Outrage as school founder makes racist remark at high school graduation

Hmm, pretty flagrant bigotry. She should fly the Confederate flag out front.

Friday, the founder of TNT Academy in Lilburn Georgia shocked students and parents alike when she made racist comments towards her black graduates.

In the past students have alleged that the school, and it’s founder Nancy Gordeuk hold disparaging views towards people of color, and at yesterday’s graduation ceremony they unexpectedly received validation.

The confusion initially started when Gordeuk accidentally ended the ceremony without allowing the valedictorian to make their speech. When she became aware of her mistake, she asked all the graduating seniors to come back inside the hall for the final speech.

By this point people were already headed to their cars, and it became difficult to corral everyone back into the auditorium.

That’s when a frustrated Gordeuk took to the mic and announced:

You people are being so rude, to not listen to this speech. It was my fault that we missed it in the program. Look who’s leaving… all the black people!
At that point the crowd erupted in anger and everyone started to leave.

What the hell was this all about in the first place? There is another video of it I saw that shows more but still doesn't really explain what led up to her rant.

My reading skills have been quite limited today. I apologize for missing that.

This has both videos.

Yeah, the longer video has better sound and expands on what a piece of work this woman is. She should be nowhere near an educational institution.

Maybe the black people were leaving early so they wouldn't be late for a prescheduled protest rally, looting, or riot.

Let me get this straight. A religious based high school in the south is anything but normal? I'm shocked. Simply shocked.

I'm sorry that I was raised on so many Brit flicks that had that word used so commonly.

There are only white people in this thread. I guess all the black people left. How rude.

Re: Outrage as school founder makes racist remark at high school graduation

Sounds like Gordeuk is really sorry:

"I deeply apologize for my actions made in the emotional state of trying to let this last student finish his speech. I take a personal interest in the success of every student that comes through our doors without regard to their race, religion or ethnicity."

Yeah, ok.

I find it hilarious when individuals can't control themselves. Comedy gold....and you know she meant everything she said.

Almost always men on the receiving end of that epithet in the U.K.
