A student at University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey has made an interesting discrimination claim. Paulo Serodio says that he was harassed and suspended for calling himself a “white African-American” because he was born in Mozambique and later became a U.S. citizen.
Serodio says that teachers and students became enraged by his description during a classroom discussion of cultural diversity and that he was harassed with mocking posters and told to stop using the term to describe himself. He was later suspended for “conduct unbecoming” a student.
