Controversial film shown at VA high school slammed as 'White guilt' video

"Dr. King gave his life so that America would be a place where we are judged by the content of our character not the color of our skin," said radio personality Craig Johnson. "Now we have poverty pimps being led by our current president Barack Obama who all they talk about is the color of skin."


School leaders apologized on Wednesday for a controversial video slammed by parents in Henrico.

Henrico, Va. Feb. 10, 2016 – Today Henrico County Public Schools is issuing additional public response to concerns from the local community pertaining to a video played during student assemblies Feb. 4 at Glen Allen High School.

The YouTube video, titled "Structural Discrimination: The Unequal Opportunity Race," was shown to students at a Glen Allen High School Black History month program, but left some parents outraged.

Now, Henrico School Board Chairman Micky Ogburn is apologizing and says the county is revisiting the diversity efforts.

“We are making every effort to respond to our community. It is our goal to prevent the recurrence of this type of event. School leaders have been instructed not to use the video in our schools," said Ogburn. "In addition, steps are being taken to prevent the use of racially divisive materials in the future. We do apologize to those who were offended and for the unintended impact on our community.”
