A freshman orientation retreat at Texas A&M University devolved into a debate over diversity after a student complained that there were too many white students in a group photo.
According to its mission statement, Fish Camp “strives to welcome freshmen into the Aggie family by sharing the traditions and values of Texas A&M University and creating a universally accepting support system that allows them to build relationships and embody the Aggie spirit.”
“I tweeted that because I am sick and tired of people judging each other based on the color of their skin.” Tweet This
Despite this welcoming message, some students feel that the camp is not diverse enough, and one student made those feelings known with a sneering post on social media.
“LOOK AT ALL THIS DIVERSITY,” Hispanic TAMU student Cynthia Mendiola sneeringly captioned a tweetfeaturing group photos of this year’s Fish Camp participants, quickly garnering hundreds of likes and retweets and subsequently sparking a large online debate.
