The following article, College Student Receives Criminal Charges For Uttering Racial Slurs While Walking By Student Apartments, was first published on Flag And Cross.

Two students who attend the University of Connecticut have been arrested and charged with hate crimes after they were recorded walking outside student apartments saying racial slurs, according to a report released by the Washington Post.

Jarred Karal and Ryan Mucaj, both 21-year-old white students, have been charged with the misdemeanor of ridicule on account of creed, religion, color, denomination, nationality or race for violating a state statute concerning hate crimes.

Here’s more from TheBlaze:

The students also face potential discipline from the school, even possible expulsion, for violating the student code of conduct, UConn President Thomas C. Katsouleas said in a statement.

“It is supportive of our core values to pursue accountability, through due process, for an egregious assault on our community that has caused considerable harm,” Katsouleas said.

Karal and Mucaj, and a third unnamed student who was not charged, were walking by student housing and playing a game in which they yelled offensive words. According to the incident report, Karal and Mucaj began saying “n****” as they walked by student housing, and someone in the apartments began recording.

The video captured of the incident went viral earlier this month, which sparked outrage among students and faculty. The video eventually made it into the hands of law enforcement.

If you have any information about this racist recording at UConn. Please email naacpuconn1909@gmail.com We will not tolerate racist behavior on this campus ✊🏿✊🏾✊🏽✊🏼

The university NAACP has asked the school to take action against the students involved in the incident in order to make an example of them and allow other students to know that such behavior is unacceptable.

Here’s a snippet from a letter the NAACP wrote to the university:

“If the university does not adequately address and handle these occurrences of racism appropriately, it will create a culture in which racism is tolerated and normalized. We demand for your full assurance that you will take appropriate measures to hold the students involved in these heinous acts of racism accountable.”

A group of students held on-campus protests as a response to the incident.

must have pissed off some black folks ? I wonder if the blacks will be treated the same way when they call a person of “non- color”, whitey, cracker , or…wait for it…. honky ?

And what will happen when one black calls another black the “N-word” ? Will they be charged?

Seems to me the color of the person saying the “racist term” shouldn’t matter, so long as he’s calling another person the same racist term.

Fair is fair……….
