    I don’t think Cailtlin Hewit-white has the right to write about misery of people of colour or feminism as she is as racist as it gets. She subordinates women of colour in any situation. she treats women of colour as is they are her subordinates and should serve her on their hands and knees and she does use her white privilege and the fact that she is allowed to speak about racism to hide her deep deep racism.
    How dare she writes about racism. at University of Guelph she treated people of colour like second class citizens and anyone objected to that was targeted by her in more than one ways.
    She talks about the misery of people of colour and by doing that she gains “credibility” then uses that credibility to push around people of colour. She is nothing but an evil racist.
