Georgia Principal Faults Devil, Emotions for Racist Remarks

A Georgia principal who complained about black people leaving a graduation ceremony while the valedictorian was still speaking is blaming the devil and her emotions for the remarks.

Nancy Gordeuk, principal and founder of TNT Academy in Stone Mountain, Georgia, came under national scrutiny after a video was released of her making the comments at the graduation ceremony on Friday, The Daily Beast is reporting.

Story continues below video.


Gordeuk reportedly had already dismissed the audience when she realized that she had forgotten to have the valedictorian give his speech. She then asked everyone to return to their seats to listen to the valedictorian, but some continued to leave.

The Georgia principal said that there was also someone who walked up front with a tablet and started recording the ceremony, whom she called a "goober" and a "little coward" after asking him to sit down.

"You people are being so rude, to not listen to this speech. It was my fault that we missed it in the program," Gordeuk said Friday.

"Look who’s leaving — all the black people," she added.

Gordeuk sent out an email to parents of children at the academy in an attempt to explain her comments, the local NBC News affiliate in Atlanta reported.

"A terrible mistake on my part of the graduation ceremony on Friday night," Gordeuk wrote. "The devil was in the house and came out from my mouth. I deeply apologize for my racist comment and hope that forgiveness in in your hearts [sic]."

"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.' It was my fault that we missed the speech in the program,'" she said.

"I sincerely apologize to all the persons in attendance at the ceremony for the actions of the few causing the disturbance and for my emotional, uncalled generalization of the black persons in attendance," she added.

"I deeply apologize for my actions made in the emotional state of trying to let this last student finish his speech."
