Utah high school students pose for a repulsive KKK-themed ‘hunting’ photo

Published

on

A Utah high school has come under scrutiny after a racist photo of two students circulated online.

According to NBC News, two Hurricane high school students posed in blackface while another person dressed as a member of the KKK is seen grabbing their collar. The photo was posted on Snapchat with the caption “N*gga hunting 2019: I’m glad I could fill my tags this year.”

A Confederate flag is also hanging in the background of the photo. The third individual standing up was identified as a “non-student adult.”

Steve Dunham, the Washington County School District director of communications, condemned the photo.

“Words of disgust and sadness are insufficient to describe our feelings regarding the image that was brought to our attention the evening of May 16. This repulsive photo does not represent the concern, love, and care of Washington County School District,” Dunham wrote in a statement.

Dunham also confirmed that the photo was not taken on school grounds, but said that disciplinary actions would begin immediately. Also, Hurricane City Police Department said they were aware of the photo and that an investigation is underway. They also asked people not to share the photo as a way to stop the hateful message from spreading.

"The reports of the conditions for migrant children at the border should shock all of our consciences. Those created in the image of God should be treated with dignity and compassion, especially those seeking refuge from violence back home. We can do better than this," Moore wrote.

 ENOUGH IS ENOUGH 

Trump endorses killing journalists, like Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi. Online ad networks are now targeting sites that cover acts of violence against dissidents, LGBTQ people and people of color.
