It's OK for commencement speeches to be "white"?

As I always say, a sincere apology would include cutting off his own tongue. He has not done this, therefore he has not apologized.

CANCEL PURDUE UNIVERSITY!

Woke comments:

Quote
His apology is pure BS!!! As a college chancellor to call it off the cuff is just egregiously  wrong & truly reflects his true attitudes.

Quote
that so-called 'apology' hit every marker for a NON-apology. 

it was an "unplanned response to another speaker"-- i.e. this was a private thing between that speaker and me and you wouldn't understand/you have misunderstood.

"my words have caused confusion, pain, and anger"--  (1)  my words, not me. 
(2)  confusion as in you don't understand (again), your fault, your problem. 
(3)  anger as in your fault, your problem for being incapable of understanding. 
(4)  pain as in i'm sorry you feel that way-- i.e. your fault, your problem.

"we are all human, i made a mistake"-- i.e. i'm being persecuted here.

"i assure you i did not intend to be hurtful..."--  i.e. i'm such a racist that i thought what i said was all in good fun.

"my comments do not reflect my personal values."-- this could mean two things.  either
racist words randomly spew forth from my mouth unbidden, or
i was forced to say what i'm saying right here in this bullshite apology.

a real apology says i hurt you, i feel terrible about it, i will do what you need me to do to fix it if that's possible, and i won't do it again.

It’s not just the racist mockery, but the fact that he believed (and may still do) it was “funny” qualified
as a joke tells you more about this guy (and those around him who laughed at his “joke”).  Somebody like this shouldn’t be a school custodian, let alone a University chancellor. Purdue is  a joke for continuing to support this guy.

Quote
The fact that Chancellor Keon was comfortable enough to make such an ignorant and insensitive remark at a public event makes one wonder what he says behind closed doors.

Quote
The thing is...this is something he did without thinking about it...which means he does this every day

Quote
People like this person do this all the time when he is around his family and friends

Quote
How the hell can someone be so out of touch with reality to think that they can say that in public, to a large crowd of people, and not suffer the consequences of their actions?

Quote
Q: "...and not suffer the consequences of their actions?" A: He's a white man.

Quote
This was not off the CUFF This was in his heart on his mind because it's in their Blood. This is who they're and they will never change. They will only say that they're Sorry. But they're not

Quote
It’s not just the chancellor as mentioned those professors behind him are laughing too. This is very telling about this institution.

Quote
The plan is to offer a few words of appeasement,  pretend to be have a 'diverse' task force offer their input, and when things die down, to continue business as usual.  A  'they'll get over it'  approach.  They will laugh it off in private.

Quote
these people think it will just go away if they apologize.

Quote
Everyone who laughed along to the racist 'joke' should be fired as well.  In fact, anyone on the faculty who didn't vociferously object to the racism at the time should be fired.

Quote
Pretty much everyone else sitting on that stage laughed, not a single one showed any surprise, anger, or disapproval of what was said.

Quote
This is the new kind of racism, say racist comments and then others come along and gaslight and excuse the behavior.  This normalizes the behavior and action.

Quote
This is one of the things that happens when a group allows others to prop them up as the model minority and stay out of the fight against prejudice for so long.  I am so glad that more Asian people are starting to wake up and speak out against bigotry

Update:

his apology was met with further backlash and resignation demands from netizens who felt his words were insufficient.

According to WBAA, Thomas Roach, chair of the faculty senate, criticized both Keon's apology and the school's Board of Trustees for accepting it:

    The fact they [the Board of Trustees] accepted the apology is almost as bad as what he said in the first place. The Asian community has been saying for years that they are being discriminated against, and they’ve also been saying everybody tolerates descrimination against Asian Americans. Here we have this discriminatory remark and the Board of Trustees saying ‘no big deal.’”

A Change.org petition by students also demanding the chancellor's resignation has reached 4,991 signatures at the time of this writing.

Quote
NC State football and men's basketball play-by-play announcer Gary Hahn has been suspended indefinitely after making an offensive comment about immigrants and the city of El Paso, per Luke Decock of The News & Observer.

Per that report, Hahn was announcing the score of the Sun Bowl during the broadcast of the Duke's Mayo Bowl between Maryland and NC State when he said, "amongst all the illegal aliens down in El Paso it's UCLA 14 and Pittsburgh 6."

Hahn also looks like what we would expect:
