Repulsive video emerges of racist white teen’s lynching rant — and it’s so abhorrent police are involved

Published

on

Police are investigating a racist video recorded by a white Connecticut teen in which he repeatedly screams a racial slur and threatens to “lynch” black people.

The Meriden, CT Record-Journal reported that the video shows an alleged Southington High School student challenging people to fight him and claiming he’s going to burn crosses in their yards.

The video is under investigation by the school’s superintendent and police, the newspaper noted.

In the Snapchat video, the young white man is first heard screaming “stop being such a f*cking n*gger” before saying he’s going to “lynch every single f*cking n*gger in this g*ddamn group chat.”

He continued to use racial epithets and claimed he “hung 12 black men from a tree just this night.”

“You just f*cking wait,” the teen said. “I’ll burn a cross in your yard.”

“You wanna get offended by me saying n*gger?” he continued. “Well how about I come over there and lynch you like one.”

A tweet with the video named the teen but Raw Story could not independently corroborate the claim.

This is important, wrote Barber, because the roots of businesses forcing their workers to rely on tips for a proper wage is deeply rooted in America's history of racial tension.

Black GOP strategist called on the carpet by Joy Reid for trying to sidestep Trump’s racist rally as ’empowering’ voters

Published

An "AM Joy" panel on MSNBC descended into talking over each other as host Joy Reid confronted a black GOP consultant over Donald Trump's racist rally in North Carolina.

Presenting the conservative point of view, Republican strategist Lenny McAllister was asked point-blank by the host, "Lenny, hold on a second, because you as a man of color yourself -- do you feel comfortable in a party that does rallies like that?"

McAllister pushed back saying he had walked away from just those type of events, before admitting, "To the greater point. They're using racism as an avenue through which people feel empowered, they lend you the loyalty, they give you the vote. What Republicans need to do is continue to empower people, but not by using racism and not by using phobia."
