Imagine being a college tour guide, excited to show prospective students around your campus, only to be blindsided by someone's racist assumptions. That's exactly what happened to a 19-year-old student who was mistakenly assigned to a group of low-income students because of her race and her father's veteran status. The young woman, who is actually the daughter of a successful executive, was left to field questions about financial aid and support for disadvantaged students – topics she knew nothing about. 😣 Let's dive into this shocking story and see how it all unfolded.

A Shocking Display of Racism 😡

This young tour guide's experience is a prime example of how assumptions can lead to uncomfortable and offensive situations. Assigned to a group of low-income students based on her race and her father's veteran status, she was left to answer questions she had no knowledge of. When confronting the DEI girl responsible for the mix-up, she was met with a shocking display of racism. Despite the DEI girl's insistence that the tour guide should have corrected her assumptions, it's clear that the real problem lies in making such assumptions in the first place. Let's take a look at some of the reactions to this jaw-dropping story... 💬
