White Student Gives Racist Rant on “Open Mic” Night at Bryant University in Rhode Island

A White student at Bryant University in Smithfield, Rhode Island, participated in a stand-up comedy performance as part of an “open mic night” sponsored by the university’s radio station. A video of segments of the routine was posted on social media.

The segment begins with the student says, “It’s amazing. White people, we can’t really tell Black people what to do anymore. We used to be able to do that. But we can’t anymore.” The student went on to say, “I’m just jealous about the fact that Black people are allowed to physically assault their children and I’m not. Can you imagine if a White person beat their kid? The whole country would grind to a halt.”

The microphone was then taken from the student by event organizers. The university’s Bias Incident Committee determined that the comedy routine was a bias incident.

Bryant University, which has a business-oriented curriculum, enrolls just under 3,500 undergraduate students and less than 300 graduate students, according to the latest data supplied to the U.S. Department of Education. African Americans are 3 percent of the undergraduate student body.

  1. It’s evident THAT although he’s in college he’s very ignorant. There. Are Headlines daily about how white children along with thier mothers getting KILLED BY THIER PROTECTOR. WHITE FATHERS PUTTING THIER CHILDREN IN OIL VATS. DISSECTING THIER BODIESWHITE RELIGIOUS LEADERS/TEACHERS SLEEPING WITH CHILDREN. ……. ALL RACES HAVE EVIL PEOPLE MAY YOU CONTINUE YOUR EDUCATION!!!!!!

    • I understand exactly what’s said here, the problem is white media has been putting out garbage for centuries on blacks, so as time goes on and that garbage is taught in the school system, white kids are going to feel that way. So now saying there’s bad people in all races is going to take centuries for whites to understand that.

  2. Just look at all the crimes that we see in our society that people are doing today it’s not based on color of their skin ….. just watch a few episodes of forensic files.

  3. The problem with all these conversations about racism is that they are always about “what happened” instead of about “what is the essential defect in the organic composition of the people of Europe and of European descent that causes most of them to be so fundamentally savage.” What in their genetic makeup causes them to be perpetually about destroying everything and everyone, including all people who don’t look like them, and everything in the natural world. A conversation needs to be had about, what tf is wrong with these people.

    • Hi, I’m Caucasian and I can’t help but find your comment incredibly racist and insensitive. Emotions aside, I would start by reading “Guns, Germs, and Steel”.
