Racist students escape punishment after wearing blackface on Snapchat

A group of White college students will not be punished for bullying Black students and posting racist ideas on social media. Last fall, a group of White female students who attend the University of North Dakota bullied Black students with several racist posts on Snapchat.

On one Snapchat post, the White students locked a Black student out of her dorm room, took her phone, and posted the caption, “Locked the black b— out,” according to The Star-Tribune.  Moreover, a group of four White female students wore blackface and posted the caption “Black Lives Matter” on their Snapchat.

However, the college will not punish the students for their racial intimidation. According to President Mark Kennedy, he claimed to be “appalled” by the actions, but the students did not violate the school’s conduct code because it was protected by free speech.

But Kennedy and school officials failed to take into account that students should be held accountable for speech that offends and intimidates. Hate speech should never be tolerated on a college campus.

“You have chosen to justify the acts of some of your students using the excuse of freedom of speech. Thank you for showing us that the issues that plague students of color do not matter,” Black student Etonde Maloke posted on her Facebook page.

The incidents followed protests by Black students who revealed how racism continues to be an issue at the school. But the school officials will not change until racism affects their money.

Similar to the protests by the University of Missouri, Black athletes at North Dakota should threaten to sit out of games until the White students are punished. If such a gesture was made by the Black athletes, it’s highly likely that the White students would face the punishment they deserve.

    After i lost my job half year ago, i’ve been lucky to stumble upon this awesome company online that saved me… They offer online home-based tasks. Last payment after working for them for 3 months was 12000 dollars… Amazing thing about it was that only thing required is basic typing skills and internet connection… http://korta.nu/NDe

          After i lost my previous job 6 months back, I was lucky to find this marvellous site online that was a lifesaver for me… They provide online work for people to freelance from their houses. Last check after working for them for three months was $12k… Best thing about it was that only requirement for the job is basic typing skills and a stable internet connection… http://korta.nu/MDe

    It’s sad that in this day and age WHITE PEOPLE are still so ignorant! What needs to happen is black students need to do the same to the white students and call it freedom of speech.
