A Georgia Southern University student, Courtney Schaefer, has sparked outrage after she ‘accidentally’ sent a racist text message to her new Nigerian college roommate, Nwamaka.

According to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Schaefer had been paired with Nwamaka and ended up sending her a text about her. The text message read: “Her insta looks pretty normal not too n*ggerish.” .

Schaefer must have noticed that she sent the horrifically racist text to the wrong person and tried to clean it up with her next text. She said: “OMG! I am so sorry! Holy crap. .

Damn spell check I did NOT mean to say that. I was texting (someone’s name) and I meant to say triggerish meaning like you seemed really cool nothing that triggered a red flag! I’m so embarrassed. I apologize.”

But that didn’t stop the new roommate from screenshotting the text conversation and sharing it with her friends. The screenshots were later posted on Facebook and Twitter.

Georgia Southern University later put out a statement and in it, university President, Shelley Nickel said: “The use of such racist comments is offensive and unacceptable and in no way reflects the attitudes or values of Georgia Southern University. .

To be clear, there is no place for bigotry or racism on our campuses.” So far, it is unknown whether or not Schaefer will face any disciplinary action.
