Addicting Info 2
Nancy Gordeuk, founder of the TNT Academy in Lilburn, Georgia, has … ALLEGEDLY … long been regarded by students as kind of racist, but I don’t know about that; I do, however, know about this …
The TNT Academy is described as a “Non-Traditional Educational Center” that serves “middle and high school students that choose to engage in independent study,” but it appears that Nancy Gordeuk’s views fall right in line with right-wingnut conservatives who fear multiculturalism because it’s changing America from what it used to be; okay, so maybe she is a bit racist.
Anyway, at last Friday’s graduation ceremony, Nancy Gordeuk abruptly ended the ceremony before the valedictorian spoke — and it was, apparently, an honest mistake — and many students and parents got up to leave once Gordeuk dismissed. Then, realizing her mistake, Nancy Gordeuk tried to get everyone to sit back down so the valedictorian could speak and Gordeuk said:
“You people are being so rude, to not listen to this speech. It was my fault that we missed it in the program.”
Not so bad, but then,. For some reason only known to crazy folks, Gordeuk said:
“Look who’s leaving… all the black people!”
Except that it wasn’t the “black people” leaving and if you go to the link at the bottom, you will see that after Gordeuk’s insensitive, racist, stupid, asshatted remark, many black people, who’d still been seated, did get up and walk out as Nancy Gordeuk continued to shout:
“You sit down and listen to this speech.”
Now Nancy’s on the defensive, trying to say she isn’t a bigot, and, well, she knows who to blame for this mess: Satan. That’s right; Nancy’s blaming the Devil for this one because she wants y’all to know that she isn’t a racist at all and that the real problem at the ceremony where “those people” — my quotes — who got up and walked out.
And Nancy Gordeuk is still trying to explain her remarks, and still digging herself in deeper — and I thought blaming Satan was as low as she could go … I was wrong:
“When I looked up all I saw was black families leaving, and thus the comment.”
Well, except a glance at the video shows it wasn’t black people leaving. Then Nancy takes a different approach in her apology, saying she was:
“Frustrated with the prospect of ruining the once-in-a-lifetime ceremony the graduates have worked so hard for, my emotions got the best of me and that is when I blurted out ‘you people are being so rude to not listen to this speech. I deeply apologize for my actions made in the emotional state of trying to let this last student finish his speech.”
And then in an e-mail to parents, Gordeuk once again blames Satan:
“A terrible mistake on my part of the graduation ceremony on Friday night. The devil was in the house and came out from my mouth. I deeply apologize for my racist comment and hope that forgiveness is in your hearts.”
And then she keeps talking, and though she just admitted that what she said was racist, she then turns around and denies the whole thing:
“It was not a statement of racism. It was just my frustration. I’m sorry it happened. So sorry, but God has forgiven me and we’ll just go on from there.”
When contacted, God said:
“Keep me out of this. I ain’t got time for crazy racists.”
Or something like that … Still, what I find most offensive, other than Nancy Gordeuk’s faux apologies, is the fact that, like most racist folks do when they’re caught being racist, because that’s who they are, blame the Devil and then say they’ve asked God for forgiveness.
Skip the hogwash, Nancy, beg for forgiveness from your students and their parents, and then politely step down because you’ve got no business in any kind of education setting, unless you wanna open a Hate Academy.
