Howell HS Students Send Racists Tweets

Students at Howell High School in Michigan, sent racist tweets after their all-white basketball team defeated a mixed – raced opponent.

Grand Blanc lost 54-49 to Howell in the Class A regional final at Linden High School Thursday.

Among the Twitter messages posted after the game the night of March 13:

“Not only did we beat Grand Blanc but we’re all white. Howell’s the definite winner tonight.”

“All hail white power. #HitlerIsMyDad”

“Tonight was probably one of the most racists nights of my life. I heard so many slurs and expressions. I also said a few things…”

Hastags with other tweets included #kkk, #lightthehcross, #rosaparks, #wewhite.

Howell High School’s principal says the students who tweeted the racist remarks have been disciplined, but would not say what specific action was taken.

So, the election of Barack Obama proves that there isn’t racism in the United States right?

It’s sad that these students felt it was ok to tweet such vial, ignorant and insensitive remarks, but what’s more sad is that I’m hardly surprised. These kids just expressed publically the bigotry that’s spoken privately around their dinner table.

    Funny how nothing has truly happened to them but the young black boy who held up the number 3 was suspended
