It’s by now a rote story. A video surfaces online of white people engaging in racist behavior or rhetoric spurred on by each other and the ascendancy of a white supremacist to the Oval Office. They’re exposed, shamed. Rinse and repeat.
It’s an exhausting cycle, with no indication that it’ll slow anytime soon. Nevertheless, it’s important that every time this happens we share these videos so that the participants are forced to correct their behavior, and in the future people are less likely to engage in such disgusting displays.
The latest racist video going viral is of several teenage girls in a car, laughing and yelling “f*ck n*ggers.” The video was posted to Instagram. It appears that the girls recorded themselves saying a gibberish phrase intentionally engineered so that when played in reverse, the offensive racial statement was clear.
The caption of the video “sergen cuff,” when recorded and replayed backward sounds like “f*ck n*ggers.”
Deseret News, a local Utah publication, reports that police are currently investigating the video. The school which the girls attend is currently looking into whether or not the video was recorded on school property.
