High school student in Redlands seen singing in ‘racially insensitive’ video – Redlands Daily Facts

The Redlands Unified School District offered counseling to students on Wednesday, Oct. 20, after a video surfaced of a female Citrus Valley High student singing what her school described as a “racially insensitive” song.

The student was singing along with a song that disparaged Black people, said Christine Stephens, a district spokeswoman. The song, whose title Stephens said she did not know, was posted to social media, prompting students who recognized the girl as a Citrus Valley student to call the school.

Stephens declined to describe the race of the girl.

The video was brought to the district’s attention on Tuesday, and that day, the school sent out a message to parents.

“This post is racially insensitive and has caused a variety of emotions from both our students and community members. … This is a very serious situation, and we are doing what is needed to ensure proper handling of this matter. While we may not solve the hurt, anger and frustration students are experiencing, our hope is that our students see how seriously we take their concerns,” the message said.

The video was being discussed with the school’s Diversity and Equity Department, the message said.

It’s unclear whether the student could face discipline from the district. The video was filmed off-campus and after hours, Stephens said.
