"We are aware of racially insensitive comments shared on social media earlier today and are taking steps to address the matter. Texas Tech University does not condone the abhorrent speech and views expressed in the video. As an institution of higher learning, we are strongly committed to diversity and inclusion. We foster and promote the freedom of expression, but condemn the use of hateful and derogatory language. As American citizens, we value our protections under the First Amendment, even when we do not support the content of a message."
