A California high school student who cracked jokes about whipping slaves was beaten up after returning from an unspecified disciplinary action.
The Clovis student took part in a Snapchat conversation with other members of the Future Farmers of America, and screen shots of the exchange were widely circulated on Twitter, reported the Fresno Bee.
The teens referred to black people as slaves and the N-word, and joked about taking a jet “over to Africa and smuggle a new one over.”
One teen, identified as “Williammm,” shared an illustration of a white slave owner whipping a slave, captioned with: “I’m punishing him.”
“I caught my house (N-word) looking at chevys on Craigslist so I lynched him and his kids,” said another teen, named “Jackson.”
A Buchanan High School student who was punished for his participation in the chat returned to school Thursday, but it’s not clear whether he was suspended or been on independent study.
A video circulating on social media shows a black classmate approach the white teen, who says he’s not doing anything.
The black student then begins punching the white student, and the fight spills into a nearby classroom.
School staff intervened within seconds to stop the fight, said a school district spokeswoman.
“What is shown on the seconds-long video appears to clearly violate the district’s student discipline policies,” said Kelly Avants, spokeswoman for Clovis Unified School District. “To underscore the unacceptable nature of such behavior, any student found to be in violation of our student discipline, zero tolerance or bullying policies faces disciplinary consequences.”
The school refused to identify the students, but classmates said the white teen had taken part of the Snapchat conversation.
‘Go look at President Trump’s Twitter’: Portland right-wing rally organizer claims ‘mission success’
The organizer of a far-right rally in Portland, Oregon claimed the event was a "success" after President Donald Trump attacked Portlandiers protesting the group.
"A confluence of protesters on opposite ends of the ideological spectrum merged on Portland’s waterfront Saturday in a tense but relatively uneventful face-off that brought national attention, including a tweet in the hours before the protest by President Trump decrying the city’s signature anti-fascist movement," the Oregonian reported Saturday.
When a similar right-wing rally in Charlottesville, Virginia killed Heather Heyer, Trump argued there were "fine people" on both sides of the "Unite the Right" rally.
Why was Jeffrey Epstein buying size 5 women’s panties — while in jail?
The Miami Herald has another bombshell report on Jeffrey Epstein, who died in a Manhattan jail while waiting to stand trial on federal sex crimes charges.
"A decade ago, during a brief stint in Palm Beach County Jail, convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein made an odd purchase at the facility’s store: two pairs of small women’s panties, size 5," the Herald reported Saturday night.
The newspaper noted, "the panties raise questions about why a childless male inmate, accused of sexually abusing girls as young as 14, would be allowed to buy female undergarments so small that they wouldn’t fit an average-sized adult woman."
