Controversy Surrounds Racist College Park DEI Official

In College Park, Maryland, Kayla Aliese Carter’s appointment as the city’s Racial Equity Officer has stirred widespread public debate following revelations about her social media posts. She was hired to address “systemic racism” inside city government. She is at the center of controversy for sharing online content that supports revolutionary violence and expresses aggressive antagonism toward White people based on their race alone.

Carter’s role, created amid nationwide calls for racial justice following George Floyd’s death in 2020, involves reviewing city policies and programs for racial biases. Her position aims to promote equity across all sectors of local government. However, her approach and public statements have drawn significant attention and criticism.

She has written on social media that she is looking forward to the “collapse of society,” which she claims will allow her “ideology to rise from the ashes.” In multiple posts, she has questioned why Black people should rationalize their violence and anger.

She typically refers to White people as “yT,” and she mocked a coworker for inviting Black people to “tell us what MLK Day this year meant to you.” She responded: “I SWEAR I AM WHEEZING WHO HIRES THESE PEOPLE?” In multiple posts since 2022, she has discussed why she “can’t stand Black” and how she “can’t trust yT people.”

The City of College Park has responded to the controversy. The city manager and mayor have stated that Carter’s personal social media posts do not reflect the city’s values or beliefs. They emphasized that the views expressed by Carter are hers alone and are not representative of the city’s stance. An investigation into her conduct and the implications for her role within the city government is underway.

Carter’s social media history, including her responses to critics and public figures like Elon Musk, has added layers to the public discourse. Musk’s criticism of what he terms “woke ideology” prompted Carter to mock the backlash and even solicit donations from her followers in light of the controversy.

As the city of College Park navigates this complex situation, the broader community continues to deal with the difficult questions of racial equity, justice, and the role of public officials in advocating for change while representing diverse constituencies. The outcome of this investigation may set important precedents for how public servants are expected to balance personal beliefs with their professional responsibilities in increasingly polarized times.
