BOCA RATON, Fla. – Video of a black college student going berserk in evolution class is becoming a national sensation after classmates recorded the astonishing meltdown during which she threatened to kill her professor and all white people.
The obscenity-filled outburst took place at Florida Atlantic University, where Professor Stephen Kajiura was reviewing with his evolution class for a midterm exam.
That’s when Jonatha Carr, 24, of Coral Springs, Fla., interrupted him, asking: “How does evolution kill black people?”
When the professor tried to explain that evolution doesn’t kill anyone, that’s when Carr erupted into a vulgarity-packed, violent rage, uncorking a barrage of F-bombs on Kajiura and her classmates, who recorded her fit on their phone cameras.
Among Carr’s ranting, she was heard to say, “Every ten thousand white f—in’ white motherf—ers would die,” as well as shouting at the teacher, “You better shut the f— up before I f—ing kill you.”
Carr’s classmate, Rachel Bustamante, told the University Press that Kajiura was discussing attraction between peacocks when Carr raised her hand to ask her question about evolution. She asked it four times, and became increasingly upset each time Kajiura’s answer failed to satisfy her.
A witness who contacted police claimed, “No one was comfortable in the room. I realized the situation was escalating and went out to call the police.”
Moments later, Carr walked down an aisle of the class and bashed the palm of her hand into a male student’s forehead.
“She became increasingly belligerent,” Kajiura told the Press. “It was at this point, a highly emotionally charged individual who was no longer capable of responding rationally. She was threatening to kill both me and the students in the class.”
“Some [FAU technician] came in and ordered her to get out,” he continued. “He ordered her to leave the room, and they got into a physical altercation. Several other individuals jumped in and tried to help him.”
An FAU police report indicates Carr was Tasered three times for failing to comply with police orders. She also reportedly fought staff at the South County Mental Health Center in Delray Beach, Fla., where she was taken for psychiatric evaluation.
Kajiura said the entire event took no more than 10 minutes, and he resumed his lecture, despite an exodus of about half the class.
“No one could concentrate,” Bustamante said. “Everyone gave up and started texting.”
The Press says Bustamante gave the instructor a copy of the fight, which she recorded and posted on Facebook and YouTube.
Kaijura praised his students, saying they were “Absolutely fantastic. They acted responsibly.”
