Two students at a Christian university in Abilene, Texas have been expelled after school officials became aware of a disturbing video posted to Snapchat showing a white student making racially-charged remarks while in blackface.
The offensive video was first uploaded to Snapchat Monday morning and shows an unidentified female Abilene Christian University student with her face covered in black makeup.

“I’m a strong black woman,” she says before putting on a pair of oversized costume lips, while several people can be heard laughing in the background.
The video is accompanied by a caption that reads, “This is why black lives matter exists.”
Abilene Christian University President Phil Schubert immediately summoned the students involved in the video to a meeting with himself, the university’s anti-harassment coordinator and the dean of students, according to a statement posted on the ACU website.
“They are no longer students at ACU,” wrote President Schubert. “I cannot emphasize strongly enough that this kind of hurtful behavior has no place on our campus or on behalf of ACU.”
When will these racists learn?
