Archived: Texas High School Students Chant the N-Word: Video

In Southlake, Texas, Carroll Senior High School officials reprimanded a group of white students who were captured on video spewing racist tirades.


In the video, which has been shared on Facebook hundreds of times, the teens girls and boys are chanting the n-word and at one point can be heard saying, “We up on that Black [expletive].”

The video wasn’t taped on school property, but it alarmed administrators enough to charge the students with a violation of the student code of conduct, but they did not say what the consequences would be. It was speculated on Facebook that the teens only received a three-day suspension.

Afterward, Carroll ISD released a statement that read, in part, “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.”

It’s not clear what prompted the video. But if there were any doubts to the logic that millennials and Generation Zers are tolerant and colorblind, this is a clear indication that the younger “progressives” can be just as racist as their parents and grandparents.
