A group of middle school football players are coming under fire after they posted a video online where they simulate sexual acts on the black players in a school locker room while hurling out racial slurs. Yes, this is happening in 2017 for all those people who wear up and down racism is gone.
Now, police are investigating the contents of the SnapChat video posted by students at Short Pump Middle School in Richmond, Va. In the clip, it starts off with text that reads, “Ever wonder what happens in the football locker room?”
White students are then seen pinning down black students on the floor as they act like they're perform sexual acts on him from the back. “What’s going on? He’s (expletive) a black,” one student said.
It’s clear the black student didn’t want anything to do with this.
“We gonna (expletive) the black outta these African-American children from Uganda,” according to a caption placed over the video.
One of the mother’s who’s child was victimized by the white students spoke to local news station and here’s what she said:
"You see kids in the locker room forcing kids over the bench. You see kids on the ground thrusting on other kids making racial slurs as they're thrusting …You see the kids asking to get up and to stop and screaming,” said the parent who doesn’t want to be identified to protect her son.

Henrico County Schools Spokesman Andy Jenks released a statement addressing the video:
“We are aware of the video, the contents of which are offensive and wrong. The school division will take appropriate action in accordance with our normal procedures. Beyond that, federal law prohibits school divisions from sharing additional information about students.”
The Henrico County School Board has decided to terminate the remaining games in the team’s football season. A letter was issued to Henrico County Public Schools that reads:
“As a consequence of the students’ actions that came to the school’s attention on Monday, the remaining football games for the SPMS football team will be forfeited. We acknowledge that all team members were not involved in the incident; however, we believe there are important lessons/reminders that should be reinforced with all team members.”
Short Pump Middle School football team had one regular-season game and two postseason games left in its season.

Do you think this was enough punishment for the acts that were committed? We don't. Hopefully, more punishments will be distributed once the investigation is complete, but we’re not holding our breath. Short Pump Middle School is predominately white, and, unfortunately, we all know how that goes.
