The principal of a Virginia high school apologized this week after a racist song was played over the loud speakers at a football game where the visiting team was from a predominately black high school.
Former football player Lucas Harris told WWBT that he was at Glen Allen High School in Richmond for the homecoming game when he heard racist parody of the theme song from Disney’s DuckTales.
“At first, I was wondering if I hear that right,” Harris recalled. “We were all very offended, all very surprised.”
The song, which was created by The Red Bar Radio Show, is full of racist stereotypes and includes over a dozen uses of the N-word in less than a minute. The song was reportedly played during team the warm-up period for about 15 seconds.
Video of the parody has been removed from YouTube multiple times for violating rules against hate speech.
“I hate f*cking n****rs / n****rs suck d*ck,” one lyric says. “Look at n****rs trying to raise money / But they can’t ’cause they spend all their money / They’re n****rs and they’re so f*cking n****rs / I hate them.”
On Saturday, Glen Allen High School Principal Gwen E. Miller issued a statement apologizing to John Marshall High School.
“We regularly review play lists, and I am at a loss as to how such a song was included,” Miller explained. “Please know this unfortunate incident does not reflect the broader Glen Allen High School community. We are a diverse and inclusive community and are appalled that the instigator of this event has sent a message contrary to our beliefs and practices.”

President Donald Trump is openly admitting he's wasting no time, fast-tracking the replacement for Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg to help him during a contested election.
Speaking on "Fox & Friends," Trump on Monday said because of "fake ballots," he does not want a 4-4 Supreme Court ruling on the election, should there be one. There is zero evidence of fake ballots.
Trump suggests though he wants a confirmation vote before the elections, citing election disputes and his baseless claim of “fake ballots” being filled out. We don’t want a 4-4 tie at the court, he said
Trump tells Fox & Friends that RBG’s dying wish may be a hoax written by Adam Schiff
President Donald Trump on Monday told "Fox & Friends" that he believed Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg's dying wish may have been a "hoax" concocted by Democrats.
During the interview, the president was asked about Ginsburg saying that she did not want to be replaced until after the 2020 presidential election.
"I don't know that she said that, or was that written out by Adam Schiff and Schumer and Pelosi," the president said. "I would be more inclined to the second."
As CNN fact checker Daniel Dale notes, Ginsburg's dying wish was "conveyed by the granddaughter."
