Ricketts, in the video, was heard calling out to the staff at the mall, asking them to talk to their people in South Africa. She asked them what the Nigerians being killed did to deserve what they did to them.

The lady also told the staff to stop pretending like they do not know what is going on in South Africa.

Meanwhile, on October 29, 1885, Clara Belle Williams, who is on record as the first African American graduate of the New Mexico State University (NMSU), was born.

She graduated as a valedictorian in 1905 after pursuing education on scholarship at the Prairie View Normal and Independent College.

Facebook.com reports that during her time at the NMSU, several of her professors prevented her from entering the classroom and she therefore had to take notes from the hallway.
