The director of a Georgia school apologized for calling out "all the black people" who left a graduation ceremony during the valedictorian's speech.

Nancy Gordeuk, director of TNT Academy in Stone Mountain, was recorded making the controversial remark toward the end of Friday's ceremony.

The valedictorian was giving his speech at the end because she forgot to introduce him earlier in the program, Gordeuk told CNN in an email.

The video shows Gordeuk standing at the podium in front of a live microphone as she says, "You people are being so rude, to not listen to this speech."

As commotion grows in the audience, she blurts out, "Look who's leaving, all the black people," prompting cries from the audience and an even larger exodus.

Perhaps next time she should be more selective in her thinking before speaking, obviously not "all the black people" were leaving, but with this one comment she inspired them, and possibly everyone to leave.

What do you think?

The EX-director should take up gardening, and get a clue.

Its clear by the tone shes applying stern sarcasm, implying that it was no surprise that it was the black people that were being rude.

I think that it really does sound like a closet racist letting slip her feelings towards the black students of the school.

Priceless.
From what I could see the majority of the audience were of African descent.
It is Georgia.
That was so stupid it was funny.
I'd bet a dollar she was drunk.
Was that Pam from 'Archer?'

That awkward moment when you realize that maybe young black people are right when they say they aren't treated fairly at school.

I wonder what she found so unsurprising by the black students leaving?

Something that just occurred to me:

Perhaps the black students had been the racists towards her during their attendance at the school through the years and therefore didnt care to hear the white womans speech?

I think she just considers black people rude and not interested in education.

What does this kids speech have to do with their education? Over half of the kids in my graduating class had already left by the time the speeches started. This is graduation which means there is a major party waiting somewhere.

We do not have the right to decide what any thing another person says means. It is not "obvious" because you're not in her mind.

Maybe she said what she saw.

You know, I have this shirt that I wore yesterday. It's got rolly polly people shapes colored black and white- and they're all stuck together like paper dolls. It's an old shirt from probably the 60s.

Some Fhead said I was wearing a "racist shirt"

Can we all just get over ourselves now? Don't project your feelings onto others.

Well presumably it would be about their education seeing as it was a speech being given at a celebration of their educational accomplishments...

I have a feeling this woman is far more qualified than most of us to comment on the behavior of black students in her area. Even if she does sound like an asshole.

But what was the purpose of saying the racist? If it was a Black person saying, "look at all these White people", people would still be offended and point out the racist. It's inappropriate to say something like that at a school/workplace.

I have 2 kinds of green snakes in my yard and they look identical. One type likes the bite and is poisonous the other type is harmless. I've been bitten twice so from now on I avoid the snakes. I guess I'm racist because I don't like green snakes. I've been told that not all snakes are bad but after being bitten I don't want anything to do with them.

Yes, commenting on your surroundings is tantamount to lynching. Why have a brain if it is illegal to use it.

I suppose I must now recognize the "logic" of racistism.

Nope.

You'd be a speciest. LOL is that even a word? You'd be practicing speciesism.



Analogy fail.

Bonus round?
