STUDENTS OF CLC, YOUR ADMINISTRATION IS COMPLICIT IN THE DEGRADATION/INTIMIDATION OF YOUR BLACK PEERS:

We are demanding the resignation of , and . Student Council President , , and Press Secretary  deliberately used their white privilege to harass, threaten, and intimidate their black classmate, Leila Manthi, using racial slurs and nearly getting her expelled from the College of Lake County.

Here’s what Happened:

, current, is a documented racist. She has been witnessed calling Leila Manthi a n*gger, as well as using the n-word ON CLC Campus SEVERAL times with no disciplinary action brought forth from CLC. Some of these instances were in front of multiple black students   used hate speech and racially charged intimidation against Leila both prior and during Leila’s campaign for Student Body President. This behavior is unacceptable and racist.

, current  and employee of CLC, is complicit in the racism of her classmate and, with the aid of and , documented Leila’s private thoughts and feelings about her experiences as a black woman and the racism she faces on a daily basis. She then used this documentation to aid the presidential campaign of, as well as attempting to get Leila expelled from CLC. Though unsuccessful, the experience of being persecuted by her peers for expressing her private feelings was traumatic and humiliating.

, current Student Body President and employee of CLC, colluded with  and 

to win the presidential election for herself by trying to get her competition expelled from campus.  has made no attempt to conceal her racism, stating “I’m not colorblind, but why focus on the minorities? They’re the smallest piece of the pie chart”. As well as stating that they (herself and ) “have a target on [Leila’s] back”, while miming a dart being thrown at a random black passerby’s back, and that “[Leila’s] crossed a line”, in being vocal about the racism she experienced in the Student Government Association.

In addition to this we are demanding that CLC administration release the Presidential Debate Tapes between candidates: Leila Manthi, , and a third candidate.overt racism will not be tolerated, and her affronts to the black community must be publicly documented immediately. #ReleaseTheTapes
