After a video of a white Alabama high school student screaming the N-word was posted on Snapchat, a black mother began to worry about the safety of her daughter.
The Birmingham News reported that Oak Mountain, AL mother Passion Walker was “livid” when she discovered the video of a white student at Spain Park High School repeatedly using the slur and claiming she “freaking loves” the term.
The video, released by the ABC 33/40 news station on Twitter Tuesday night, shows the girl screaming the term over and over while swinging on an unidentified apparatus.

In a subsequent Snapchat post, the white girl appeared to be aware that there was a backlash to her video.
“All you [expletive] “n*****s” in that group chat that got butt hurt by that, go [expletive] yourself because it’s the 21st Century,” the girl said, according to the Birmingham News. “You can sit there and call me cracker. Congratulations. I’m white. You’re black. No one gives a freaking damn that you’re black.”
In a Facebook post that was accompanied by the video, Walker decried the girl’s video and said she intends to take action.
“Really? Is this really what we’re teaching our children in Birmingham, AL?” she wrote. “So this is the type of ignorance my daughter deals with occasionally at school amongst her peers.”
“The parents of this young lady should be ashamed of themselves,” Walker continued. “Board of Education, here I come.”
The mother told the Birmingham News that the video was “alarming,” especially in the wake of a violent incident her daughter witnessed earlier in September when she was at a party in a teen venue where someone opened fire and injured seven people.
“She was exposed to violence in the most unimaginable way,” Walker said. “As a parent I am so afraid that my daughter won’t have the freedom to live a normal life.”
“Violence and racism plague our communities,” she added. “What are we coming to and where are we going when our children are not safe anywhere?”
Florida Republicans concoct a new scheme to make it harder for students to vote
Florida Republicans do not want to make voting easy for college students — a demographic that leans heavily Democratic.
Former GOP Secretary of State Ken Detzner, an appointee of Gov. Rick Scott, took that to the extreme in 2014, with an order banning county election officials from setting up any early voting sites on college campuses. Last year, following a lawsuit by the League of Women Voters, federal District Judge Mark Walker struck down that order as an unconstitutional burden on students' voting rights. As a result, some 60,000 people were able to vote early on 11 college campuses in Florida in 2018.
WATCH: Trump supporter arrested for smacking reporter’s phone outside Orlando rally
A Trump supporter was arrested during an altercation with a reporter and another man outside the president's Orlando campaign rally.
Video recorded by an Orlando Sentinel reporter shows a man wearing a red "Make America Great Again" hat and another man outside the Amway Center, where President Donald Trump officially kicked off his 2020 campaign.
The two men appear to be arguing with one another, although the second man also appears to be angry about something that took place inside the arena, when the man wearing the Trump hat notices the reporter recording them with a phone.
The real threat to America isn’t Trump’s ‘deep state’ — it’s Trump’s corrupt state: Robert Reich
Trump has been ramping up his “Deep State” rhetoric again. He’s back to blaming a cabal of bureaucrats, FBI and CIA agents, Democrats, and “enemies of the people” in the mainstream media, for conspiring to remove him from office in order to allow the denizens of foreign shi*tholes to overrun America.
But with each passing day it’s becoming clearer that the real threat to America isn’t Trump’s Deep State. It’s Trump’s Corrupt State.
Not since Warren G. Harding’s sordid administration have as many grifters, crooks and cronies occupied high positions in Washington.
