Alvin Lee

Alvin Lee is a Human Resources Training Specialist at Purdue University. In Management 301, Lee taught his class that the phrase, “America is a melting pot” is a microaggression. He also added phrases such as “Where are you from,” “There is only one race, the human race,” “Everyone can succeed in society if they work hard enough,” and “I believe the most qualified person should get the job” to the list of offensive statements. He claims that white people can not be “color blind” and should be forced to recognize race. Instead of attempting to encourage unity, he would rather encourage divide and play “diversity bingo” to highlight our racial differences.
