A University of Wisconsin-La Crosse student has resigned her leadership position in the College Democrats. She made some racist and inflammatory comments that were indefensible.

College Dems leader resigns after declaring hatred of white men
The College Democrats of Wisconsin announced that its vice chair who lashed out against “white men” in a tweet last week has stepped down from her role in the organization.
According to the group, Sarah Semrad, a junior at the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse who allegedly tweeted that “I f***ing hate white men,” resigned her post on the executive board of the political organization as of Tuesday morning.
“She is no longer involved in the organization,” a College Democrats of Wisconsin spokesperson told Campus Reform. “She resigned, and as of this morning, is no longer a member of our executive board.”
Images of Semrad’s now-defunct Twitter account also appear to show the former vice chair making other controversial remarks, such as expressing her disdain for a pro-life group on campus.
“My new bit is tearing down all the pro life Christian pregnancy resource center fliers that they put up around campus to try & trick people,” she allegedly tweeted last month.
Semrad has also been officially removed from the College Democrats of Wisconsin website, where she was previously listed as Vice Chair.
Resigning was the right thing to do. Imagine of she had made these comments about any other race. She probably would have been expelled.
