Kennesaw State University is making headlines this week after a video of a student seeking help has gone viral. According to WSBTV, the student went to an adviser’s office to get assistance, but was treated rather poorly by a school staff member who accused him of harassment. The student caught the whole thing on video, and posted it online for all to see.
“Kevin Bruce, a junior at KSU, says he was just simply waiting for one of his exercise science advisers to sign a form when another adviser came out and accused him of harassment.”
According to the report, many feel as though this was a case of racism; the adviser is a white female, the student is a black male. In the video, you can hear the woman continuously ask Bruce if he wanted her to call campus security. However, it doesn’t seem like calling security was even remotely necessary as the student seemed very respectful.
The Kennesaw State University viral video has caused the hashtag “#ItsBiggerThanKSU” in an effort to spread the word about what’s going on at the university — and likely at other schools in the nation. Bruce says that he doesn’t feel as though the issue has anything to do with race, but is trying to alert people to what’s going on.
According to 11 Alive, KSU is conducting an internal investigation.
Another school-related video went viral this week. As previously reported by the Inquisitr, a father had an interesting way of making his son “pay” for failing in school. There was much debate about his choice of punishment, which you can see here.
