Racist Song Played before City, Suburban Virginia Game

Tuesday, 20 Oct 2015 07:39 AM

The principal of a suburban Richmond high school has apologized to his counterpart at a predominantly black city school for a song with racist lyrics that was played before a Friday night football game.

Henrico County school officials told the Richmond Times-Dispatch (http://bit.ly/1RTCKxq) they have identified the student they suspect is responsible and the student will be disciplined.

The song was played over the public address system during warmups by players from the county's Glen Allen High School and Richmond's John Marshall High School. The parody song is based on the 1980s Disney animated TV show "DuckTales." The pre-game version included offense depictions of African-Americans and racial slurs.

Glen Allen school administrators said songs are typically reviewed before they are played, but this wasn't.

The game was played without incident.
