Students at the University of Florida are speaking out after a faculty member forcibly rushed graduates, most of them African-American, off stage during one of the school's commencement ceremonies over the weekend. 

UF President W. Kent Fuchs issued an apology after videos of the incident surfaced online. Check out some more from the moment below:
