On Martin Luther King Jr. Day, a University of Alabama sorority member named Harley Barber spewed racist comments saying that she’s free to yell the n-word due to her residing in the south which was completely ridiclous. Her mother has now spoken out on her bigotry.
Barber was expelled from Alabama and her mother Jill fully supports the school’s decision. She says her comments are not a reflection of the way she was raised, per NewJersey.com.
“I agree with the punishment. I fully support their decision,” said Barber. “This is not a reflection of how she was raised. She’s just degrading herself and it breaks my heart. I hope someone can look at this and learn. I don’t want anyone to feel what I feel.”
University of Alabama President Stuart Bell also condemned her comments in a public letter and said that she does not represent their institution.
“The actions of this student do not represent the larger student body or the values of our University, and she is no longer enrolled here,” said Bell. “We hold our students to much higher standards, and we apologize to everyone who has seen the videos and been hurt by this hateful, ignorant and offensive behavior. This is not who we are; it is unacceptable and unwelcome here at UA.”
Harley released an apology to The New York Post saying she’s wrong and there’s no excuse for what she did but we all know the real reason for the regret was because she got caught. She’ll be seen yelling “Roll Tide!” on Alabama football game days when black athletes score touchdowns for the school but outside of the field, everybody knows how she truly feels about black people in America.
