Nancy Gordeuk, founder of TNT Academy in Stone Mountain has been fired after a video went viral of her, principal of TNT, making racist remarks during their graduation ceremony.
Gordeuk accidentally dismissed the crowd early before the class valedictorian spoke however correcting her mistake, she went on a rant about people leaving the ceremony early anyway.by saying: “You people are being so rude to not listen to this speech,” “It was my fault that we missed it in the program. Look who’s leaving! All the black people!”
Gordeuk claims she didn’t know what she said was racist. “When I looked up, all I saw was black families leaving, and thus the comment,” she said. “I didn’t know ‘black people’ was a racist term.” She later sent out an apology letter to all of the students and their families: “The devil was in the house and came out from my mouth,” she wrote. “I deeply apologize for my racist comment and hope that forgiveness is in your hearts.”
However family members sitting in the crowd during the ceremony claim Gordeuk was making racist remarks during the whole ceremony and that she deserves to have been fired.
