Georgia teens expelled from high school for racist video on social media

Two students at a high school in Carrollton, Georgia have been expelled following a racist video that was posted online.

The seniors who attended Carrollton High School posted the video to TikTok on Thursday, showing the two using the n-word and other derogatory statements about African Americans.

The video shows a boy and a girl standing in the bathroom with labeled cups of water, mimicking a cooking show wherein they make a racist statement and "add" it to the pot. The girl says, "First we have 'black'." then the boy pours water into the sink. "Next we have 'don't have dad'."

The other labeled cups poured into the sink read "Eat watermelon and fried chicken," "Rob people," and "Go to jail" with the pair skipping the cup labeled "Make good choices". The girl looks at the cup labeled "Make good choices" and says, "Oh, there's nothing there,".

The video gained lots of attention online with users criticizing the racist video. It also caught the attention of Carrollton High's Superintendent, Mark Albertus.

Dr. Mark Albertus released a statement Friday about the students saying, "behavior was unacceptable and is not representative of the district's repsec for all people,".

"The racist behavior observed in the video easily violates this standard. They are no longer students at Carrollton High School."
