A San Francisco private school has been riven by tumult after a student released an amateur song with racist and threatening lyrics. 

The song, which includes the line "I'm a racist," also made reference to carrying guns and used slurs against students with minority backgrounds at Sacred Heart Preparatory School.

The school held a meeting for parents and teachers last week. Many expressed anger at the way the institution has handled the incident. The media was not allowed to attend. 

Vanessa Bailey, whose daughter is a senior at the school, said Sacred Heart and the police have not done enough. 

“If this was an African American boy who had made threats, terrorist threats, to these children, he would have been in jail already,” said Bailey. 

The boy who made the song is of Asian descent, students said. 

Parents said the boy has been expelled, but there was no official confirmation from Sacred Heart. 

One student said he'd been friends with the boy until the shocking release of the song. 

“After, like this whole situation, I started talking to other people, and he just - it became a way darker light on him,” he said. “Which kinda sucked, cause, I really thought he was a really nice dude but, sadly he’s a racist.”

San Francisco Police Department officers searched the boy’s home, and said there wasn’t anything suspicious. 

Following the release of the song on social media, the boy apparently made in-person threats to minority students earlier in January.

“I don’t feel safe as a black, female student at this school,” said sophomore Kayla Nobriga-Allen. “I listen to my parents talk about, all night, like if we should even send her to school. I mean they’re paying for me to get an education here.”

Kori McCoy, a senior at Sacred Heart, said the school doesn’t have a lot of black students, which had already made some feel vulnerable. 

“We have 30 to be exact,” said McCoy. “It’s like, we know he’s targeting us, and then it puts every other kid at risk, other race kids, because bullets don’t got a name on it.”
