A student, whose name wasn’t disclosed, posted to Snapchat a video, in which he desired to bring back slavery, celebrated assassination of Abraham Lincoln and dreamed about “exterminating all n***s.”
One of his classmates’ parents saw the video and brought it to Facebook, shocked with the student’s behavior. The parent said that the student was suspended for three days. Though, no official data on the incident was issued.
The school administration sent a text to parents alerting them to an internal investigation. A letter sent to parents decried the message in the social media post.
“The North Cobb High School administration and staff does not condone this type of profane and bigoted behavior in our school,” the letter stated. “The message was deplorable and we denounce everything about it. We take this matter very seriously and we are addressing it in accordance with Cobb County School District policies and procedures.
“We will use this as an opportunity to remind ourselves why we are here and that we, as a school community, stand for respect and inclusion. This must be a place where all are free to learn in a safe and welcoming environment.”
This wasn’t the first case of racism at school.
At the beginning of the month a racist social media post by a white student sparked a protest in a Baltimore school. And later similar thing happened in Spring Grove school. Racist bullying at Wake Forest High School lasted for months before turning into a fight.
The quantity of cases is really disturbing.
