Chapman University Student Utters Racist Tirade in University Classroom

A student at Chapman University in Orange, California, was arrested on several charges after he uttered a racist tirade in a university classroom, destroyed university property, and resisted arrest.

In a video that circulated on social media, the student was seen stating, “Been drinking Bacardi all day, nigger. I hate niggers.” When fellow students intervened, he stated “got any niggers in here?” He also made derogatory comments about members of the gay community on campus.

The student later stomped on a backpack containing a laptop that was damaged. He was also accused of assaulting a campus security guard.

Chapman University President Daniele C. Struppa issued a statement that said: “Racist and homophobic conduct will not be tolerated on this campus and we took decisive and swift action. As of this afternoon, the individual responsible for this incident is no longer a student at Chapman University.”

Chapman University enrolls more than 9,600 students according to the latest data supplied to the U.S. Department of Education. African Americans make up just 2 percent of the undergraduate student body.

    If I were a Chapman student and encountered this guy in class, I would immediately call campus police. This is clearly disruptive behavior. What I don’t understand, however, is why the student was not confronted by university officials before he went off the rails. Someone should have intervened, whether his R.A. or a student success coach. The positive side is that he will not be returning to the university.

    Just execute him, and be done with it. We’re tired of these folks flying off the handle and verbally assaulting us. Time to make their punishment more permanent, to ensure that it won’t be repeated in the future.
