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.
