Baruch Club Faces Backlash After Posting Racially Charged Video

BARUCH COLLEGE–Pre-Recorded Friday Nights, a Baruch College-sanctioned club, posted a controversial video to its Instagram page on March 7, garnering backlash from student leaders of prominent black organizations on campus.

The now-deleted video features PFN President Marwa Mouaki, who said, “Hi, I’m Marwa. I’m the president of PFN. I’m African-American, so I can say n—.” The video stopped playing after Mouaki pronounced the first letter, so Mouaki was not actually taped saying the n-word.

But students feel that the video was done in poor taste. Ceronne Mitchell, the president of the Caribbean Student Association, called it “disgusting.”
