High school marching band spells out racist word during football game

He said the group of students will be disciplined. Instead, on Friday, the high schoolers spelled out a four-letter racist slur against Black people.

Ford says two of the students are African-American, one is Asian and one is Hispanic.

Seven band members are given letters to spell out "Broncos", the name of the school's mascot during their performance.

Principal Bo Ford sent a letter to parents and the community Saturday apologizing for the "completely unacceptable, racial term". The band uses covers over the horn's mouth when sitting in the stands, but the covers should have been removed during the halftime performance, Ford said.

"In our interviews, the students- two of whom are African American, one of whom is Asian, and one of whom is Hispanic - indicated that this was intended as a joke, one that they thought would be amusing", Ford said. "It's just like saying the N-word, but this is worse because it's coming from students at a public high school".

Dani Carvajal backs sacked Julen Lopetegui as best coach he's ever had
Real Madrid defender Dani Carvajal has said sacked coach Julen Lopetegui is the best manager he has worked under. Last week, Toni Kroos described Lopetegui as a "great coach" and a "great person" in a tribute on social media.

"Not only was the appearance of this term during our halftime show hurtful and disrespectful to audience members, but it also was disappointing, as it does not reflect the standards and beliefs of our school and community", the administrator added.

Shawn Myers, whose son plays in the Brookwood marching band, told local Atlanta news station Fox 5 that she was shocked when she took notice of the band's formation.

The students who spelled "c**n" on the field have not yet spoken out. "They do not need to be back in that school until they learn that everyone is there for the same reason - regardless of color - to get an education". But Principal Ford said no punishments were expected.

A marching band at a Georgia high school spelled out a racist slur during a halftime show and now the school is reviewing its show procedures.
