That is what racism looks like when they cannot suppress it any longer.

Should he had put his hands on them? Of course not. Now on to address black ppl. I love black ppl...I love my ppl with all my heart, but I do not like the crazy crap we do. This is a professional event. Raise your hands...clap...be joyous, but save your club dancing for another time. What are you going to do when you get the job interview? Sit in the interviewe’s chair and then start dancing and pop locking?? I’m with Nelly Fuller Jr. when he says black ppl aren’t in a position to be celebrating. We need to get our heads down and WORK. I graduated last Saturday...I get the excitement. I see other groups of ppl happy for their kids...you can hear the Muslims world wide “lalalalalalalala!”. Cool but out of everybody, Black ppl celebrate the most but have accomplished the least. How many of those students have good jobs in their field when they’re done? I’m excited too but I know I’ve got to get serious about being serious. I’m not in any position as a black person to show out public ally celebrating like that. I’ve got work to do helping us advance as a ppl. No time to cut up.

just stop, these men have every right to be proud and celebrate. you're an RN sooooooooooooooo miss me with your be humble. here you are bragging you just graduated. popping your collar because you followed what your master told you. when i got my masters i was loud and proud. there are plenty of coon places you can suck up too but this will not going be one of them. top of class sets the pace not a 2 year RN! i tell you what if and when you become a nurse nurse anesthetist or close then you can talk. when you get top class you can talk. "structural engineering University of Texas"

@coka2005: bragging??? I’m 1 out of hundreds of thousands graduating this years. Negro please. I said very little about it to anyone, even family. Nobody at the hospital I work at even knew about it, YET YOU KNOW SO MUCH ABOUT ME TO SAY I’M BRAGGING AND AT OF ALL PLACES....BRAGGING ON FREAKING BLACK JUNCTION. If you don’t gthooh!! I’m Hollerith laughing! lolololol...really??? Is your comment real? I mentioned being a graduate, not to brag, but so that other ppl would not accuse me of being jealous. Apparently, I can’t win with ppl who think like you. I didn’t go to school to satisfy or be seen as important by white ppl. I’m an LPN who went back for my RN bc I wanted to expand my abilities using my gift in nursing to help black ppl, esp. black women and black babies bc we die at alarmingly higher rates then other pregnant and postpartum women and children. You have a masters degree but claim I’m doing what my master told me to do...? See, I’m very prepared for the fact that I’m serving the very same black ppl who have your ignorant mentality and I’m happy to do so. I can’t and won’t be stopped. I’m quite proud of my humble 2 year RN associates degree. Praise God and glory to him; not to myself! I’m on my way to getting my bachelor degree next year and continuing on up to my doctorate and WHEN that happens, I’m not going to be “popping my collar” I’m going to be devoting my blessings to my kin folk, skin folk and my ancestors who wanted to do more but were restricted and had a harder time under this racist system. Unfortunately, you felt the need to be nasty, and undignified in your comment to me, and you should be woefully ashamed of yourself. Black ppl shouldn’t talk to each other like that but they do and they damn sure shouldn’t do so while calling others a “coon” BUT THEY DO. I’m calling you out on your nonsense. Stop! I never said not to be loud and proud; I said be joyous BUT BE MINDFUL that as black ppl at the bottom...our celebration is NOT. YET! We have work to do!! Agree to disagree but never loose your class.

the thing to remember is that they dont want us in THEIR spaces. they have had to put their hatred under wraps for so long, but this shows the inner hatred of us znd our ways. they have never respected us and see our bodies as objects that can be manhandled at will.
we have to remember that when we are around them we are not regarded as individuals with rights.we are not safe in a system they have created for their sucess. in thdir eys we have no place in THEIR Institutions except in subordinate positions.

While he had no business putting his mots on these students, we must observe protocol when we are dealing with the enemy! And that apology from the college means nothing cause our black children have already been mistreated and Mia handled.
