She said her full name and proudly said, “I am graduating today!” Making it about her, Kadia finished by saying, “I’ll like to say you took the microphone from me, so today is going to be all about me!” After that, she threw the microphone on the ground.

After the incident, Kadia explained that the teacher had lowered the microphone for several black students, stopping them from saying their full names. She wasn’t going to let the same happen to her, so she grabbed the microphone to say her full name.

Later on, Kadia talked about the incident on Instagram. She said that she was a black woman in America. So she was always right. She also said she wasn’t embarrassed and wouldn’t let others make her feel like she did something wrong.

It Seemed Like a Lie

But there were other videos that showed the teacher giving the microphone to black students earlier. This made many people on the internet angry, and they called Kadia a liar.

Some people who had seen what happened agreed with Kadia, saying she was right to do what she did. They thought she deserved her moment on such an important day. They felt that after spending so much money on the university, she shouldn’t have been treated that way.
