A group of White teens in Southlake, Texas, is in trouble at school over a video in which they say the N-word.
The group, who attend Caroll Senior High School, can be seen chanting the racial slur and saying, “We up on that Black sh*t,” in a Facebook video that’s been shared hundreds of time, according to DiversityInc.
Though the video was not taped on school grounds, school officials said the group violated the student code of conduct. It’s unclear what punishment they received.
“We are extremely disappointed that any of our students would be involved in making a video involving a racial slur … While we have certainly had to investigate and respond to individual incidents of inappropriate language and use of racial slurs in the past, having a video posted in such a public forum requires a very direct approach by community leaders,” the school district said in a statement to WFAA.
