Black Students Told ‘Go Back To Where You Came From’ While Visiting Texas A&M Campus! [Poll]
Wow! These students were trying to get information on furthering their education, but they were taunted by racial slurs on campus? Is this another reason that there is still a need for Historically Black Colleges & Universities (HBCUs)? Get the details and vote!
Texas A&M University is investigating after a group of Dallas high school students say they were harassed while visiting the campus! The students say they were called racial slurs and told "go back where you came from." Two of the students from Uplift Hampton Preparatory, who were Black, were allegedly approached by a white woman wearing Confederate flag earrings. The woman showed the students her earrings to taunt them, then asked how they felt about them, according to KXXV. Then a group of "white male and female students" began taunting the students "using the most well-known racial slur that's directed toward African Americans." The tour guides who were with the students called campus police. No one was charged; the responding officer told people at the scene that the harassers were expressing their First Amendment rights!
A&M President Michael Young sent out a campus-wide e-mail:
"I deeply regret the pain and hurt feelings this incident caused these young students. Be assured that we take such allegations very seriously. This troubling incident will be thoroughly investigated to the fullest extent possible and appropriate action will be taken."
