Not someone to be praised. This woman played a role in making my Freshman year of college an absolute hell. She was extremely nasty and passive aggressive toward me throughout the entirety of my semester in her class and for a great deal of time afterwards as well. She would stare me down and cut her eyes at me during class, ignore me when I spoke to her, and also made it a point to laugh under her breath whenever she walked past me on campus. Her unprovoked hostility and nastiness toward me poses an interesting juxtaposition between the pro-black figure that she claims to be. Where was her alleged pro-blackness or love for her people when she was bullying an 18 year old black girl? Several other students can vouch for her behavior as well. I’m not sure this is someone who should be tasked with speaking/working for the community.
