Georgia Marching Band Displays Racial Slur During Performance

High School Band in Georgia Spells Out Racial Slur During Halftime Performance

In an email, Brookwood High School principal William Bo Ford Jr. said they have identified the four band members, as well as two others who did not plan the prank but provided false information to administrators. Instead, on Friday, the high schoolers spelled out a four-letter racist slur against Black people.

Myers says she was appalled to see members of the band spell out a racial slur with their instruments. "However, they acknowledged that they knew this racist term was not acceptable". "As you all know, this is not who we are".

As he addressed students, teachers and the entire school community, he apologized for the "completely unacceptable, racial term" and guaranteed the students involved would face "disciplinary action". He's also said that the students would be disciplined for their "hurtful, disrespectful and disappointing" actions.

"Our band does not wear these covers on the field because they shield the sound and because during the halftime show our band members move around the field and do not stand in the same order as they do in the stands", Ford continued to explain. The large horn section has instrument covers that are used to spell out the school's team and mascot known as the Broncos.

According to the Gwinnett Daily Post, members use them in the stands but take them off on the field.

He said the activity on the field was "very busy" and that "several personnel challenges" during the senior night activities resulted in the band's director not being on the field during the performance.

"You're bold enough on senior night, that means your parents your grandparents are there...you're bold enough to spell those words and stay there long enough to have everyone take pictures?"

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.
