This is actually news to me. Minorities and White alike sat through our ceremony at every school I attended. No one got up to leave.

It is not just minorities who leave early or cause a disturbance when their graduate crosses the stage.

However, it is much, much more common. Don't take my word for it- just watch at the next college graduation you attend. IT IS HILARIOUS.

Her son is a low life meth dealing/using thug who was recently arrested as a felon in a possession of a firearm to go along with his already lengthy background. South Gwinnett is full of white people just like him and his mom. PWT to the fullest

LOL again. I have been to many a graduation at high schools, middle schools, and colleges - both mainstream and at HBCUs (Historically Black Colleges/Universities).

All sorts of people leave after their graduate gets their degree/diploma. Black people aren't more likely to leave at all and on what would you even base that presumption on???

If you watch the full video of the OPs situation you will see that the person filming is black! They are sitting next to other black people. There are white people in front of them. The video shows a white family leaving even before the lady says "look who's leaving, all the BLACK people!'

That was the funniest part about it to me. After that, of course all the black people left. I know I would have. I wouldn't sit and let some crazy lady who can't follow a HS graduation program lecture me about rudeness when she is going on a rant during a graduation ceremony, ruining the moment for the kids and their families.
