A registered nurse from the US state of Indiana has sparked an outrage after accusing "white women" of raising sons who are more likely to become "killers, rapists and terrorists" when they grow up.

The reason behind the rant was not clear, but the black woman is facing an inquiry and has reportedly been removed from the hospital where she worked as a nurse.

"Every white woman raises a detriment to society when they raise a son. Someone with the HIGHEST propensity to be terrorist, rapist, racist, killer and domestic violence all-star," Taiyesha Baker wrote on Twitter.

She then went on to add, "Historically every son you had should be sacrificed to the wolves. B****."

The disturbing rant was first posted from an account named "Night Nurse" and later retweeted by many others. The original tweet was deleted soon after.

The account's Twitter handle is @tai_fieri and was linked back to Baker.

On Sunday (26 November) afternoon, a spokesman for Indiana University Health released a statement confirming that Baker was an employee, but has been removed from her services.

The hospital, however, did not specify the clinic where Baker was working. She was issued a nursing license on 30 October, it added.

"IU Health is aware of several troubling posts on social media which appear to be from a recently hired IU Health employee," the hospital reportedly stated.

It added, "Our HR department continues to investigate the situation and the authenticity of the posts. During the investigation, that employee (who does not work at Riley Hospital for Children) will have no access to patient care."

This is not the first time when a black person has blamed white people for attacks and assaults that took place in the recent years. Several white police officers have come under fire in the recent months over killings of black people, triggering mass protests under the banner, "Black Lives Matter".

During an interview with Democracy Now! on 6 November, George Ciccariello-Maher, a Drexel University professor, questioned why mass shootings in the US are almost always carried out by white men.

The 38-year-old asserted that "this is a question that we all need to grapple with: When you see these cases of sort of mass—this shocking mass brutality, what is it that makes white men so prone to this kind of behaviour?"

The professor was condemned for blaming "whiteness" for the Texas massacre that killed 26 people and injured 20 others on 5 November.
