Video emerges showing students singing racially charged song; Elite Brentwood school launches investigation
(KTLA) An elite Westside private school said Tuesday that it is investigating a video showing students singing the lyrics of a rap song containing profanity and offensive language about women and African Americans.
The video emerged on YouTube this week as part of a campaign on change.org demanding that the Brentwood School deal with the video and what organizers said are other racial issues on campus. It's unclear when the video was recorded.

The change.org petition criticized the school for not doing more.
