Montreal police said Tuesday they’re investigating a racist video that has been circulating widely online and features two girls believed to be local high school students. It’s unclear when the video was created, but it shows two girls in blackface, singing and dancing as they direct a stream of slurs and insults towards Black people. A spokesman for the Montreal police confirmed the force was aware of the video and had opened an investigation, but did not confirm the identities or ages of the two girls. However John Rennie High School in Pointe-Claire, a suburb west of Montreal, posted on Facebook on Monday that it was co-operating with investigators regarding a video created by two students.
