George Washington University Student Group Boots Latino for Pointing Out Hypocrisy

Calling out inconsistencies means that you’ll be booted from a student group:

This month, incoming George Washington University freshman Diego Rebollar was kicked out of an online “students of color” GroupMe created to offer support and camaraderie. The block came after Rebollar pointedly questioned whether white students would be called racist if they created a similar group.

“I’d be willing to bet a good amount of money that if somebody made a ‘GW whites’ group me, there would be a sizable number of angry people. Just saying,” he had posted. GroupMe is a mobile group messaging app and is not controlled or managed by campus administrators.
