A student at the Palo Verde High School in Las Vegas this week was caught on camera going on a shocking racist rant that told black people to “burn in hell” while also attacking civil rights icons Martin Luther King, Jr. and Rosa Parks.
Local news station KNTV 13 reports that the video of the student’s rant was posted on Snapchat this week, where it quickly spread throughout the Palo Verde High community.
“F*cking n*ggers can burn in hell!” the student shouted in the camera. “F*ck Rosa Parks, I’ll slap that b*tch as well! N*ggers need to learn, n*ggers need to burn!”
Darren Sweikert, the principal at Palo Verde High, sent out a message to parents addressing the video shortly after it started spreading across social media.
“Behavior like this will not be tolerated at our school nor anywhere in the Clark County School District,” he said. “While no direct threat has been made to our school or specific students, this kind of dialogue is unacceptable.”
This is actually the second hate-related incident to occur in the school district this week. The Las Vegas Review-Journal reports that “a local rabbi discovered his daughter had come home from Escobedo Middle School with a note bearing a swastika and the message: ‘You don’t belong here.'”
Fox News reporter and right-wing conspiracy theorists planned to wiretap family of slain DNC staffer Seth Rich: report
The Daily Beast on Monday evening broke a bombshell report on a secret 2017 meeting in Texas on a right-wing conspiracy theory where espionage was discussed.
"One of their topics was responding to online critics of wealthy Texas businessman Ed Butowsky, who had recently been outed as a driving force behind a retracted Fox News story about murdered Democratic National Committee staffer Seth Rich," The Beast reported. "The group that gathered at Butowsky’s home included a conspiracy theorist, a Fox reporter fighting for her career, a former private intelligence contractor married to star journalist Lara Logan, and a Democratic PR operative who lost his business in the face of sexual assault allegations."
Maddow breaks down potential ‘direct financial connection’ between the Russian government and Donald Trump
MSNBC anchor Rachel Maddow read bombshell excerpts from a new book set for release on Tuesday.
The host interviewed David Enrich, finance editor at The New York Times, about his forthcoming book Dark Towers: Deutsche Bank, Donald Trump, and an Epic Trail of Destruction.
The host of "The Rachel Maddow Show" read excerpts from the book.
"There was no doubt that Deutsche Bank had extensive business dealings with Russia, and those dealings included acting as a conduit for dirty money to get out of Russia and into the western financial system," Enrich wrote.
Congress still has one big tool left to rein in Trump’s corruption: Oversight Committee Democrat
Senate Republicans may have managed to quash the impeachment trial without calling forth any new witnesses or seriously considering the evidence against President Donald Trump. And the president may feel vindicated and largely invulnerable as a result.
But, Rep. Raja Krishnamoorthi (D-IL) told CNN's Anderson Cooper on Monday, that doesn't mean Democrats don't have one last big play to rein in the president's abuses of power. They can use the first and strongest authority delegated to them: the power of the purse.
"What can Democrats really do when it comes to oversight of the president?" asked Cooper. "I mean, now that impeachment is over, does seem like there are fewer and fewer guardrails, if any."
