The Snapchat groups were called ‘Slave Trade,’ and other titles with racial slurs. In the chats, students from Aledo, Tex., pretended to buy and sell their Black peers, according to screenshots given to the Fort Worth Star-Telegram.

Local activists provided the Star-Telegram with screenshots of chats showing a group using racial slurs with the words ‘Farms’ and ¨Auction.¨ The group had also been named with emoji of a Black man, a gun and a White police officer.

In one chat, students wrote that they would spend $1 on a classmate and ‘100 bucks’ on another, according to the screenshots.

According to the Superintendent of Aledo School Susan Bohn, local officials learned more than two weeks ago that some students sent an email to parents that did not mention the Snapschat group, but revealed there had been ‘an incident of cyberbullying and harassment.’
