I thought we were all Africans.

The original YouTube video has somewhat of an explanation of what went down in the in the description. This video was also posted here the day after it happened, the description from YouTube is pasted in the comments.

Well, that - was - er - different.

I could make out a few f-bombs and something about evolution but other than that, I have not a clue one what exactly set her off, except she was maybe on something or had a horrible day or time and was looking for an excuse to go off. I saw her literally going off on people. I think people like her need to learn to control themselves...

I tried watching the video, but couldn't understand a word she was saying (or more like, screaming). And I'm not familiar with what went on, but seems like, in her case, raw emotion is all that counts?

I think the lecturer made a comment that the natural selection process (evolution) kills off certain genetic traits (if they are not advantageous, etc.)

She's then got riled asking the lecturer "how the f**k has evolution killed black people?" ...because it seems to me that she view's it as white people killing black people.

She's either misunderstood him thinking that he's saying genocide a process of evolution or he's explained it in such a way that he's maybe said that the only way for a genetic family to be wiped out is by evolution, which is wrong either way you look at it.

Well obviously all Africans are black and everyone else is white.

Here's a direct link to the raw video, by the way:

The video on the first site worked for me, actually.  Crazy stuff.

 

Nice.  Evolution kills black people.  WTF?  Heh.  How do you even get to some statement like that?  Is she trying to say that the racist psychos like those in the KKK try to use it as an excuse to kill black people?  Does she mean the same ones who are creationist, fundamentalist Christians?
