An investigation is underway at Old Dominion University after a racist video surfaced online this week with a sweatshirt with the ODU seal in the background. The video was of a young white woman wearing a Donald Trump mask and a shirt that said “My President Is White. Again.” and waving a firearm around while saying racial epithets. White nationalist hip hop music praising lynching, white power and the Ku Klux Klan played in the background, while messages on the screen said “Nigger History Month” and “Kill All Niggers.” ODU immediately condemned the video in a statement and launched an investigation saying, “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.” Additionally they expressed that, “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.” Seems like just another display of the sinister nature of white women and their role in upholding white supremacy to me, but I’ll just sip my tea & hope for better days. The video has been removed from Youtube, but if you want to see the buffoonery take a look at this Twitter user's video.
