#cyberbullying | #cyberbully | Video of Alamo Heights Student Using N-Word Prompts Examination of Racism in Small, Affluent School District

In the past week, hundreds of Twitter and Instagram users circulated a video showing three white, female Alamo Heights High School students laughing as one girl uses a racial slur. The posts garnered hundreds of likes and retweets.

The posts also started a conversation on social media about racism in the small, affluent school district with a mostly white student body as Twitter users posted screenshots of other students using racial slurs. Anonymous Instagram accounts commented on the original video with threats of violence for the three girls involved.

District officials denounced racism and called the posting of racial slurs online by their students “absolutely unacceptable,” in a statement released Friday.
