University of Alabama Expels White Woman After She Posted Racist Videos

A White woman student from New Jersey at the University of Alabama was expelled from the educational institution after she posted videos on social media where she repeatedly used the word “nigger.” In one video, she says, “I love how I act like I love Black people because I fucking hate niggers.”

In a second video posted after negative comments were received on her original post, the woman said, “I’m in the South now, bitch. . . . So I can say nigger as much as I want.”

In a statement, a university spokesperson said that “these remarks are ignorant and disturbing and in no way reflect the values of the University of Alabama. This unfortunate behavior does not align with the community expectations of students.”

University President Stuart Bell added that “we hold our students to much higher standards, and we apologize to everyone who has seen the videos and hurt by this hateful, ignorant, and offensive behavior. this is not who we are; it is unacceptable and unwelcome here at the University of Alabama.”

The woman who posted the videos later apologized. She told the New York Post, “I did something really, really bad. I feel horrible. I’m wrong and there’s just no excuse for what I did.”
