White Girl Passes Out Fliers “Why White Women Should Date Black Men”

Published On June 4, 2017 | By patrice | The latest posts

After seeing several fliers floating around her school campus, which were titled “Why White Women Shouldn’t Date Black Men,” one student of Southern Methodist University decided to retaliate with her own fliers that spoke on why “White Women Should Date Black Men.” However, little did she know, her flier later ended up having her on disciplinary probation.

“They handed me one of the hardest punishments you can get on SMU,” Emily Walker, 25, told WFAA.

Walker says that the school conducted an investigation that lasted for several months because she’d chosen to distribute up to 150 fliers, but she also believes that the punishment that she’d received wasn’t fair considering that she was only attempting to combat against the previous racist flier that was floating around her school.

“I was like, ‘I’m a white woman. I’m going to show the author, ‘No, sorry buddy. You didn’t win,'” Walker said.

Walker, who studies advertisement at SMU, says that she was working as an athletic trainer just last year and saw how the “Why White Women Shouldn’t Date Black Men” flier had a negative impact on the Black athletes.

“It hurt the Black young men on our campus,” Walker told WFAA.

The student posted the fliers in November and was notified by the school about her probation months later.

“If you do one thing wrong, you could be suspended and off this campus,” Walker said. “I’m walking on thin ice.”

She claims that her fliers added to the hostile environment that existed on campus, yet she still says that she only did it to uplift the black students that attend her school.

As for any disciplinary action taken towards the makers of the original racist flier, SMU spokesperson Kent Best wrote to WFAA, “The university does not disclose information about student disciplinary matters in accordance with the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act.”
