A girl is no longer registered at a Christian college after she went viral for a video in which she criticized the Black Lives Matter motion.
After she reportedly endured a “disciplinary procedure,” the school says she no longer goes to the university.
What are the details?
According to Campus Reform, Ashleigh Brock– a previous student at Hardin Simmons University in Abilene, Texas– developed numerous TikTok videos in which she supposedly questioned the validity of the Black Lives Matter movement.
In one video, the outlet notes, Brock argued that there is way more outrage when a white individual kills a black person than when a black individual kills a white person– or perhaps when a black person kills a fellow black person.
In another video, Brock apparently insists that “all lives matter”– not simply black lives.
” Do black lives matter?” she apparently can be heard asking. “Yes, of course. Do white lives matter? Yes, obviously. I’m not gon na sit here and put each one in a group stating this race matters.”
What was the response?
In a since-deleted tweet captured by School Reform, one Twitter user composed, “This is Ashleigh Brock, she goes to Hardin Simmons University in Abilene, Tx. There requires to be severe consequences for these actions (in actions I mean racism). Not just has she done it one time but she’s done it multiple times!”
The post went viral and rejected other similar tweets, according to the outlet, and the videos eventually made it to school authorities.
In a declaration, the university stated that Brock’s conduct was “deeply frustrating and inappropriate.”
The school also firmly insisted that her point of view was “not reflective of the [school’s] Christian worths.”
” We are actively investigating and taking decisive action,” the university’s statement included.
HSU President Eric Bruntmyer revealed that Brock’s videos prompted the school to effect “significant change.”
In a video, Brunmyer said, “As people, we have certain rights of flexibility of speech in public forums, like a number of the social media platforms. Nevertheless, within the HSU community, that right is constantly related to an obligation as Christians, in addition to a fundamental duty in the consequences of our words and actions.”
” Social network can be an effective tool,” he continued. “Used in the wrong method, it can have harmful consequences. The views we reveal on social networks must show the worths and beliefs we maintain as followers of Christ. We should all use these platforms to construct each other up, and not tear each other down.”
Bruntmyer said that he would not detail what disciplinary actions taken against Brock, however did confirm that she is “no longer registered at Hardin Simmons University.”
