A document has been circulated online by numerous black students linked to multiple universities, in which white people are referred to as “maggots,” “vermin,” and “roaches.”
The circulated document contains hundreds of slurs against white people, with some of the names listed as “favorites,” including “rat,” “pigs,” and “decomposing form of humanity.”
Other slurs include “yeast maggots,” “mutated vermin,” and “snow roaches,” according to the obtained list.
BELOW ARE SOME OF THE SLURS AGAINST WHITE PEOPLE USED IN THE CHAT:
“Racism is a two-way street,” Anthony Watson, a contributor for TPUSA, said in a media statement. “Unfortunately, universities have enacted policies that embolden black students to act as though they are immune to the repercussions of discrimination. If the university is actually against racism, they should treat this situation the same way they would if the races were reversed.”
Auburn University student Jaden Heard, who is not a member of the Black Student Union, provided the document to Turning Point USA on behalf of a member of the group.
Auburn University told reporters it has been investigating the situation since Jan. 17.
“Administrators have since learned that the GroupMe chat in question is titled ‘AU Connect: Brought to you by The Throwdown’ and includes hundreds of people from multiple universities,” spokesperson Jennifer Adams said. “These comments did not occur on the Black Student Union GroupMe nor as part of any recognized Auburn University organization channel.”
