Students at Cristo Rey Atlanta Jesuit High School are being suspended after an alarming video was released.

ATLANTA (CBS46) — An alarming video shared with CBS46 by a concerned mother, showed a group of Cristo Rey Atlanta Jesuit High School students pretending to “lynch” a black student in one of the school’s bathrooms.

In the video, several male students can be seen with their heads covered in white tissue, with holes around the eyes. Then you see a black student with tissue wrapped around his neck and tie to a bathroom stall, like a rope. Play Video

The concerned parent said the video was taken by another student who walked in on the incident and shared the video with his parents. Since then, the video has been circulating through the hands of Cristo Rey parents and around social media. 

According to staff, the school is 56% Latino, 40% African American, 2% Asian and 2% Caucasian.

“Very shocking and disheartening to know that somebody I sit next to in class, somebody I present my project to, who I talk to on a daily basis at lunch could you feel this way towards me,” said student Kenidee Barkley.

Students told CBS46 Faculty held an assembly Thursday to discuss the issue and later held a meeting with parents.

“I do know the school seems to be taking it very very seriously,” said one parent.

However, many students said they’re worried conversations aren’t enough to prevent the discrimination they face daily.

“I think that the racial discrimination that plays a part in this world definitely ,made its way into Cristo Rey you see that in the video and we see that walking up and down the stairs every day,” said student William Bradley.
