VIDEO DISCUSSION: University of Alabama sorority member racist social media post goes viral, and she is promptly expelled from school

NY Giants safety Landon Collins and other Alabama-affiliated athletes took to Twitter to respond to racist remarks made by Harley Barber, a member of the Alpha Phi sorority at the University of Alabama, on Martin Luther King Jr. Day.

"Alpa Phi, 'Be weary of the company you keep for they are a reflection of who you are or who you want to be.' Harley Barber didn't wake up this morning and decide to spew racist rhetoric for the first time in her life. Therefore, I believe I speak on behalf of my brothers and myself, when I say, the Bama football team does not need the support, cheers or high fives of anyone who condones this type of intolerant, hateful behavior. #BuiltByBama."

The school and the sorority expelled Barber. She is now back home in New Jersey and told the NY Post:

"I did something really, really bad. I don't know what to do and I feel horrible. I'm wrong and there's just no excuse for what I did."

Collins said he would be willing to speak with her.

Does Collins need to speak with her? Should he speak with her? Or, are the expulsion from school and her sorority enough to be teachable moments?
