Meet Iris Liu, the vice president of Claremont McKenna College’s student body, who just got a dean fired and a student to resign from student government over appearing in a photo on Halloween.
Liu, a senior, is an anti-white bigot who ironically just accepted a position working with the very white Boston Consulting Group. She is also student body vice president of Claremont McKenna College. She pressured another student to resign her position in the student government over being photographed alongside other students wearing sombreros for Halloween.
Here’s how the local student newspaper describes her role leading up to Halloween and afterward:
When the ASCMC Senate gathered for its 9pm meeting on Monday night, Executive Vice President Iris Liu ‘16 bypassed the regular agenda to go straight to Open Forum, in order to make time for an extended discussion of the incident and related issues.
Leading up to Halloween, posters were put up across campus showing examples of culturally insensitive Halloween costumes with the message, “Our cultures are not costumes.” In addition to the physical posters, Liu emailed the images to the entire student body before Halloween, writing, “You may have seen these posters around campus. They are part of a campaign by CMC’s Title IX office to prevent cultural appropriation, slut shaming, and sexual assault this Halloween.”
Liu even compared wearing the Halloween costume to sexual assault:
In terms of shifting norms, Iris Liu noted, “This is analogous to sexual assault. What I think the community now generally considers as undeniably wrong, as rape and sexual assault, that was not the case three years ago,” during her freshman year. “CMC at large and the administration have taken a stand combatting sexual assault,” Liu explained; “that is something we haven’t seen as far as supporting students of color.”
Liu also led a brainstorming session that demanded Mary Spellman, the dean of students, be removed. She quickly resigned and made national news.
While Liu ran for vice president she ran on a platform of inclusion but today her views are decidedly anti-white.
Here are her anti-white postings.
We reached out to the Boston Consulting Group to let them know about Liu’s apparent troublesome racial animus toward white people. We will update it if and when we hear back.
Here’s the twitter handle: @bcg.
We reached out to Liu earlier today and yesterday on Facebook and have not heard back.

And watch the real racism on campus against those who dare to speak for themselves.
