A Georgia high school expelled two white students after they posted a video to TikTok saying negative and racist stereotypes against Black people. 

On Thursday, the TikTok went viral after another student from Carrollton High School in Georgia posted it to Twitter.

Okay I know this probably isn’t going to get a lot of views but I just thought I’d show everyone how racist the kids at my school are. The girl’s name is Stephanie Freeman and she’s a senior at Carrollton High School. pic.twitter.com/jjsLtToSLH

In the video, the two teenagers make racist slurs and derogatory remarks about Black people such as, “go to jail,” “don’t have a dad,” and “eats watermelon and fried chicken.”

In a series of tweets, user @camden52801 says the girl in the video is a senior at the high school. She names both people in the clip.

btw this is not an isolated incident, especially not in Carrollton. I’ve only lived here for a year and am shocked by the amount of openly racist people I’ve met. (Only loud around other white people though) Stephanie and Jeff were just the first to get caught.

The TikTok shows the two students “mixing” several racist stereotypes together to “make N-word.”

“First we add Black,” the pair says, as they pour a cup of water down the sink. Next, they add “don’t have a dad,” and “eats watermelon and fried chicken” before repeating the process with the water. 

When the pair sees a cup labeled “makes good choices,” there’s nothing inside. 

Then, they pour a cup for “robbing people,” with the man in the video adding specifically “white people.”

In a statement to the New York Times on Friday, Carrollton City Schools Superintendent Mark Albertus said the students’ “behavior was unacceptable and is not representative of the district’s respect for all people.

“The racist behavior observed in the video easily violates this standard. They are no longer students at Carrollton High School,” he said.

Several celebrities and Twitter users denounced the video—and the teens in it—as racist and advocated for their expulsion.

EXPELL THEM. No other measure will be grave enough of a punishment.

District spokeswoman Julianne Foster told AJC that the students “will not be graduates of Carrollton High School.”

Albertus told the Times he is “deeply disturbed by the overt racist tone” of the video.

“This incident does not reflect the culture of Carrollton City Schools,” he said. “We are very proud of our diversity and so is our entire community. We don’t need to lose sight of this important attribute because of the actions of a few.”
