White youths acting stupidly captured their stupidity on Snapchat footage.
White boys on a middle school football team are seen in a hazing type of activity that involved demeaning black youths, who also are apparently on the team. Watch a TV news report, above, that shows some of what went on, along with condemnation by black parents.
Rather than engage in foolishness, racially aware white youths should practice racial solidarity, helping each other advance in school so that as adults they can gain control of the legal system, higher education, and the entertainment industry. We’re in an undeclared race war and we need leaders at the top in government and industry who reject egalitarianism.
Police are investigating clips shared on Snapchat that see white student athletes from a Virginia school pinning down black students and simulating sex while shouting racially charged comments.
Parents were outraged over the incident, which occurred in the Short Pump Middle School locker room on Oct. 13, while advocate groups have called for a federal investigation, KSLA reported.
The clip in question starts off with a simple question: “Ever wonder what happens in a football locker room?”
A football player’s parent — who was not identified — told WTVR all the black football players were held down on the floor while their white teammates “dry humped them” and shouted racist comments.
“What’s up with you blacks,” one student can be heard saying in the video.
Another says: “We gonna f— the black outta these African-American children from Uganda.”
In an open letter to parents, officials explained the school had been aware of the video since Monday, prompting many to wonder why they waited so long to take action.
Principal Thomas McAuley called the actions in the Snapchat clips “appalling, disturbing and inexcusable,” adding he hopes to put procedures in place to prevent such things from occurring again in the future.
“We will include staff, parent, administrator and student representatives in this dialogue,” the letter reads. “Our hope is to use this very unfortunate event as a meaningful learning opportunity.”
The Short Pump Middle School football team has already forfeited the rest of their season in light of the footage. And while they will no longer play any other games this season, officials said they will continue to hold practices.
