College Admissions Association President Forced to Apologize for ‘All Lives Matter’ Remark

From the College Fix:

Inside Higher Ed reports that Phillip Trout’s initial apology statement did not include the talismanic phrase “black lives matter.” He simply apologized for having “offended and hurt so many people” with words that are “not right,” and promised the association’s board would spend more time “addressing issues of race and human relations.”

Apparently the social-media grousing against Trout (much of it private on Facebook) did not subside with that apology. By Saturday, when Trout handed the baton to incoming President Nancy Beane, he issued a second apology from the stage.
