Nevada high schooler threatens to burn black people and slap Rosa Parks in unhinged racist rant

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.'"
