What do you do when you don’t belong?
A college professor at Bryn Mawr College is speaking out.
If you’re unfamiliar with the school, it’s nestled in the Pennsylvania town of the same name.
Per its “About Us” page, Bryn Mawr’s a “distinguished women’s college” where “students choose from a wide array of majors in the sciences, social sciences, and the humanities.”
And they don’t mess around with injustice:
The College is a leader in academic innovation, with a particular focus on putting learning into action through research, fieldwork, community and social justice engagement, and internships.
Perhaps as part of the stance for social justice, Assistant Professor of Education Chanelle Wilson recently waxed on the value of America and its service to different races.
Amid an appearance on podcast Refuse Fascism — whose logo features a Donald Trump statue being pulled down — Chanelle explained America “didn’t work for black people.”
The same goes for American Indians:
“Damn sure didn’t work for indigenous people.”
“It did not work for people of Mexican ancestry.”
How about Asians, who — as stated by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics — “earned more than their White, Black, and Hispanic counterparts in 2017”?
“It didn’t work for Asians. It didn’t work for Jewish people. It didn’t work for Japanese people. It didn’t work for Chinese people.”
Chanelle’s over the failed experiment:
“We have people who recognize that none of this works for your average ‘American citizen.’ It doesn’t. So why wouldn’t we try something new? This whole experiment is failed. Their experiment has failed.”
But don’t misunderstand — the country has helped one type of person:
“This country is only for white people.”
