betsy devos booed at graduation

These students deserve all kinds of applause!

On Wednesday, Betsy DeVos stopped byBethune-Cookman University in order to give the historically black school’s commencement address. It’s said many students and alumni objected to the Education Secretary’s presence at the graduation as they claimed her appearance was merely an “empty gesture” to their community.

Nonetheless, the president of the university ignored the complaints and defended the commencement speaker selection by highlighting DeVos’ philanthropy work and (supposed) dedication to education. Please remember that this particular Trump lackey totally forgot segregation existed and called Historically Black Colleges and Universities “pioneers” of the school choice movement. Smh.

And it appears as though the students at BCU’s graduation had no problem showing Betsy exactly how they felt about her, as about half the attendees turned their backs and booed the 59-year-old during her speech. YASSSS.
