Middle school girl records classmates chanting racial slur during bus ride home
After students piled into their middle school bus for the ride home Tuesday, a noisy chorus began: “One, two, three, four, how many n------ are in my store?”
The use of a racial epithet shocked a 13-year-old African American girl sitting among her classmates, and she grew upset as it was repeated with apparent glee. She recorded the moment on her cellphone and showed her parents a seven-second clip when she got to her Rockville, Md., home.
The family posted the video on YouTube, Facebook and Twitter, decrying what they said was the first time their daughter had encountered racism and expressing dismay that it had happened in the prosperous Washington suburb in Montgomery County.
