Utah school investigating students' video with apparent racial slur

Utah school investigating students' video with apparent racial slur

The 10-second video, which can be viewed below, appears to have been filmed inside a auto and shows the five girls saying "F**k n*****s" multiple times while laughing.

'We are trying to determine when the video was made, where it was filmed, why the students would engage in such conduct, and how the clip ended up on social media.

A Twitter user criticized the girls this week, posting, "I thought people were better than this especially my so called 'friends'".

School officials said that information suggested the girls were saying a different phrase that generated the offensive phrase in video editing software that played it backwards.

After interviewing the students, Findlay said the group was "playing around saying gibberish words" and then tried the random phrase, which produced the racial slur.

Trade Representative Michael Froman urged that the U.S. proposals be considered opening offers, saying "it's a negotiation ". Negotiators for Mexico and Canada expressed frustration after the talks concluded.

While the video was apparently recorded during fall break, Weber High School's policies cites that students can not use offensive language.

They in fact uttered the words "surgeon cuff", the teachers said, and the app transformed their words into the racial slur.

The video was apparently filmed previous year over fall break in a auto that was not on school property or participating in a high school activity, Findlay said.

"We are taking the matter very seriously and will be thorough in the investigation".

'Certainly, there are no excuses for this type of behavior, but they are still children in a sense and hopefully this will be a learning experience for them and others'. But no, one of the girls in the video brought it out a year later and posted it.

At the same time, district officials have discussed a possible need to protect the teens in the video, Findlay said.

"The students were on a trip outside of school on their own personal time", School district spokesman Lane Findlay told the Salt Lake Tribune.

Findlay said that girls could face anything from counseling and being kicked off the cheerleading team to expulsion from school. "It's just completely inappropriate", Findlay said. 'Obviously, they knew what they were doing.

Findlay said that the students have been "very apologetic" for the video, but would be held accountable. "Racism, whether intentional or not, has no place in our schools or society".
