California High School Students Line Up To Spell Out Racial And Anti-Gay Slurs For Senior Class Photos

Students at Escondido Union High School in San Diego, California showed their ignorance in a big way, and are now paying the price.


The group of seniors, who are certainly old enough to know better, used lettered T-shirts to spell out hateful, racist, and homophobic slurs. KGTV reported the story after the horribly offensive photo appeared online.

Principal Adriana Lepe-Ramirez released a statement saying in part:

We are a campus that prides itself on inclusion and embraces diversity. We will not tolerate actions that send messages of racism and promote divisiveness.

Parents and guardians of the students involved are being contacted by school administrators, and appropriate disciplinary actions will be taken

We all need to understand the power of our words and actions, and we must take responsibility for the decisions we make each and every day. At Escondido High School we will continue to work every day to build a culture of family and unity across our community.

You can read the full statement below.


Twitter wasn't having one bit of it and came down much harder on the teens.

There was also some confusion on who was participating:








Regardless of who was involved, this simply had ugly painted all over it.






It is simply sad any way you look at it.
