URI president Marc Parlange condemns racist video on social media

The president of the University of Rhode Island is condemning what he describes as a “racist video” involving at least one former member of the men’s track and field team.

The video, which surfaced over the weekend, features someone who appears to be a current member of the URI track team and is posted to the since-deleted account of a former team member.

“The University learned [Friday] of at least two of our students allegedly involved in the posting of a racist video on social media,” URI president Marc B. Parlange wrote in a statement. “The video appeared to promulgate racist stereotypes about Black people and was a stinging reminder of the long road URI and America has to travel to truly achieve justice, equity, diversity and inclusion on campus and in society.”
