So...a non-white "Latina" goes to a predominately White school, proceeds to sh!t on the White attendees for being 'privileged,' and is shocked--SHOCKED, I tell you--because she was called out. And then they burned her stupid book.

The book was required reading for some of Georgia Southern's First-Year Experience classes, according to the university.
