School officials investigating video of kids chanting racist song in Md.

Many were outraged about the video, but the chant may not have been what everyone thought.

ROCKVILLE, MD. (WUSA9) - A Montgomery County parent is outraged after his daughter recorded a video of fellow middle schoolers chanting a racist song on the bus.

The video, posted by Brandon Long on Facebook Tuesday, shows students on a school bus from Robert Frost Middle School in Rockville breaking out into a chant that uses the n-word.

He posted (warning the original post has graphic language):

So our daughter had to experience racism today on her school bus from Robert Frost Middle School in Montgomery County MD. They are singing 1,2,3,4 how many n***** are in my store. I am outraged and I refuse to let this slide. Please help me make this viral. Repost everywhere!

Long also mentions on his Facebook page that she's reached out to the school and said, 'they were nervous and wanted to handle it'.

School spokesman Derek Turner told WUSA9's Bruce Leshan that the school is investigating the incident and that the principal will send out a note to the school community soon.

Turner says this type of behavior is "unacceptable."

Others who commented on the post said they were outraged about the video and that it's sad to see children using this language.

A Google search for the lyrics, shows the chant possibly originates from a viral clip that is making the rounds online.

Long's video has been shared more than 16,000 times.
