University of Florida is forced to apologize after black and minority grads were SHOVED off stage

University of Florida is forced to apologize after black and minority graduates were SHOVED off stage by a white faculty member while they celebrated

<snip>



"The University of Florida is facing allegations of racism after a faculty member forcibly yanked several minority students off the stage during their graduation ceremony.

Shocking video shows the graduates walk across the stage to receive their diplomas as their names are called.

But when some students take a moment to do a celebratory dance, a white male in regalia aggressively grabs them to move them along.

The videos has sparked outrage by alumni, parents and current students who claim the staff member was only physical with black and other minority students."

Time for a dance off to prove my hypothesis.

2. Someone should ask this man the following question:

What was it to you? If they took a couple of seconds to be excited, did it cost YOU one f***ing thing!

This faculty member is an asshole. He should be the one doing the apologizing.

4. Daily mail doesn't seem to know what they are talking about.

In the same article the person is said to be a faculty member and they also call him a staff member.
I very much doubt he is faculty.
