Yet another example of the double standard in the USA.

Hmm, I guess you guys missed the part where nearly EVERYONE, black, white, and everything in-between, were leaving because she dismissed them. Everyone was loud due to the confusion. No one was technically being rude for leaving since she dismissed them but to single out certain people erroneously is pretty ridiculous.

Well, thankfully she lost her job. Beyond her comment, her whole demeanor was just a disgrace (what sort of administrator forgets to allow the valedictorian to give their speech?).

I caught the part where she says she made a mistake and is asking people to sit down and listen to the valedictorians speech, did the **** not understand that part? What is the excuse for the baboon antics?

The entire audience was leaving both black and white however,some unbeknown reason she only singled out the blacks and not the not whites for leaving. If you watch the video you will notice after making that offensive remark all the black graduating students stood up and marched out in unison. This wasn't an orchestrated act. It was rehearsed. hese individuals were clearly agitated by her words and it showed. She clearly made a mistake but she compounded that mistake by disparaging a entire group of people.

I didn't see anyone fighting, what were those so called "baboon antics"?

Bigotry isn't going to get her job back, keep being mad.

Word. The Blacks were the only one making noise and leaving, every White person in that room remained silent and seated.
