Do HBCU Graduates Ever Get Yanked Off the Stage at Their Commencement?

If they do get yanked off stage, typically one of the people doing the yanking isn’t a middle-aged white guy, and one of the talking points isn’t how it happened primarily to black folks, as was the case at the University of Florida recently.

UF Twitter ????????

Somebody please find out this employee’s name!! Every time a Black student took more than TWO seconds, he aggressively pushed them. Watch it for yourself. #ItsGreatUF

Now that’s not to say that HBCUs don’t have their own commencement problems.

Maybe it’s just a Florida thing?
