Racist video sends shockwaves through Leesville Middle | abc11.com: Parents learned about the video in a phone message from the principal here at Leesville Middle. But many haven't seen the video post in which the students use derogatory terms for blacks and Latinos and are heard to say "go back to the fields of Alabama, go back to the factories in Mississippi. You don't deserve freedom."

The hostility expressed in the video extended to Arab and Jewish people as well.

It doesn't appear that Leesville Road Middle School was the setting for the video. Instead it looks like it was shot inside a home.

ABC11 has blurred the students' faces, but those faces are clearly visible in the original Internet video, so school officials say they have identified the students and taken appropriate action.

The principal, Cindy Kremer, sent a phone message to parents saying the video violates student standards and that the video's message will not be condoned in the school.
