Two students from Covington Catholic High School defended their school’s reputation on “Fox & Friends,” and even defended past students wearing blackface at sporting events.
Sam Schroder told host Steve Doocy that wearing blackface was just “showing our school spirit”:
I’d just explain it as showing our school spirit. We had many themes, like nerd, business, white-out, blue-out, black-out, as you’ve seen in the video… We haven’t been able to wear black paint because of the video, but I know the kids meant nothing by it, it’s just showing school spirit.
