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.'

That’s a girl?

I’m white, and not even one molecule offended. Only weak people get offended. She should not have been dismissed.

We are a nation of fools.

The former black student body president

If "she" is a former black, what is she now?

Too stupid to be embarrassed about being so stupid.

Quote from the article:

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.’

Black, Latino, “gay” and clearly stupid. What a combination. She also has bad tattoos and gauges in her ears. Yep, she’s the one you want to take home to mom and dad!

First sentence in the article; “The former black student body president at a pricey New Jersey prep school”

Then later far down in the article: ‘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.

OK, she was not the president of the Black Student Body, but the entire student body.

So is she now white? Or Asian? Did she go the Michael Jackson route? Ir is this just another example of piss poor writing from a professional writer?

OK, if they elected her student body president, then
they got what they wanted.

Let her stay on as president—it might be a good lesson for later life about being careful who you vote for.

Good for the school. She’s racist, no double standard, no more student body presidency for her.

Although she was racist when when she was elected - and an openly racist white student wouldn’t have been elected.

Article says her family paid the full 53K/year tuition so she’s not a scholarship diversity kid.

But I bet she’s nailed her Yale/Brown/Smith admittance and scholarship by being booted off student council.

I’ve known more than a few black kids from respectable, two-parent, middle class families who decided to “go ghetto”. Never did try to figure it out.

I know something of these schools - they are definitely looking for diversity - students of color - and will happily pay scholarship money to skim the cream and then feel good about themselves, and I knew a comfortably professional two income black mother (married, husband also professional) whose daughter got a free ride at one of the nearby schools.

A very expensive Catholic school admissions officer talking about how they gave scholarships based on financial need to girls from certain towns, that is, largely black towns, yay diversity, nothing about scholarships for traditional Catholic families with eight children.

Anyway, if you can pay the full ride at Lawrenceville Prep, I figure your child has a real good chance getting in, race and grades being not as important as they otherwise would be.

Racism is racism no matter who speaks it.

At one time, England ruled India with an iron boot. They belittled the people as "woggies", they took the riches, they beat the poor. Gandhi advised his people to be excellent...to be noble, to be peaceful, to be intelligent, to exceed, and to generally show the Brits that the inhabitants of India were NOT sub-humans, were not evil, that by their very virtue, they would make the hated rulers come to see that everyone has value, that everyone can be great. And the Brits changed, and left. That kind of racism was suffocated by virtue.

If we actually TAUGHT history in our schools; if some black pastors actually PREACHED the Gospel of Jesus Christ; if some "community organizers" (agitators) actually CARED about the people they represent, rather than the votes or the money they can get through them...we might see racism gone in America in a generation. Idiots like this woman keep it alive, because they make reasonable humans like me look at the face of race hatred and say "You? Respect is earned by action...why should I respect a hate-filled viper like you?"

Why in the world do so many black people insist on being the same kind of sad racists that many white people used to be? If people like this would just be American, not mining old hatreds, things would change much faster.

MLK Jr. said he "had a dream" of a world where people would be judged on the contents of their hearts, and not the color of their skin. We say that my daughters "have no black friends." We say this because, of course, she doesn't see color. She has friends...who are black, or asian, or you name it. And if haters like this woman would work to be excellent, to be smart and not mean, to be kind like MLK and Christ preached...everyone would be like my daughters. SHOW me your greatness, insprire me, impress me. Stop BEING the kind of person that I now sometimes, sadly, expect you to be.

Yes, MLK said everyone should judge people by the contents of their hearts. I do this every day. I judge this woman to have a wicked heart, a cruel heart, a hating heart. Of course, this judgement on her heart...instantly, magically, eternally, somehow transforms into the assumption that I am judging her skin. Yep, when I say "this is hateful behavior", she is supposed to get a pass, because...well...EVERYBODY knows what I REALLY mean. And by virtue of her exterior, she is free to act horribly. I tell you, just like the last two elections...the most racist thing you can do is excuse evil based on the color of someone's skin. Dear, grow up, drop the rock, live your own life. My people figured out that hate is an ingestive cancer some time ago. When are you going to?

And by the way, your President sat in a pew for 20 years in a church where the "pastor" preached race hatred...and smiled as the congregation was polluted by hate. He was married there, his daughter grew up there, he stayed because it gave him power and political influence.

If MY pastor said from the pulpit, "Black people are evil devils!" I would first stand and challenge him using the Scriptures, I would then urge the congregation to condemn him, and if they would not, I would leave and never look back. Your President sat there and did nothing, which tells me everything I need to know about him. And today, and every day, when I condemn him for the contents of his heart...you know it...I am called a racist, because that is the only card that people like you have left to play. Sorry, he is at best a bad Christian, at worst a closet Muslim, and you are as filled with error and hatred as he is.

It’s not “a little kidding,” it’s juvenile and malicious, and while I wish a white male student body president would not lose his position over these kinds of remarks, he most certainly would. And since he would, she should as well.

I'll have to go with chicks.

The boi spelling sort of points in that direction, not to mention how many preppy guys would want to bring that train wreck home to daddy and mummy, including those with trust fund moon bats as parents.

The ex was prep, and she told me that in the late 1970s, the guys' Bean boots, maybe Tops-Siders too, had to have ubiquitous silver duct tape holding at least one of the pair together for that stylistic dash of panache.

I agree. And when I say I don't get it, I really, really don't get it. I admit I am completely out of touch on college fashion, but those pictures don't look "racial" in any way, black or white. And they don't at all look like it is trying to be insulting. They look like a modelling job for Sears or something. I don't see anything offensive here at all.
