(Newser) – An Atlanta private school principal who dissed "all the black people" during a graduation ceremony last week is unsurprisingly out of a job. "In light of recent events, the board of directors of TNT Academy has moved to dismiss Nancy Gordeuk as principal," the board says in a statement, per USA Today. After mistakenly dismissing students at the ceremony, Gordeuk said, "Look who's leaving—all the black people." She later apologized and told NBC News, "I didn't know 'black people' was a racist term. I didn't say the N-word or anything like that 'cause that isn't in my vocabulary." Friends of Gordeuk's son, who reportedly posted racist comments online, say his accounts were hacked, per Q13 Fox.
