University of North Dakota ‘appalled’ after second racist pic in three days is exposed
The school is now being forced to investigate yet another incident of white female students who put on blackface and posted it on social media with the caption “Black Lives Matter.”
One facebook user posted the picture and tagged UND saying, “the problem is growing worse here at UND.”
Earlier this week, University of North Dakota students stole an African-American student’s phone and posted photos of themselves in blackface with a caption reading “Locked the black b*tch out.” It referred to the fact that the girls locked the fellow student out of a dorm room.
The school’s president released a statement Thursday saying that he is appalled that within 48 hours two photos surfaced of students in blackface mocking the African American community.
I have been disappointed to learn that we have people in our university community who don’t know that the kind of behavior and messaging demonstrated in these two photos is not ok, and that, in fact, it is inexcusable… It is abundantly clear that we have much work to do at the University of North Dakota in educating our students, and the entire university community on issues related to diversity, inclusion, and respect for others.
Waiting on the bullshit apology and “we arent racist” statement. #Hate it!
