Santaluces High School In Florida On Alert After 2 Teens Post Racist Video (VIDEO)

“To clarify Racism- it has to do with the notion that superiority exists based on race (which is typically socially constructed by visible differences). I agree that people have a right to their opinions although video technology is a scary thing- it can be leaked and exposed. For me, it is Not specifically the antics, the mimicking, or the stereotyping that is offensive - this you can find in comedy shows depicting certain subcultures. It is where this humor is coming from--these girls truly Believe they are better. "I used to be like a preppy pretty ..girl" (White preppy girls are pretty, Black girls are not), "I feel kind of bad for them though" (pitying an entire group of people from a pedestal) . They are kids though and clearly have very limited experiences. I could barely watch the whole video because I'm embarrassed for them that it leaked. BUT! It's a lesson in learning. I hope they learn what "peace and love" is all about as they grow up.”
