A hate-filled video that was posted on YouTube has prompted Old Dominion University in Norfolk, Virginia, to launch an investigation. In the video, a woman is wearing a white shirt which has “My President Is White Again” words written on it along with a picture of Trump.
The video, which has now been removed for violating YouTube’s community standards, shows a woman who is dancing to music that promotes lynching, white power and Ku Klux Klan and waving a firearm while donning President Donald Trump’s mask.
That is not all, messages on the screen also read, “N****r History Month” and “Kill All N****rs.”
Old Dominion University, whose logo can easily be seen on the sweatshirt, said that an investigation has been launched.
“This is an outrageous act of hate and intolerance and we are sickened by this vile video. There is no place on this campus for hate and divisiveness. University administrators are taking this matter seriously and University police are investigating.”
“These types of incidents stand as a stark reminder that we must continue our resolve to educate on the importance of civility and inclusion. It is what we as a Monarch Nation stand for and represent every day,” added the statement.
Rachael Edmonds, president of the student government at Old Dominion University, said as a leader on campus she sees a lot of things, but never something to this level. She further added that she also wonders what would trigger such a hateful video.
"This was shocking, I had very few words when I first looked at the video, merely brought me to tears," she said.
Montae Taylor, president of Old Dominion University, said he was not angry when he saw the video.
"I felt bad; you should never have that much hate in your heart ever. You can’t beat anger with anger ever, but responding with love is what always overcomes. Even the person that made that video, we love them as well because, you know, they need it obviously."
