Middle School end football season after players’ racial video goes viral


A snapchat video with racially insensitive comments made by members of a middle school football team has resulted in the termination of the team’s season in Virginia.

In the video, which is shown in part below, includes white players from Short Pump Middle School in a Richmond suburb simulating sex acts on their black peers. The video is also said to have included racially charged language.

In one clip, a white player is simulating a sex act on a black player while he says, “We gonna f_ck the black out of these African children from Uganda.”

The team had three games remaining on its schedule, and not all players participated in the video.

According to local news reports, players will still meet at practice times, but instead of preparing for upcoming games they will participate in mandatory discussions on racial intolerance, ethics and accountability.

Police said they were also investigating the content of the video.

Some parents are outraged that the entire season has ended early, especially for the students who did not participate in the video. Others are outraged over the video and wonder if the school is truly equipped to address the issue of racial intolerance.

Some of the video can been seen in the news report below.
