Grad student resigns from teaching position after admitting lying about being black

by Paul Goldberg

CV Vitolo-Haddad, a graduate student at the University of Wisconsin-Madison has admitted to not being black and resigned after years of lying about their racial identity.

According to the NY Post Haddad “who uses the non-binary pronouns “they” and “them,” admitted that they are actually Southern Italian and Sicilian — not black or Latino, which are both labels they accepted when peers allegedly assumed they were a person of color.”

Haddad wrote in a Medium post “I want to offer a clear statement about my identity, the wrongs I’ve done, and a give concrete apology.”

Haddad also wrote “First, I am deeply sorry and regretful to the people I deceived by inserting myself into Black organizing spaces I didn’t belong in. That deception was parasitic and harmful.”

Haddad also admits “When asked if I identify as Black, my answer should have always been ‘No.’”

Just 2 weeks earlier, George Washington University professor Jessica Krug also resigned after admitting to lying about being black her entire career.
