A Jordan High School athlete in North Carolina filmed himself using the N-word repeatedly and endorsing President Donald Trump.
The student, who plays football and lacrosse, reportedly sent the video to a female student who tweeted it.
Durham Public Schools spokesman Chip Sudderth claimed the video was not recorded during the school year, with school equipment or on school grounds, notes The Herald-Sun.
Jordan High student body president Aminah Jenkins, said some Jordan students will protest and boycott football games if the student plays:
People are pretty upset, and they want something to be done. Our main concern is not his political views, it’s his views toward women and his use of the N-word that’s the main concern. That’s what’s got people so upset.
Jordan Principal Susan Taylor sent a robo call to parents to remind them of the painfully obvious fact that the video does not “reflect the values of our faculty, staff, student body, community, or the impacted families.”
