Dozens of Xavier University students staged a protest, on campus Wednesday, in response to some student’s racially insensitive social media posts.

100 students, lined up along the sidewalks of campus, stood in silence while holding up pictures of people in culturally-appropriated costumes. Some of those pictures included those wearing blackface. Xavier President Mike Graham has also responded to the posts, leaving him “outraged and deeply troubled”.

The social media posts, that have caused an uproar, was a Snapchat photo of a female student wearing blackface with the caption “Who needs white when black lives matter”. The other was a skeleton with a noose over it’s neck, wearing a dashiki.
