CHANDLER , Ariz. - A video surfaced on social media this week showing eighth-grade students yelling a three-word racial slur at a house party.
The school district sent a statement condemning the San Tan Junior High students for reciting what they say is a rap song, but a parent is arguing it is not just a rap song-- but a white-supremacist chant.
The video began circulating at San Tan Junior High this week. The Chandler Unified School District's statement says the "video involving students and a rap song by Rah Digga and Young Zee that has a title and lyrics that are highly offensive."
The song the school district is referencing is titled "F**k ya'll Ni**az," which utters the phrase many times throughout the song. A closer listen to the social media post, however, offers some ambiguity about whether or not that is the song these teenagers are singing.
"I'm pissed off," said Geoffrey Mobisson who has a daughter at San Tan Junior High. Mobission said he wants to see these students be held accountable.
Mobisson believes the song in the social media post doesn't sound like the one San Tan Junior High is telling parents.
"That's not the song, it took me 10 seconds with Google and YouTube to find out this is the song," Mobisson said referencing a YouTube video by a well-known white supremacist, who has made a name for himself for his song called "F**k all Ni**erz."
12 News sent a link of that video, along with the question of why they believe students were reciting the original song, to district officials.
School district initially responded saying the situation was "under review," but Wednesday the school issued a statement saying the students' actions didn't fall under its purview.
