“Lynch them all!” Racist rant by two North Carolina teens goes viral
Two unnamed teens in Greensboro, North Carolina are facing discipline from their school after going on a racist rant against Black people and posting it on social media.
According to WFMY, the two unidentified shirtless boys are students at North Gilford High School in Greensboro and in the video they both use racial slurs openly disparaging black people.
“F–ing lynch them all, man,” one of the boys says. “Send them to the back of the motherf–ing bus, put them b—hes back in the fields and teach them a f—ing lesson,” the other boy says.
The teens also said that Black people are hypocritical for preaching religion while also enjoying rap music before unleashing more racial slurs.
“They’ll be out here f—ing my wife, stealing my job, eating my food stamps,” one of the teens says. “We do not f–k with n—ers, n—ers do not want no smoke, so come at me, n—ers,” the other says.
The video quickly went viral and the Guilford County Schools got wind of it.
“Guilford County Schools does not tolerate racist behavior,” the school district tweeted in response to the video. “Appropriate action has been taken to discipline the students involved. We’re working to reinforce our district’s core values, which include diversity and equity, as well as empathy and integrity.”
“We’re working closely with our diversity office and National Conference for Community and Justice to provide training for both staff and students so we can make sure all of our campus is a place people can feel comfortable and inclusive and that are harassment and discrimination free,” Tony Watlington, the chief of schools, said. He also called the video “hateful.”
The school district called in the National Conference for Community and Justice to give a training for both students and staff on Monday in response to the video.
“The students have been appropriately disciplined according to our code of conduct,” Watlington said. “We also believe that kids who make very bad choices can change and can make improvements and we think it’s the role of adults to help kids make those improvements.”
