Protesters gathered Thursday at Prior Lake High School to voice their opposition to a allegedly racist video that emerged from a student. Sarah Abraham, 16, traveled to the campus to recount her own experience at Apple Valley's Eastview H.S. and previously at Burnsville's Metcalf Middle School.

Hundreds gathered outside Prior Lake High School on Thursday, protesting a video that surfaced this week showing two students using racist language to harass a 14-year-old student.

The demonstration included students from surrounding school districts outraged at the video that appeared on social media. Another student, a 15-year-old cousin of the intended target, said the video was a breaking point for both of them.

The older girl discovered the video in a group chat, and when she found out it was about her younger cousin, her "heart dropped."
