Tensions were high following a video with two white kids using racial slurs and a white hood was sent to a group of black students at Yulee High School.  According to News4Jax,  “The Nassau County School district confirmed with News4Jax that the video sparked a fight when a few students,” some on the football team, when students confronted the teen who sent the video.” Parents said they were defending themselves after being bullied and targeted because of their race.”

Response from Nassau County Assistant Superintendent Mark Durham

“The district was made aware of a video that was recorded this summer but just recently sent on Snap Chat to several Yulee High School students. The video contained racial slurs and images. It resulted in a physical altercation involving several students. Disciplinary actions consistent with the district’s code of conduct have been given to students involved in the altercation and in sending the Snap Chat video.”
