“YOU CAN’T MAKE THIS STUFF UP”
A student and graduate assistant at the Chicago School of Professional Psychology was proud to announce on Twitter that she was grading papers based on students’ race.
WHAT HAS SHE LEARNED IN COLLEGE?
The “Intolerable Racism Is Fine As Long As You’re Not White” mantra has been playing so long that a graduate student who participated in grading papers was completely comfortable posting this completely intolerable tweet.
“Grading papers for my mentors and I’m giving these white students a runnnnn (sic) for their grade honey!!,” Denisha Maddie posted. “The exam is on race.”
According to ijr.com:
The tweet from the private and now-inaccessible account has since been deleted, according to a statement from the school:
“We are aware that recently a person affiliated with The Chicago School of Professional Psychology posted a tweet on their personal account that runs counter to our internal policies related to grading, as well as our core values. The Chicago School does not agree with, or condone, such sentiments or behavior. Several actions have been taken in response. To date, the post has been removed, and we have started our internal processes to address the situation.
Our university’s policies related to grading are very clear: only faculty members are responsible for reviewing and submitting final grades for all student assignments.”
“The Chicago School has a 40-year history of respecting individual differences, and advancing the principles of inclusion and equality,” Michele Nealon, President of The Chicago of Professional Psychology, said in the statement.
“We have always been committed to addressing every such issue, as it provides an opportunity for sincere dialogue, and the further advancement of difficult yet crucial social justice topics,” Nealon added. “We are consistent in inviting and embracing difficult conversations that allow us to advance our mission on topics related to multicultural diversity and inclusion.”
