Cue Twilight Zone Music

Ex-Student Says NJ Medical School Discriminated Against Him

New Jersey's University of Medicine & Dentistry expelled a Caucasian immigrant from Africa, Paulo Serodio.

Because, on his application, he declared himself to be of African American ancestry. Told by school officials that he couldn't be African American because he is white, Mr. Serodio stuck to his guns and that was that.

The irony, among many of course, is the fact that in his country of birth, Mr. Serodio was a minority member. He was white. Moved to America, became a naturalized citizen, and in effect lost the right to even mention his former country because to do so would be insensitive to "real" African Americans.

Can't make this shit up.
