By now you have probably seen the horrific video of a white Kentucky student assaulting and calling a black student the N word.
According to NBC the video shows Sophia Rosing — visibly intoxicated and struggling to stay standing — striking at Kylah Spring while repeatedly calling her a racial slur.
Later in the video, Rosing tries to kick Spring and punch another student — who also appears to be a Black woman — as they try to restrain Rosing and put her in a chair, though it is unclear whether she actually struck either.
Rosing also attempts to charge Spring with a shopping cart in the video.
The video ends by showing a white male police officer handcuffing Rosing in the dorm as she continues to repeat the racial slur and struggles to remain standing.
During the arrest, she kicked and bit a police officer and told him she has “lots of money” and gets “special treatment,” according to a police report.
Sophia Rosing, 22 was eventually arrested and charged.

Now Sophia has decided to voluntarily withdraw from the university, her lawyer told NBC News on Tuesday morning.
“She’s going to withdraw from the university today or tomorrow,” attorney Fred Peters said of Sophia Rosing, 22, a senior who was captured on viral video repeatedly hurling a racist slur and physically attacking two Black students Sunday.
“She’s a very, very embarrassed and humiliated young lady,” he said.
Peters added that he is “getting her into some kind of treatment program and sensitivity program to help her through this situation.”
He said Rosing will receive treatment for “several things” but declined to elaborate further.
“She’s going to get help, that’s all I can say,” he said.
Rosing was charged with third-degree assault on a police officer, fourth-degree assault, and second-degree disorderly conduct, an online record from the Fayette County Detention Center showed.
She was held on $10,000 bond before being released Monday night, following a court appearance in which she pleaded not guilty and waived a formal arraignment, WLEX reported.
As a condition of her release, a judge ordered Rosing must have no contact with Spring, stay away from the dorm where the assault occurred, and consume no alcohol, WLEX reported.
She is due back in court Nov. 15, her lawyer said.
Kylah Spring did a storytime about the entire incident, watch below:
#SophiaRosing is the actual worst, problem is there are so many more out there. Shame on #universityofkentucky for not expelling her immediately, how will your student feel safe? U allow them to be spoken to like that? Physically assaulted and still no expulsion? Sickening.

Before the young woman at University of Kentucky is expelled she will unenroll. Quiet as it’s kept it wouldn’t shock me if they would offer her that option. 🙄 The university should move swiftly and expel her. Anyways, go vote!

That young lady at University of Kentucky exercised so much restraint when being assaulted physically and called racial slurs by a drunk white girl. I strive to have that kind of decorum cuz I know for a fact I would be in handcuffs.

I'm not sharing that video with the University of Kentucky student, but what I will say is that praising the victim for her restraint isn't as commendable as you think it is.
Black Women should not have grin and bear it while experiencing violence to earn you respect. 1/2
