A recent column in Texas State University’s student-run paper, The University Star, has created a huge controversy on campus.

 

The piece, entitled, “Your DNA is an abomination,” targets white privilege in society.

 

In the piece, the author, Rudy Martinez, states that he has met very few white people he considers “decent.”

 

Since its publishing, Texas State University President Denise M. Trauth has condemned the piece as a “racist opinion column.”

 

The piece has since been removed from publication.
