NEW YORK (1010 WINS) -- A white Columbia University student unleashed a racist tirade against a group of black classmate early Sunday morning, all of which was caught on video.

In the video, the man --  identified by the Columbia Spectator as Julian von Abele -- tells a group of students outside the campus' Butler Library, "White people are the best thing that happened to the world" and "We built modern civilization."

He also said, "I don't hate other people, I just love white men."

Von Abele followed the students to a campus dining spot.

Columbia denounced the incident, calling it a "racially-charged incident."

One student who was harassed said she hoped the university properly addresses the incident.

“I really hope that Columbia takes further action," Kwolanne Felix told the Columbua Spectator. "They should definitely try to talk to the students that were affected by that and ensure everyone’s OK because that’s really hard to internalize."
