Some Henrico parents are outraged about a controversial video shown at Glen Allen High School. It tackles things like racial profiling and the school to prison to pipeline.
The YouTube video titled “Structural Discrimination: The Unequal Opportunity Race,” was shown to students at a Glen Allen High School Black History month program.
A concerned parent wrote a letter complaining the video is leading to tensions in school.
“Y’all are privileged. Get the–blank–over it,” read one of numerous tweets about the topic said the parent.
Don Blake’s granddaughter attended the assembly.
“They are sitting there watching a video that is dividing them up from a racial standpoint. It’s a White guilt kind of video,” said Blake. “I think somebody should be held accountable for this.”
