A video of students singing a racist song on a Maryland school bus has gone viral, and it’s causing outrage.
Uploaded to Facebook by B. Jamar Long — whose daughter recorded the incident — the video shows white students shouting, “1, 2, 3, 4… how many ni**ers are in my store.”
“So our daughter had to experience racism today on her school bus from Robert Frost Middle School in Montgomery County MD.,” Long wrote on Facebook. “I am outraged and I refuse to let this slide. Please help me make this viral.”
In just one day, the video has been viewed nearly 440,000 times and shared over 25,000.
Montgomery County Public Schools are investigating the video.
“The school is aware and is investigating the incident. It was a Montgomery County School bus. They will be sending a letter out to their community today and making it clear that this type of behavior is unacceptable and does not represent the values of their school and community,” a rep said in a statement.
