READING, Pa. — Albright College in eastern Pennsylvania is condemning an online video posted by two white students, including one in blackface who lampoons the “Black Lives Matter” movement.
College President Lex O. McMillan III issued a statement Thursday saying the school unequivocally condemns the video.
McMillan’s statement says the students who posted the Snapchat video on Tuesday voluntarily came forward and have “expressed deep remorse.”
In the video, the student in blackface refers to herself as “Carlisha,” insults “Black Lives Matter” then dances around with padding in her pants, meant to increase the size of her butt.
McMillan’s statement didn’t say whether the students have been disciplined. Some students planned to demonstrate against the video on Friday, the beginning of the 160-year-old, private, liberal arts school’s homecoming weekend.
