On December 18, 2020 in a Tagesspiegel interview, Dr. Auma criticized the lack of diversity at German universities, including the underrepresentation of People of Color. Since then, she has been subjected to persistent racist attacks by the AfD parliamentary group of Saxony-Anhalt. These attacks have also claimed that Dr. Auma practices reverse racism.
