UND Investigate After Photo With Racist Caption Posted To Snapchat

GRAND FORKS, N.D. (AP) — The University of North Dakota has launched an investigation after a photo with a racist caption was posted on social media.

The photo, captured on the popular mobile app Snapchat, shows three white students and the caption “Locked that black (expletive) out.”

University spokesman Peter Johnson confirmed to the Minneapolis Star Tribune that the individuals involved are students.

University police and the school’s Office of Student Rights and Responsibilities are investigating after the police department received a harassment complaint Tuesday.

UND president Mark Kennedy Kennedy in a statement posted on Instagram described the caption as an “abhorrent message.” He says he is “shocked” that anyone could consider the incident “a joke.”

    its freedom of speech?–correct Kaepernick and all ya other minion disrespecting those who have given you it by kneeling and that haven’t done anything POSITIVE to fix it…

    but do you have freedom of action…nope…thats the red line that Obama will up hold

  2. And when BLM says “pigs in a blanket, fry them like bacon” that is right? Looks like we have a double standard! Freedom of speech works both ways.

    Freedom of speech? Well now we have freedom of travel. Good news for all alien non-citizen Muslims: In response to your demands; Minneapolis Public Housing Authority has modified it’s policies to allow holding your subsidized section 8 town-home or welfare tower suite rent-free while you are home overseas for El-kida, Isis or El-shskabob training and or other “personal business” for periods exceeding one calendar month or thirty consecutive days. Although your monthly welfare payments cannot as yet be sent overseas, you may pick them up immediately upon your return to the USA. Homeless US citizens and their children including homeless US armed forces veterans will be kept on waiting lists and not allowed to rent your units while you are at home overseas tending to what is important to you. We now pay your fare both ways for each round trip when you Go Home.

  4. If BLM really believed in positive change, why do so many of their demonstrations turn so quickly to violence and mayhem? It’s as if they’re more interested in creating havoc and destroying property than working through the divisions they claim are fracturing American society

    Dr. Martin Luther King must be rolling in his grave right now.

      Well you can’t deny how peacefully the blm in Charlotte NC. handles a black shooting another black. Or the way 3,000 blacks shot in Chicago get them out protesting.
