Look: White HBCU Student Snapchats Herself In Blackface And Twitter Goes Off

Her racist social media post went viral.

Published September 29, 2016

Fair to say that Snapchatting in blackface is never a good idea, but if you're a white girl on scholarship at an HBCU? That takes a special level of stupidity.

A student at Prairie View A&M University, allegedly named Brooke, angered thousands when she posted a selfie on Snap story, in which she appears in blackface. "When you just tryna fit in at your hbcu," she captioned the offensive pic. In no time at all, the image went viral and Twitter has been going off on the racist student ever since.

Imagine seeing this pop up on your feed:

Twitter wasted no time putting the anonymous in her place, with many calling for her expulsion:

Interestingly, some alunmi are calling to make this a teachable moment, by explaining the history of blackface to this student rather than expelling her and crucifying her online. Do you agree, or nah?
