California High School Student in Racist Video: ‘When the Police Were Killing All Those Black People, I Was So Happy’


Somebody gon’ learn a big lesson real soon. A high school student from Elk Grove, Calif., has stepped in a heaping mound of dog shit after a racist video she recorded went viral on social media.


The girl, who probably thought she was cute, filmed herself on Snapchat making several horrible remarks. The video has been viewed more than 3 million times on Twitter since it was first posted over the weekend.

“Black people are trash; they need to die,” she can be heard saying in the video. As the girl speaks, she pans the camera to her friend, who appears to go wide-eyed in shock before giggling at the remarks.

Apparently enjoying her friend’s reaction, the girl continues.

“When the police were killing all those black people, I was so happy because I was like, ‘Fuck black people; go die, bitches,’” she adds, smiling.

Of course, Little Miss I-Think-Racism-Is-Cool probably didn’t count on the Twitter detectives showing up, because both she and the school she attends were quickly identified.


Now, according to CBS 13 Sacramento, the entire community is demanding an apology from the Pleasant Grove High student.

“If it was a joke, it wasn’t a funny joke at all,” Camryn Tomlin, who just graduated from the high school, told the news station.


“It’s not right; I think she should be suspended, if not even more,” Tomlin’s cousin Breann Bray, also a recent graduate, added.

The Elk Grove Unified School District sent CBS 13 a statement saying that the school was investigating the incident, as well as speaking to the families of the students in the video.

The local rag published a link to her name: Desirae Fernandez Pleasant Grove High School Elk Grove 916-686-0230 (school number, not hers).

Fernandez. Fernandez.

Turns out... a friend’s...sister’s... ex husband (stay with me).. is shacking up with little Desirae’s mother. Said sister of friend was out on a family wine tour and got a call from her ex hubby to please come get their two boys who were with him because shit is about to get crazy. This is the crazy he was talking about.

They have locked down their home, turned off their phones, and gone into hiding from all the local news folk peeping their home. The school is in Elk Grove, south of Sacramento, but they live in Rancho Cordova, a bit East of Sac.

And they’ve gotten visits from her school mates looking to “talk” with Desirae. Good times.

Don’t let 14 year olds have unsupervised online access, I guess? Idk.. but school returns in a week and word is she ain’t going back to that school.
