Mason City school district calls for unity after students unleash racist social media video

MASON CITY – The Mason City school district called for unity after students unleashed a racist social media video that made the rounds, enraging viewers.

The Mason City Community School District learned Wednesday of a social media post having racial implications which was made outside of the school environment by two students enrolled in Mason City Community School District.

According to a statement, the school district said, “Our highest priority is to ensure the ongoing safety of students and staff at Mason City Schools and to be responsive to and supportive of all of our students’ needs. We encourage parents to talk with your children about their use of social media and the implications it can have on their family, friends, classmates and their community. We are working with the Mason City Police Department in this matter and we ask for everyone’s help in building positive relationships to help our community move forward together.”

NIT was alerted to the social media post earlier Wednesday. It involved two young ladies discussing the use of the “N” word. There was a local uproar and viral effect once the video began being shared locally.  One of the youngsters is a child of a police officer.  The name of the officer will not be reported here.  NIT will not be sharing the video, as it deals with children and a word that should never be used.

The Mason City police department’s response to the matter can be read here.
