A hot racist mess masquerading as a Smith College alum who as the President of her local Smith College Club, INTERVIEWS POTENTIAL STUDENTS, had the sheer gall of whining to the college paper about how her alma mater isn’t white enough.
There are some PHENOMENAL responses to her ridunculous letter including one by a Lola W:
Dear Anne Spurzem,
In the Sophia Smith Archives, one can find a letter written to President Neilson by a well-heeled society woman and Smith alumna. In it she complained about the rising number of Jewish women who were being admitted to Smith in part because they were all so unattractive and all looked exactly the same.
President Neilson, in his infinite wisdom replied (to paraphrase): I’m sorry that your Smith education failed you so terribly.
I am not the President of Smith, but to you, my fellow alumna, I offer you a similar sentiment.
That said, I was totally reminded of a character from this Oscar-nominated film:
This past weekend I had the honor of presenting on a panel on Social Media at the SAALT South Asian Summit sponsored by SAALT.org and the Washington College of Law. After three+ days of inspiring stories and insights, the final day of the Summit was rounded out with a trip to Capitol Hill for a meeting with Congressional representatives.
A group of well-dressed brown people at the Capitol is not a usual occurrence, so leave it to someone to call it in as terrorism. Check out the above blog and you too will see why there needs to be more civil discourse regarding bias and racial profiling, as well as a political pledge to eliminate inflamed and hateful rhetoric on our airwaves.
