Latina Faces Backlash as Miss Coppin State

February 6, 2023

Keylin Perez recently became the first Latina to be named Miss Coppin State University, and the reaction at the historically Black university has not been good, The Baltimore Banner reported.

She says she has experienced extensive cyberbullying from Black students.

“I knew that it would happen when I first decided to run. I knew it might take this route. I just tried to remain focused on what I have done for the university. It makes me feel better,” she said.

Eighty percent of Coppin State’s enrollment is Black. Only 3 percent of students are Latino.
