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. “Let’s be honest. They’re not the ones that feel uncomfortable here.

What Happens When A Prep School’s Black Student President Mocks Her White Male Classmates - Buzzfeed

Read the whole thing but the TL;DR is that a black lesbian was elected to student body president at Lawrenceville (boarding school in NJ), she faced harassment in her time as president including an incident where photos taken of her half-naked in her room were sent to the freshman class, and she posted a photo of herself dressed up in preppy white boy clothes with mocking hashtags on instagram and got removed from office for it. 

A major issue here seems to be that many members of the Lawrenceville community are confused about what racism actually is. Mocking a group of privileged white men isn’t racist. Racism requires power—like the type of power that allows you to force the removal of a person from an elected position simply because they hurt your feelings.
