UGA President Jere Morehead Addresses Racist Facebook Posts

 

 

Tonight, University of Georgia President Jere Morehead issued an email to students, faculty, and staff regarding the recent racist facebook issues.

He says that we are all hurting, but we all need to rally together in support. He officially stated that the UGA Police and Georgia Bureau of Investigation and Facebook and Twitter are working together to fully investigate the situation.

Even though he issued these emails, some students are still not satisfied.

President of the Black Affairs Council, Caroline Bailey, and Vice President, Terrence Rhodes, say that this email is just a little too late.

They are having another protest tomorrow- a silent protest in front of the Administration Building from 2:30-3:30, Friday.

Vice President of Student Affairs, Victor Wilson, says that his door is always open. He says that sometimes when someone is grieving, it is hard to know how to help them.

Still everyone agrees that  we need to rally together.
