GROSSE POINTE FARMS (WWJ/AP) — The principal of a suburban Detroit high school says three students were among a group of teens who recorded a video that included racist statements about African-Americans.
Grosse Pointe South Principal Moussa Hamka says in an email Wednesday that comments in the video, which circulated on social media, are “deplorable” and violate the school’s code of conduct.READ MORE: Michigan Matters: Fighting for Inclusion, Detroit's Place in Civil Rights History
Hamka says several students found the video offensive. Officials say those involved in the video could face consequences.

“They’re going to be owned by white people. White people are going to be the dominance of the country,” part of the video said. “We’re not going to put them in coffins, we’re going to put them in the river.”READ MORE: Karen Carter, and Others Metro Detroiters Chipped In To Help Salvation Army’s Bed and Bread Radiothon
Hamka says “the majority of our students and community members do not accept and will not tolerate such bigotry.”
In March, the school suspended students photographed with a racial slur on their bodies and another who had a message on her leg in support of marijuana. The photo was repeatedly shared on social media.
