Georgia Principal Caught On Tape Making Racist Comments During High School Graduation

Nancy Gordeuk, principal and founder of TNT Academy in Lilburn, Georgia,  made statements so outlandish and racist at the school’s graduation ceremony that it caused the majority of people in attendance to walk out.

Gordeuk ended the graduation ceremony by accident without first allowing the valedictorian to speak. Once she realized her error, she attempted to stop people from leaving, going so far as to tell someone to close the doors of the First Baptist Church of Lilburn where the ceremony took place. She then said that the audience was the “rudest people I’ve ever seen in my life.”

Once it became apparent that it would be difficult to get people to return to the ceremony, Gordeuk completely lost it.

Gordeuk first called a Black man who allegedly went to the front of the audience to take pictures or record something with his iPad a “goober” and a “little coward.” Then she went in, starting with the most stereotypical characterization of Black people that racist White people make:

You people are being so rude to not listen to this speech,” Gordeuk said. “It was my fault that we missed it in the program. Look who’s leaving, all the Black people.”

WealthyU: 5 Tips To Help You Build Wealth Like A Boss

 

Do you want to be a millionaire? We know you do, but the question is: how can you generate $1 million in wealth?

According to America’s Wealth Coach, it may not be as hard as you think.

Financial guru Deborah Owens stopped by NewsOne Now on Monday to explain how you can invest like a boss and generate seven figures in financial freedom.

Owens told NewsOne Now guest host Mo Ivory that the key to building a million dollars “is not some big windfall, it really is investing over time.”

Through the five investing and financial tips she shared, Owens believes that anyone can “build a million dollar portfolio.”

Top Wealth Building Investment Tips:

  • Save Early – Begin setting aside funds to put in a 401K plan early in your career or job regardless of how long you plan to be there.
  • Save More – Max out your 401K contributions, start at 10 percent of your income and then increase your contributions by one percent every year.
  • Take Risks
  • Invest In Stocks – Target retirement date funds are under-performing and interest rates have been significantly lower. People who have accumulated considerable amounts of wealth have invested up to 75 percent of their portfolio in stocks.
  • Automatic and Systematic – If you do not have an employer sponsored retirement plan, you can still invest in an IRA (Individual Retirement Account), a self-employed individual retirement account, and have funds taken out on a monthly basis.

    I totally disagree with the wealth building tips that were mentioned on your show by one of your guest / contributer. ESPECIALLY WHEN SHE MENTIONED THAT 401K WAS IDEAL line of Investment. Also telling listener’s that have lost jobs to pull their little retirements out of 401K and put it in IRA account. Please ask her to reach me at 5103266371. I will explain before putting up public reasons. Why she’s wrong.
