White Student Government Leaders Resign from Their Positions Because of White Guilt

The President and the Vice President of the University of Connecticut’s Undergraduate Student Government recently stepped down from their posts.

And they did so because of white guilt.

VP Alex Ose stepped down last week, according to a report from The Daily Campus. She alluded to “the climate and incidents of racial injustice across the country and at the university.” But as Greg Piper of the College Fix noted she did so “without elaborating on what’s wrong at UConn (or why she can’t address the perceived problem as an elected official)”.

As it is, they are just giving up one virtue-signaling position for one that will look better on their activist resume later, without really costing them anything.
