University of Wisconsin-Madison graduate resigns from teaching job after lying ...

A University of Wisconsin-Madison graduate student has resigned from their teaching role after admitting they have been lying about being black.  

CV Vitolo-Haddad, who identifies as non-binary, admitted they pretended on multiple occasions to be black or Latino when they are actually Southern Italian and Sicilian.  

Vitolo-Haddad said they failed to correct peoples' assumptions about their racial identity, 'entered Black organizing spaces' when they should not have and recounted three times when they didn't say no when others asked if they were black.  

Vitolo-Haddad confessed to the deception in two Medium blog posts where they apologized for 'every ounce of heartbreak and betrayal' they caused and announced they were standing down from their teaching assistant job at the university as well as their role as co-president of the Teaching Assistants' Association (TAA).

The revelation comes weeks after white George Washington University associate professor Jessica Krug was publicly shamed after she admitted she had been pretending to be black her entire career.

Vitolo-Haddad published a blog on Medium on September 6 apologizing for taking some 'very wrong turns' and deceiving people over their racial identity.

'In trying to sort through parts of who I am, I've taken some very wrong turns. I never really owned up to them as they became apparent, nor recognized the trail of damage behind me,' Vitolo-Haddad wrote. 

The grad student said they had let people make assumptions on their ancestry and did not correct them. 

'I have let guesses about my ancestry become answers I wanted but couldn't prove. I have let people make assumptions when I should have corrected them,' Vitolo-Haddad wrote. 

They vowed to make 'amends for every ounce of heartbreak and betrayal' caused by their false claims. 

In a second follow-up Medium post on September 8, the graduate student in the School of Journalism and Mass Communication gave specific examples where they had deceived others about their racial identity and went into detail about their own confusion over identity.  

Vitolo-Haddad said they are Southern Italian/Sicilian but 'went along with however people saw me'.
