Tucker and Caputo Statement on Video of Nutley Students Using Racial Slurs

In response to a video posted on social media of three Nutley High School students using racial slurs, Assembly Democrats Cleopatra Tucker and Ralph Caputo (both D-Essex) released the following joint statement:

“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.”
