Once again, Snapchat has become the platform of proof that anyone under the impression that racism is going to die out with older generations of white people is in for a rude awakening. It appears that white kids still view Snapchat as the perfect gathering space for Caucasian teens in predominately Caucasian school districts who stage mock slave auctions and George Floyd reenactments, use racial slurs, call for a return to slavery and for the deaths of all Black people, and, apparently, advocate for lynchings.
According to Al.com, Oneonta City Schools officials announced Wednesday that three students from the Alabama district reported a Snapchat message between several other off-campus students that was “offensive and divisive,” which is basically administrative official speak for, “racist, violent and very on-brand for American white supremacy.”
“I’m proud of the students for reporting this to their administrators as it speaks highly of them and their rapport with their administrators,” Oneonta City Schools wrote in a Facebook post. “The administrators immediately researched the Snapchat messages to gather facts and a decision was made to take immediate disciplinary action against those involved. Our schools will not tolerate this type of behavior.”
