High School Band in Georgia Spells Out Racial Slur During Halftime Performance

In an email, Brookwood High School principal William Bo Ford Jr. said they have identified the four band members, as well as two others who did not plan the prank but provided false information to administrators. On Friday, however, some of the letters appeared rearranged and spelled out an anti-black slur. "The covers spell out BRONCOS and some of them feature our Bronco mascot".

The Associated Press said it happened during a half-time show. Once band members took to the field, jaws dropped as band members assembled themselves in such a fashion that they spelled out the slur "c**n".

Ford previously had apologized to parents and the community in a letter, saying the halftime show was "hurtful and disrespectful to audience members". "As you all know, this is not who we are". The musicians are also not in the same order on the field as they are arranged in the stands, Ford wrote. "All six of these students will receive discipline consequences commensurate with their involvement in this incident".

He also called it a "completely unacceptable, racial term" and said the school's halftime procedures now being reviewed, the AP reported.

Band members typically don't wear the covers on the field, however, because they muffle the sound from their instrument.

"With that in mind, when the sousaphone players took the field, they did not follow band rules and normal practice, and instead, they left the covers on their instruments", Ford said.

"The game, an annual 'Senior Night" event, was unusually busy and resulted in the band director not being on the field when the performance started, the principal said.

Shawn Myers, whose son plays in the Brookwood marching band, told local Atlanta news station Fox 5 that she was shocked when she took notice of the band's formation.
