Wow. This is completely offensive and uncalled for. At York Tech High School in Pennsylvania, some male students began the first day of school after the presidential election by carrying a Donald Trump sign and calling out ‘white power’ while storming the hallways. Watch the shocking footage here and prepare to be appalled.
Unnamed students took to the halls of York Tech High School on Nov. 9, after finding out Donald Trump, 70, won the U.S. presidential election, and put on a horrifying display, according to the Boston Globe. Marching through their school chanting “White Power,” the teens proudly paraded around a “Trump” sign to show their support for the president elect.

And while the boys have been “disciplined,” the act alone just goes to show how polarized America — including our youth — truly is. And honestly, it’s quite frightening! Renie Mezzanotte, a spokeswoman for York County School of Technology in York, Pa., confirmed to the publication that the now-viral video showing the students is in fact real.
Administrators immediately “squelched” the incident and disciplined the students, according to Renie. As for the students who witnessed this hateful act, they were sent to their classes right away. Apparently no other incidents have taken place since then, but the school resource officer is now involved.
Four students have been disciplined so far, and “others are in process,” the spokeswoman wrote on Nov. 11 in response to a follow-up query from the newspaper. A phone call also went out to the parents of the school’s 1,680 students. The call let them know that the administration is dealing with the situation and that the school IS safe.
Currently, security measures remain the same at the school, which include locked doors and requiring visitors to check in, according to the spokeswoman. And this act is far from alone. In fact, Trump’s election has caused many Americans to believe that racism will become more widespread and visible all over the country.
Tell us, HollywoodLifers — are you completely disgusted by this video?
