Women should NOT be forced to feed their babies in a bathroom, all because we live in a misogynistic, porn-warped society that’s been brainwashed to believe that female breasts used for anything other than male pleasure is “indecent”. Support public breast feeding and end the porn culture.

First female black student-president at nation’s most expensive prep school is forced to resign after ‘offensive’ photographs of her mocking ‘typical white classmates’ emerge online

The former black student body president at a pricey New Jersey prep school was forced to resign from her leadership position earlier this year after she posted a series of photos on the Internet, in which she is seen dressed as what she describes to be the typical male, white student at the school.

In the photos, former Lawrenceville School Student Body President Maya Peterson is seen wearing L.L. Bean duck boots, a Yale University sweatshirt and is holding a hockey stick, which she says is representative of the typical ‘Lawrenceville boi.’

In addition to the photos, she added hashtags like ‘#romney2016,’ ‘#confederate,’ and ‘#peakedinhighschool.’


Peterson explains that the photos were meant as a joke in response to complaints made by students about her senior photos, in which she and 10 friends - all of whom were black - are seen raising their fists in a ‘Black Power’ salute. 

'I understand why I hurt people’s feelings, but I didn’t become president to make sure rich white guys had more representation on campus,' she told the website. 'Let’s be honest. They’re not the ones that feel uncomfortable here.'

Some of Peterson’s classmates, however, didn’t see the humor in her ‘racist’ photos.

'You’re the student body president, and you’re mocking and blatantly insulting a large group of the school’s male population,' one student commented on the photo.

Peterson’s response to the comment only made things worse.

'Yes, I am making a mockery of the right-wing, confederate-flag hanging, openly misogynistic Lawrentians,' Peterson responded. 'If that’s a large portion of the school’s male population, then I think the issue is not with my bringing attention to it in a lighthearted way, but rather why no one has brought attention to it before…'

Both students and faculty members felt the images were offensive, and that ‘it was not fitting of a student leader to make comments mocking members of the community,’ Dean of Students Nancy Thomas told the Lawrenceville student paper.

Peterson’s take on race has irritated her classmates in the past, as well.

In 2012, following the re-election of President Barack Obama, Peterson wrote on Facebook about how proud she was that an African-American was president - and threw in a sarcastic jab at white people.

'As a black and Latino, gay woman in the United States of America, today is a momentous day,' she wrote. 'I’m sorry to all the rich white men who have failed to elect a president that endorses their greed.'

Some of her classmates felt the Facebook post was racist.

'I’m gonna have to assume from your political beliefs and what you’ve said that you do not pay for your Lawrenceville tuition in its entirety,' one student wrote. 'But do you know who pays for that? Yeah, that would be all those greedy white men who actually worked for their fortune, not relied on the government to support them. Just saying.'

Peterson’s family paid full tuition at the school.

Peterson’s getting elected student body president worried many of her classmates, as they believed she was alienating a large portion of the student body with her controversial comments about white classmates

One former student said Peterson’s photos - and overall attitude, ‘violated the spirit of the Lawrenceville community.’

'It was hateful. It wasn’t inclusive,' the student, identified only as David, said. 'When I think of Maya Peterson, I don’t think of someone who is an avid proponent of progress or of inclusiveness. I think of someone who is hateful. She had a hateful spirit.

Lord look at this madness

I SUPPORT MAYA PETERSON!!!!

I have never felt more love for someone that I have never met than I do for this young woman.  I thought she would apologize but in the boldness of her reasoning I saw no lies.

Maya Paterson for some public office in the future?  Presidency maybe..

Blackface African parties: Silence

Native American mocking parties-Silence

Urban Black culture mocking parties-Silence

Black woman with a hockey stick-OMG REVERSE RACISM!!!

I honestly believe she was making a point and their reaction made her point perfectly. 

MAYA PETERSON 2016!

She was basically making a point.

White folks proved her point.

End of discussion.

screw president, can she become empress of Earth.

I have found my queen

“‘I’m gonna have to assume from your political beliefs and what you’ve said that you do not pay for your Lawrenceville tuition in its entirety,’ one student wrote. ‘But do you know who pays for that? Yeah, that would be all those greedy white men who actually worked for their fortune, not relied on the government to support them. Just saying.’”

If there was ever clearer evidence that “reverse racism” is just a way for racists to detract attention away from actual racism: I really don’t want to see it.

Racism is racism. If she wanted to make a point she could have done it in a much more professional and intelligent way

Just shut the fuck up.

Like, seriously?

Do you think what she did is in any way comparable to the disgusting racist comments made about her? Or to the racism prevalent in universities nationwide? Or to racist ass theme parties? Or to any aspect of institutional racism?

Do you think white men are being denied jobs because of stereotypes that they like Lacrosse? Do you think white men have to worry about police harassment when they leave the house in polo shirts? Calling this racism is so fucking pathetic, good god. Pointing out racism is not racism. Having a laugh at those who are institutionally granted power and privilege over you isn’t racism. Lashing out against someone for doing those things is.

Are you seriously calling this woman “unprofessional” or “unintelligent”? Fucking seriously? What is even wrong with you? A person who dealt with some seriously vile racist shit decided to poke fun at those who perpetuated that racism and was met with a response that was disgustingly racist and you’re upset with HER?!

You are truly a miserable, boring, shit of a person.
