The video is jaw-dropping. A young woman at Florida Atlantic University was captured on video going berserk in class during an apparent discussion on natural selection. But berserk might not do the incident justice: she absolutely loses it, threatening to kill the professor and saying "every ten thousand white fu**in' white mother fu**ers would die."
"You better shut the fu**up before I fu**ing kill you," she can be seen yelling at her professor, violently whipping her hair back and forth.
The rant lasts about four minutes and even turns violent: at one point she strikes a male student in the head after appearing to call him a "bit**." In addition to being violent, however, it's also at times incoherent. Not surprisingly, it was captured by several students. One person has uploaded the video to YouTube with subtitles.* GRAPHIC WARNING -- it is unedited:
So what had the student upset?
"They were talking about natural selection. They were talking about peacocks and how females choose their mates by their most feathers and the woman started asking about how that killed all black people," one FAU student told WPEC-TV.
HuffPo has identified the woman as 24-year-old Jonatha Carr. It has more on what set her off:
Fellow student Rachel Bustamante wrote that Carr was asking “absurd questions” during a review section about female selection among peacocks, and eventually went on to ask why “evolution kills black people” in an increasingly insistent manner.
When Dr. Stephen Kajiura apparently couldn't satisfactorily address Carr's question, she began yelling as students cleared the area around her desk, rose from her seat and hit a male classmate in the forehead as she screamed in his face.
The woman was reportedly removed from class by staff and then taken to a local hospital. Additional video posted on YouTube alleges to show the woman outside the building. In it, she can be seen resisting officers trying to load her in a squad car. She can be heard screaming as officers eventually have to load her in the car head first. Other in the background comment on the use of a taser, and WSVN-TV reports one was used:
