FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
WEBSTER, N.Y. - Black rapper Lil Uzi Vert is scheduled to speak at an upcoming Families of Color meeting at Webster Schroeder High School in Webster, NY. Vert is a successful black rapper who is known (at Webster Schroeder High School) for the song, “You Was Right.”
In a viral Snapchat video, Webster Schroeder high school students were singing the song in a limo headed to junior prom. The song includes sexual language and the N-word.
As a result of this video, the district released this statement:
“Webster CSD was recently made aware of a video that was made on Saturday, June 1, during a limo ride as Webster Schroeder High School students were attending the junior prom. The video showed students singing along to a song that included racially offensive language. Webster CSD takes these matters very seriously and the building administration has been in contact with the students in the video. Parents were also contacted so that they, too, could discuss the hurtful and offensive language that was heard in the video.”
District administrators acted quickly to dispel any idea that any student at the school district would ever sing such a song again.
“Today, very productive restorative sessions took place involving Webster Schroeder's administrators, students who expressed their dismay and concern with this particular video, and students who produced the video,” the statement continued.
In a statement from Webster Central School District sent to WHEC, administration said that involved students’ parents were contacted so they “could discuss the hurtful and offensive language that was heard in the video.”
As a result of the incident, some in the community have questioned the reasoning behind inviting Mr. Vert to the district when the lyrics in his song are the reason why students were disciplined in the first place. However, school administrators assured the community that, even though there is offensive language in the song, it’s still sung by a black man.
“We want to be inclusive and equal in our treatment of people of all races, colors and beliefs,” said one administrator. “Even though we may not agree with Mr. Vert’s lyrics and lifestyle, he is still a black man and deserves our support.”
More than 50 interested community members, including parents and staff members, attended the second Families of Color meeting in early May.
“Participants also discussed a new name for the group and are hoping to finalize that name during the upcoming June meeting. During that gathering, the group began to develop a collective vision of Webster’s future as it relates to equity, diversity, and inclusion.”
“The Webster Families of Color group’s mission is to bring together a strong collective of parents, concerned family members, and allies passionate about building a racially- and economically-just community.”
For many members of the Webster district community, Mr. Vert represents an example of how a person of color can achieve a racial and economic justice, district officials said.
District officials have not revealed if the upcoming meeting will talk about “You Was Right,” however, one official suggested writing a song titled, “You was Wrong.”
Here are the lyrics to “You Was Right,” the song that will not be played at the next Families of Color meeting:
Hit it from the back watch a n**** bless you
(If Young Metro don't trust you I'm gon' shoot you)
Crying in my arms like a n**** wrecked you
(Metro Boomin' want some more, n****)
Ya alright, alright, alright
You was right I was wrong
Ya I should've never ever took her home
Ya I should've just boned
Ya fantasy on my phone
Ya hit it from the back watch a n**** bless you
Ya crying in my arms like a n**** wrecked you
Talking about a broken heart running to the restroom
Looked at my momma just like we rich
Looked at my b**** like we rich
Said we ain't got no minor setbacks
Counting all that money told that n**** just to bet that
I, I know that you ain't got it boy why you ain't just say that
They see I got that money, now his b**** like I said that
I don't pay that hoe no mind I been had that
When I saw my girl ya you know I had to bag that
And before me f*** n**** s ya they had that
Five n****s including me I had to back back
Try to diss me I take it to your family
I f*** your sister then make sure that she vanish
