The fact that anyone, especially a Dean of students would say this about a group of students is horrifying. Dean Spellman was obviously implying that students of color do not fit CMC’s white student mold. What’s just as horrifying is hearing a student validate the Dean’s words and agreeing with her racist statement. As if students of color didn’t already feel a sense of insecurity, danger, and other-ness. They didn’t need to hear something like this from ANYONE, let alone their Dean of Students.
