Another Racist Facebook Comment Prompt Students to Question UGA Administration


The controversy continues over a series of racist remarks aimed at black students here at the University of Georgia. Members of the Black Student Affairs Council say they are not just angry with the person who posted the remarks, but also with the university.

Caroline Bailey, the President of the Black Student Affairs Council, is upset with the way the University handled the situation.

Attached in the interview below, she even read a piece of a statement made by Tom Jackson.

She says that this is not just one incident at UGA, but this is an ongoing problem they face day to day.

After the first post was made last week, they created a march on Sanford Drive that happened that Friday. Students chanted “Home for Who” in honor of Homecoming week- they did not feel like this place was a home after the Facebook posts.

There was two accounts created, both are now under investigation with the UGA Police. The two men identified in the accounts are allegedly victims of identity theft.

Caroline Bailey knows it is going to be a crazy few weeks up ahead, but she is prepared to talk about this and make changes.
