Prep School Forces Black Student Body President to Resign After She Posted This Picture Mocking Her White Student Peers
A student at the country’s most expensive prep school was forced to resign as student body president after she was caught blatantly mocking the majority of the school’s students. Maya Peterson, who claimed to want to create a “truly unified and diverse community” at Lawrenceville School — but then posted a picture mocking white students.
According to BuzzFeed, this image of her fellow male students took aim at them as being both white and Republican. She also added hashtags like #romney2016, #confederate, and #peakedinhighschool.
Both students and faculty found the image offensive and in March, just three weeks after she posted it on Instagram, officials reportedly told her she would be disciplined if she chose not to resign as student body president.
“You’re the student body president, and you’re mocking and blatantly insulting a large group of the school’s male population,” one commenter wrote on the photo.
Peterson, the school’s first black, female student body president, responded with a message that likely only heightened tensions.
“Yes, I am making a mockery of the right-wing, confederate-flag hanging, openly misogynistic Lawrentians,” she wrote. “If that’s a large portion of the school’s male population, then I think the issue is not with my bringing attention to it in a lighthearted way, but rather why no one has brought attention to it before…”
Despite this response, Peterson also said the photo was only a joke meant to respond to critics who had complained over her senior photo – a picture that featured her and 10 friends raising their fists in a “Black Power” salute.
These scenarios, though, only accounted for a portion of the tension that had unfolded, as students had also complained about her in the past. One student sent photos of Peterson smoking marijuana to the dean. And last winter, an anonymous source sent half-naked photos of Peterson to the entire freshman class.
There was also a Facebook post Peterson purportedly wrote after Obama’s election that sparked controversy. It read: “As a black and Latino, gay woman in the United States of America, today is a momentous day. I’m sorry to all the rich white men who have failed to elect a president that endorses their greed.”
… “I understand why I hurt people’s feelings, but I didn’t become president to make sure rich white guys had more representation on campus,” she said of the controversy, according to BuzzFeed. “Let’s be honest. They’re not the ones that feel uncomfortable here.”
It’s interesting how she complains about misogyny, but has absolutely no problem whatsoever engaging is misandry. Peterson, being the good liberal she is, is perfectly content to not only engage in racist and insulting mockery towards fellow students, but to do it while claiming she wants unity and diversity. Well, which is it, Peterson? Are only certain points of view allowed? Liberal fascists like Peterson just love to fight for “diversity”, but the only diversity they care about is skin deep. Diversity of thought, diversity of opinion or politics or religion? Well, that’s dangerous, and just not allowed — people should only be allowed to think the way that Peterson and her ilk tell them to.
