Hardin-Simmons University Student Posts Racist Video on Social Media

A student at Hardin-Simmons University in Abilene, Texas, is no longer enrolled at the university, after it was discovered that she posted a racist video on social media.

In the video, the woman who was wearing a Hardin-Simmons T-shirt, shows  a caption that reads “People when a BLACK person kills a BLACK person” and shows her appearing calm. The second caption reads “People when a BLACK person kills a WHITE person,” while the woman continues to appear calm. But when the caption changes to “People when a WHITE person kills a BLACK person,” shows her being angry with flames surrounding her image.

In a statement issued by the university, a spokesperson said “upon learning about a TikTok post made this week by an HSU student, we immediately took action to address the situation and began the required disciplinary process. We can confirm that the student associated with this incident is no longer enrolled at Hardin-Simmons University.”

Eric Bruntmyer, president of Hardin-Simmons University, added in a statement that the social media post was “deeply disappointing and unacceptable and does not reflect the Christian values of HSU.”

Hardin-Simmons University enrolls more than 2,300 students, according to the latest data supplied to the U.S. Department of Education. African Americans make up 9 percent of the undergraduate student body.

    Like a muddied spring or a polluted fountain is a righteous person who gives way before the wicked. (Prov 25:26).
    This “Christian” U just gave way before a racist mob.
