A video titled “Stuyvesant High School Students Spewing Racist Hatred” hit the web yesterday and created a firestorm.
The five-minute, 41-second video shows a group of young white teenagers rapping: “You so wack, b—-, chilling in the projects. …,” the rap goes. “You black and you so f—– grimy. … What’cha gonna do? Call your black squad n——?”
Stuyvestant HS is only 2 percent Black and a recent report showed that out of the seven specialized high schools in the five boroughs, only four percent of the students admitted were Black, six percent were Latino, 13 percent were Native American/Alaskan, while 35 percent were Asian and 30 percent were White. More than 70 percent of the New York City student population is either Black or Latino.
