MSW student

There has been overt discrimination against me for daring to be a "white male" in an MSW program. I was told by my advisor at a school in Detroit MI that I " was a member of the oppressor class" since I was a 40 year old white male and that I "shouldn't get my hopes up for full time admission." I transferred to another school in the western part of the state. I ran uncontested for the president of the MSW student organization but was told that I could serve in the role because "it wouldn't look right," by a tenured professor who was the faculty liason. In almost every class it is de facto OK to stereotype white men and race shame whites in general. I leaves me feeling disgusted that Marxists have brain washed so many people.
