As a white person, you can’t picture what it’s like to go through the feels that racism causes when you get caught cutting and pasting from the internet. Luckily, you have people like (((Diana Bruk))) to tell you this sad tale of woe.
Tiffany Martínez is a first-generation college student majoring in sociology at Suffolk University in Boston. She is a McNair Fellow, a Dean’s List recipient, and has presented at national conferences all over the U.S.
On the morning of Oct. 27, her professor handed her back a paper she’d written wrote and announced, in front of the entire class, “This is not your language.” At the top of the paper were the words, “Please go back and indicate where you cut and paste,” presumably meaning the professor believed Martínez had plagiarized passages.
I helped my kid one time with an essay assignment at school. Well, I helped him a little too well and his teachers called him up and asked him about it. When pressed they said, “We’ve seen your work before…”. I think this applies here. The Professor has undoubtedly seen her work before and can tell right off this was a cut and past job. Of course, being a proud first generation college student who has grrrrrl power and is super capable, she took her lumps like a trooper….and cried racism.
Do you even know what it feels like esse?
Martinez responded by writing a blog post critiquing the racial biases apparent in such a judgment, and her disappointment at living in “a society where people like me are not set up to succeed”
They have colleges in Mexico, yet she is blessing us with her presence in our college and how does she get repaid? With racism, in 2016. SMDH
My last name and appearance immediately instills a set of biases before I have the chance to open my mouth. These stereotypes and generalizations forced on marginalized communities are at times debilitating and painful. As a minority in my classrooms, I continuously hear my peers and professors use language that both covertly and overtly oppresses the communities I belong to.
She doesn’t seem at all like someone who will blame everything on racism, not at all. The feels she feels are so debilitating she probably has a hard time even getting out of bed in the morning. She’s so oppressed in American college, it’s just sad.
Therefore, I do not always feel safe when I attempt to advocate for my people in these spaces…
I thought you were in college to get an education? However not anymore, she’s there to advocate for HER people. I honestly don’t see how these proposition nation retards go through life believing that anyone can become an American just by being on the magic dirt. If she were white and used the term “my people” she would have already been expelled or at the very least, forced to take cultural sensitivity classes.
.My professor assumed someone like me would never use language like that.
He’s seen your work before.
How many degrees do I need for someone to believe I am an academic?
You’re majoring in sociology so color me less than impressed.
Martinez’s paper did not have a grade, only the words, “needs work.” Hence, Martínez ended her blog post with quite the literary mic drop: “Academia needs work.”
So you get called out for cutting and pasting but it’s all everybody else’s fault because racism. I know I have this white privilege thing and all but TBH compared to every other races privilege it seems to be a bit lacking to me.
BuzzFeed reports that Martínez “has not spoken with the professor since the incident, but has brought it to the attention of the chair of Suffolk University’s sociology department, who has launched an investigation.” In particular, the department’s head read over her paper, Martínez added, and “had nothing but good things to say.”
Jews at Buzzfeed get paid to wright about this kind of crap while you’re out there laboring away to make it to your next paycheck. Let that thought sink in a bit. I’ve said this before and I’ll say it again: the American University system is beyond repair. The whole thing needs to be nuked from orbit and rebuilt from the ground up, taking special care to exclude all Marxists and Jews. So in the end, this girl will get a passing grade and probably an award of some sort and the Professor will get reprimanded and sent to cultural sensitivity training. And people wonder why colleges are turning out morons. I hope everyone out there reads this story so that any future business that finds this chronic race whiner turning in an application will know not to hire her. I can’t help but laugh when people whine about the things I say being racist because they are pro white. Look, everyone is looking out for “their people” as Ms. Martinez says. It’s high time you white people realize this and get in the game because as things stand now, you’re all standing on the football field with your baseball mitt wondering what the hell is going on. If you keep standing there, you’re going to get run over.
