A student has resigned from her college’s Student Assembly Thursday, citing white privilege and the “hostile environment” created by white men in the student government group.Crazy people in the news.
Hamilton College student Katherine Barnes resigned from her position as class representative for Hamilton’s Class of 2020 this week and explained her decision in an article on Hamilton’s student newspaper The Spectator.
“During last week’s meeting, many student representatives countered my argument that ‘the vast majority of members are white, straight, cis, upper-class men,’ by stating that 11 out of the 30 members are white men,” said Barnes. “While my assumption that these white men are also straight, cis, and upper class may be wrong, many people on campus perceive that Student Assembly is controlled by white males.”
“This is because the majority of the conversation in Student Assembly meetings is dominated by those 11 people.”
