An investigation has been launched at North Cobb High School in Georgia after a student allegedly said he want to 'exterminate all n****s'
According to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, the comments were originally posted to Snapchat, but a parent posted the video to Facebook. In it, a student allegedly talked about a desire to bring back slavery, expressing not only an admiration for the person who assassinated Abraham Lincoln but also a desire to “exterminate all n*****s.”
While the Cobb County School District has not commented on whether the student in question was punished, the parent who posted the video said that the student was suspended for three days because of the comments.
The administration for North Cobb High School also sent out a letter condemning the student’s remarks.
“The North Cobb High School administration and staff does not condone this type of profane and bigoted behavior in our school,” the letter said. “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.”
It’s a rise of racism from young people that we see today. It’s dangerous for all of us, normalizing racist behavior will lead to a tragic outcome. That should be punished, no excuses.
