A University of South Carolina student has been suspended by the school after writing on a study hall whiteboard that “n*****s” were to blame for the school’s poor WiFi signal.
According to the New York Daily News, the unidentified woman was suspended after a picture of her writing on the board went viral after being posted to Snapchat.
“Racist and uncivil rhetoric have no place at the University of South Carolina,” USC president Harris Pastides said in a statement on Friday. “The unfortunate and disappointing act of a student in a study room has challenged the Carolina community to reflect on our values and tell the world what we believe.”
In the photo, the woman can be seen using a red marker to list ““reasons why USC WiFi blows.”
Topping her list was the offensive racist slur, followed by “incompetent professors,” “ratchets,” “overpopulated campus,” and “parking.”
The suspension comes as campuses across the country have been roiled by racial incidents, including a racist singalong held by the SAE fraternity at the University of Oklahoma, and a Duke University student admitting to hanging a noose from a campus tree.
