Video of a Maryland teen ranting about the Black Lives Matter movement with racially charged statements went viral in late January, prompting a response from the boy’s school district.

Howard County, Maryland, superintendent Renee Foose called video of a local student “disturbing” and said in a letter to parents that his comments were a “teachable moment.”

“I mean, seriously, who the f--- cares about some black man who dies,” the teen says in the video, referring to the Black Lives Matter movement. 

A student offscreen subsequently asks the teen to repeat his remarks.

“They’re an inferior race, OK?” he responds. “Does anybody really care? Like look at this motherf-----!” He then holds up a $5 bill displaying the face of Abraham Lincoln. 

“This guy is a traitor to the white race! Alright?”

The video quickly went viral, soon catching the attention of school officials. The teen later posted a message to social media apologizing for the rant.

“I am learning from this mistake and hope to gain forgiveness from those who I hurt with my words,” he said.
