How Do You Make Your Yearbook One To Remember? Answer: "Ni**er Shirts"

NYDNHigh school seniors in Phoenix sparked social media outrage after they posed for a tasteless picture wearing shirts that spell out a racial slur, according to the Phoenix New Times.

Six Desert Vista High School students dressed in black T-shirts emblazoned with gold letters and arranged themselves to spell the N-word, grinning as they posed for a picture.

The girls were wearing the shirts for senior picture day, when a larger group of students wore lettered tees and posed to spell out “Best You’ve Ever Seen Class of 2016.”

The school district said it won’t release the details of the disciplinary sentence the girls received, but the Phoenix paper wrote that it was rumored to be a five-day suspension.

Principal Christine Barela wrote in a letter to parents that the district wanted to make it “crystal clear that those actions are unacceptable.”

Just a classic senior prank right here. Stealing the principal’s car and parking it on the roof. Letting a bunch of livestock loose in the building during class. Wearing NI**ER shirts and posing for yearbook pictures. Pranks that kids have been doing since the first year school was invented, pranks as old as time. Kids will be kids.

At least the internet handled it well?

Some are now asking the school for a harsher punishment for the girls.

A Change.org petition calling for the girls’ expulsion gained more than 10,000 signatures by Saturday afternoon.

“Arizona has been stricken with another blatant expression of racism and ignorance,” the petition says.

The petition notes that “the punishment does not fit the total ignorance and cruelty of the crime” and demands the principal’s resignation.

“These expressions of racism will not be tolerated any longer,” it concludes.

Not sure a stupid joke warrants everyone involved having their life ruined, but internet mobs gonna internet mob.

Plus it’s not like the girls had these shirts printed up themselves and wore them with the purpose of dropping fire racist pictures all over Twitter. The school gave them out. They just saw the coincidence and capitalized.

Have to be absolutely braindead to take that pic in 2016 when a thing called “the internet” exists, but as for calling these girls stone cold racists and demanding their expulsion – kind of a stretch.
