Students, Alumni Outraged Over Penn State’s ‘Pathetic’ Response To Racist Comments

Penn State students, parents, and alumni were disappointed with the university’s response to a student’s alleged racist remarks Tuesday night.

Nonetheless, Twitter users took to Penn State’s mentions to air their grievances against the university’s actions so far.
