TRENTON, NJ - Assembly Democrats Cleopatra Tucker and Ralph Caputo issued a formal statement Friday regarding the racist video made by Nutley High School Students during the New Year holiday.
“Bigotry and racism is never acceptable under any circumstances anywhere, including on social media. It’s far too easy for youth to abuse technology and post derogatory content, particularly when there is no parental supervision. Parents have a responsibility to teach right and wrong. By speaking out against hate, we can all teach our children the importance of tolerance, acceptance and respect.”
Their statements echo the sentiments expressed by the Nutley Board of Commissioners, Superintendent of Nutley Public Schools, and Nutley Police Department.
