No, it's racist to pin negativity on one group when both are doing it. Another video from further back CLEARLY shows white people leaving. These whites got up FROM THE FRONT right in her eyesight.

But of course, the ghetto rat of a woman has to be cantankerous and make it racial.

Do you think there should be some focus on the accuracy of her statement as whether she was right or not that the people who were leaving are all or mostly blacks?

Ever been to college graduations? This happens all of the time. As soon as thier child recieves thier diploma, they get up and leave. I have seen this at MANY college graduations.

While the remarks aren't racist alone (they are racial, though, but the two are not the same), they do make me question the principal's views on race. Why was it necessary to bring race into the equation here (and, note, there were obviously plenty of black families/students who DID NOT leave the auditorium, judging by the reaction of those who remained once the principal made such a foolish statement)? I submit that it wasn't, and that it wouldn't shock me if this woman ultimately is a racist to bring up such a point.

Well, you could read the thread. Or watch the longer video. Or read an article (linked to in this thread) about it. Then you, like the rest of us (excepting the racists on CD who will rush to defend any white person being blatantly racist), would know too and wouldn't need to come on here and attack everyone else.

You want someone to attack? How about attacking the racists on here who have rushed to defend this despicable woman and assert that what she was saying was 1) factual and 2) not racist, despite video evidence and clear indication that what she said was 1) not factual and 2) blatantly racist?

Just wanted to point out if it hasn't already, that the reason people were leaving and talking was because the principal and already dismissed everyone, which is why she said it was her "mistake."

Also, this took place in a metro Atlanta suburb that is majority black, so of course some black people were leaving, probably more of them than white people who were leaving (which you can plainly see in the video some white people did leave).

I personally felt that the lady is a nut and shouldn't be an administrator of a school. She was very disrespectful and obviously inept being she couldn't follow a graduation ceremony program.

Also, you all should read her son's FB page where he drops "n" bombs and dares people to come to his house (gave out his address and everything) over what his mom said.

Evidently she is an old school southern racist IMO.
