Carmen Goséy wants you to know that her university is full of racists.
Goséy is the outgoing chair of student body government at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, whose predominately white student population she accuses of one major flaw: She believes all white people are racist.
UWM, which boasts in-state tuition fees of over $25,000, is being attacked by Goséy in a letter filled with racist beliefs while simultaneously accusing her entire school of racism.
She goes on to say that she, as a black student, was used as a token by the white supremacists.
No reason given, and no explanation as to why a bunch of racist white supremacists would want a black student in charge of anything, let alone to stand as their symbol.
This is part of her letter, as reported by the Daily Cardinal:
“I was operating in a white position as a person of color,” Goséy wrote.
“Now I see the University was not designed for the success of minority communities; it was designed for white students to learn about my oppression while not having to participate in dismantling it.”
Goséy wrote about the privilege most students have on UW-Madison’s predominantly white campus and stated that “all white people are racist.”
For Goséy, her leadership position on ASM made her “a token for white supremacists.”
In a final insult to the school from which with she is apparently fine in accepting a degree, she writes (emphasis mine):
“I have struggled with the juxtaposition of my identity and representing a campus that does not look like me or remotely relate to my experience,” Goséy wrote.
In addition to asking students of color on campus to consider their place at UW-Madison, she argued that parents of people of color should think twice before sending their kids to the university.
Her entire letter was printed on Facebook here.
John Hawkins’ New book ‘101 Things All Young Adults Should Know’, he teaches in chapter 85 of the book that you are not a victim.
If only Carmen had read this before racking up over $100,000 in fees to attend this prestigious four year university!
