Another viral video has surfaced online casting our community in a negative light. A video uploaded to streaming website World Star Hip Hop shows college students — yes, college students — cheering on a young thug who brutally beats another student to the ground before stealing his NIKE Foamposite Dark Pine sneakers right off his feet. The shoes went on sale in early September for $190, and they are in high demand since they’ve sold out everywhere.
The incident took place Friday (Dec. 2) on the campus of Dean college in Boston as White students walk by the scene as if it’s a normal occurrence to see Black thugs wildin’ out on their campus between classes.
Boston.com reports that six students were expelled from the college, and three more students are going through the school’s judicial process today. Their fate will be determined by day’s end, said Gregg Chalk, spokesman for Dean College.
“The Dean has zero tolerance for anything that infringes on the safety of students,” Chalk said.
According to a brief description on Worldstarhiphop.com,
“The kid in the green jacket stole foamposites out the room of the dude in the grey dorm room & they both dont know each other & the dude in the grey been missing the foamposites for 2weeks & out of no where this kid who’s been rocking the same jacket & the same one pair of jordans through out the whole year appears with pine green foams the same size as the dude in the grey is missing.”
These men are supposed to be our best and brightest attending an institute of higher learning. We have to do better!
