High School Reenacts Chris Brown Beating Rihanna At A Pep Rally

At the most resent Pep Rally for Waverly High School, located in Waverly NY, the usual fanfare of cheering for the home team to get them ready was in full swing. As the rally progressed you had your usual cheers and rally cries for the fall sports teams and the football team. It seemed to have done well, with Waverly defeating their opponent 70-21. But what happened at that pep rally went much farther than simple cheers.

Three white students were to perform a skit in black face, depicting Chris Brown and Rhianna most notably. In this skit they would display acts of domestic violence as satire to an audience that included not only students but parents, faculty, and various members of the media and community leaders. None of them stopped the skit. Now former students of Waverly High School are questioning how this was allowed to happen.



"I think it's unconscionable that such blatant racism has been tacitly approved two years in a row," says Waverly alumni and Yale graduate Vlad Chituc. "The administration should be creating an environment where minorities are welcome, not the butts of racist jokes that make light of domestic violence."

Fellow former Waverly student Hannah Van Wie-Desisti shared sentiments with her former schoolmate: "I used to be so proud of where I came from. Not so much now due to the recent incident. I found it unfathomable that the faculty would not only approve this idea for the skit in the first place, but allow it to go on during the pep rally. I honestly don't believe that the students meant to offend, but were just ill informed of how offending their skit actually was. The staff should have stopped it before it even started. By acting like the skit was acceptable, they are teaching their students that racism is okay and that abuse is humorous. The whole thing outraged me and made me so disappointed in the school that I was once loved."

The offensive nature of what took place is made even more concerning know that in order for a skit to take place at the rally it had to be OK'ed by the administration of the school.

A comment from the school district was not available at this time.
