We gotta admit… the community rallying against them is nice to see. “We won’t let something like this break us… we’ve been through the hurricane”
If they haven’t seen it already, an emergency faculty meeting this morning at Gainesville High School has made all teachers aware of a controversial YouTube video made by two of their students. Eight Gainesville police officers were brought to the GHS campus on Thursday, as concerns were raised over student safety after the 14-minute YouTube video went viral the day before. The video shows two GHS girls ranting about African Americans
GHS Principal David Shelnutt says the video was first brought to his attention on Wednesday during lunch time.
Shelnutt wouldn’t comment on disciplinary actions taken, but says the two girls are leaving Gainesville High, and are no longer students there. “There’s no place for comments like that- that video here at GHS, there’s no place for that in the Alachua County Public School System, and my opinion, no place for that in society in general,” he said.
According to reports not confirmed by the school, the girls withdrew from GHS and are now being home schooled.
