Derogatory Sign Containing Drake Lyrics Posted On High School As ‘Senior Prank’ [VIDEO]

Atlanta News, Weather, Traffic, and Sports | FOX 5

South Forsyth High officials were none too happy when they discovered a sign draped across the school containing derogatory lyrics from a popular song by artist Drake.

The sign boldly proclaimed “N—- We Made It!“—a hook from the popular rap song, ‘We Made It’ by Soulja Boy and Drake—and was intended to be a “senior prank,” but school officials were the least bit amused.

Lets face facts and be completely honest here. Do high school kids listen to music, watch movies, and consume content on the internet that contains derogatory terms and could be considered graphic? Of course they do—and anyone who doesn’t believe that is living under a rock.

With all that said, does it still make it OK for them to plaster the N-word in bold letters all over the school? I mean seriously, I understand using pop culture to commemorate your years of hard work that have prepared you to embark on this journey into adulthood, but of all of the possibilities, THIS is what you chose to drape across your campus?

Even if they were just limited to Drake lyrics there are far better choices that would have had the same impact without the negative backlash. Seriously, was “Started From The Bottom, Now We’re Here” already taken by another high school or something?

What made it worse was that other photos also showed the phrase written on several vehicle windows, and as the images began circulating on social media, the school released this statement.

South Forsyth High School Parents: This morning, without our knowledge, students placed a derogatory sign with a verse from a song by Drake on our school as a senior prank. We removed it as soon as it was brought to our attention and deeply apologize for their behavior. This is unacceptable and I promise you that the students will receive the appropriate consequences for their actions.

This isn’t the only time that particular lyric was used to recognize the accomplishments of a 2014 graduating class.

Another prank at Fayette County High School saw two students spelling out the exact same phrase using letters on the school sign. Even though they immediately took the sign down, they still received disciplinary action.

The principal claims to have video surveillance of what he calls a “diverse group of students” setting up the sign at Forsyth High School, and has yet to implement any disciplinary action as of now.

It would be sad to see such a foolish prank become the reason these kids don’t “make it.”
