically every son you had should be sacrificed to the wolves. B****,” Baker tweeted.
A spokesmen for IU Health released the following statement to Fox 59 on Sunday afternoon.
