Noel Ignatiev was an American history professor who earned his Ph.D. from Harvard in 1995.  

As part of a group of social scientists and geneticists that views race distinctions and race itself as a social construct, he is best known for his call to abolish the “white race” (meaning “white privilege and race identity”) while being the co-founder of the New Abolitionist Society and co-editor of the journal Race Traitor.  

His position is positively stated in his website’s motto: “Treason to whiteness is loyalty to humanity.”
