Grad student admits lying about being black, resigns teaching position

What is it with these progressive girls lying about their ethnic background? Guess Elizabeth Warrent set a fine example for them.

From NY Post: A graduate student at the University of Wisconsin-Madison has apologized and resigned from their teaching job and worker’s union leadership position after years of embracing “lies” about their racial identity.

CV Vitolo-Haddad, who uses the non-binary pronouns “they” and “them,” admitted that they are actually Southern Italian and Sicilian — not black or Latino, which are both labels they accepted when peers allegedly assumed they were a person of color.

“When asked if I identify as black, my answer should have always been ‘No,’ ” Vitolo-Haddad wrote Sept. 8 in the second of two confessions on Medium. “There were three separate instances I said otherwise.”

“I have let guesses about my ancestry become answers I wanted but couldn’t prove,” Vitolo-Haddad previously said in an apology published Sept. 6 on Medium. “I have let people make assumptions when I should have corrected them.”

In the second missive, Vitolo-Haddad added, “I want to apologize for ever taking lies about Cuban roots at face value, and for subsequently attaching myself to people’s perceptions of me as though it would provide answers where there are none.”

Vitolo-Haddad, who has railed against conservatives’ views about race, declined an interview with the Wisconsin State Journal, which first reported the story on Saturday. However, in a series of text messages, Vitolo-Haddad told reporters, “I repeated things I heard growing up from my family that I now know to be lies. I am so sorry. I take full responsibility for spreading these lies and am deeply sorry.”

I suppose they feared being labeled as ‘racists’ if they they denied being what people presumed they are.

‘Scuse me,but I only saw ONE person in the picture,did “they” have a mouse in “their” pocket? (Sorry,but this non-binary business is just an attempt to draw attention to an otherwise unremarkable person,and I’m done with it.)

When gender is unknown, it is proper English to use the male. Since there is only one person in this instance, who does not choose to use the female (obvious) pronoun and rejects the male (default), does then that make ‘it’ the correct, singular choice?

All that to say, I fully agree! ‘Non-binary’ is ridiculous and therefore fully deserving of whatever ridicule we choose to heap upon those who reject the regular use of accepted linguistic protocol.

What prompted Vitolo-Haddad’s attack of conscience? Was her lie about to be outed?

The difference between Italy and Africa is just a short boat ride!
