Crude cheerleader video is latest racially charged incident to hound St. John Fisher College

St. John Fisher College's holiday break was just hours old when two of its students were caught trying to steal a statue of revered abolitionist Frederick Douglass.

A witness said the two white students spouted racial epithets as they stumbled drunkenly down Alexander Street before being arrested by Rochester police.

Then, just three days before the end of the college's break, an 11-second video surfaced that featured white Fisher cheerleaders singing along with a popular rap song by Meek Mill. The portion of the song shouted out in the video included three uses of the n-word and a crude term for the female anatomy.
