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.'”
Trump campaign frantically announces new ‘polls’ to counter data that shows him losing — but there’s one problem
Frantically trying to contain the embarrassment after President Donald Trump fired his own internal pollsters for showing him trailing Democrats in key states he previously carried, the Trump campaign is now trying to claim that the bad polls are relying on old numbers and they have newer data that is much more favorable to the president.
But as CNN's Abby Phillip explained on Tuesday evening to anchor John Berman, there's a major problem with the new numbers — they aren't actually matching Trump up with Democrats.
"Despite what the president said publicly about this polling being fake, your sources tell a different story," said Berman.
BUSTED: Trump’s DOJ intervened to keep Paul Manafort from being imprisoned at Rikers Island
President Donald Trump's Department of Justice intervened to keep his former campaign chairman out of jail, The New York Times reported Monday.
Manafort had been expected to be moved to the Rikers Island jail complex.
"But last week, Manhattan prosecutors were surprised to receive a letter from the second-highest law enforcement official in the country inquiring about Mr. Manafort’s case. The letter, from Jeffrey A. Rosen, Attorney General William P. Barr’s new top deputy, indicated that he was monitoring where Mr. Manafort would be held in New York," the newspaper reported.
Four years ago this week: Trump’s escalator ride and the Charleston shooting. It’s not a coincidence
It was four years ago (plus one day) when Donald Trump descended his golden elevator at Trump Tower and announced to the world that he was running for president to make America great again. It was a memorable day, although I don't think anyone believed at the time it would be more than a bizarre blip in presidential campaign history.
It was a patented Trumpian spectacle, ridiculous and over the top. Needless to say, the speech itself was offensive and absurd. He called Mexicans rapists and criminals, bragged about his allegedly enormous wealth and said that the U.S. had never beaten China and Japan at anything. He lied about the crowd size and insulted the press. In other words, it was the template for all the speeches that were to come, throughout his campaign and his presidency.
