Kyle Kashuv apologizes for n-word comments in old text messages

Kyle Kashuv, a survivor of the school admissions in Parkland, Florida who emerged as an arms activist, apologized a few years ago because he & # 39; honorable comments & # 39; made.

Kashuv published the apology on Twitter on Wednesday night after the screenshots of anti-black racist lies apparently written by him began to circulate online classmates at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School.

On May 16, a fellow student posted a screenshot on Twitter stating that it is showing a Google class lesson written in December 2017, two months prior to the shooting that left 17 dead at the school.

According to the student, Kashuv repeatedly wrote & # 39; N ***** & # 39; in capital letters, followed by: & # 39; if i'm really good at typing n ***** ok like practice, ehhhhhh makes perfect. & # 39;

The offensive remarks from Kashuv, marked in gray, apparently appeared in this mid-term study guide that classmates used in December 2017 for a US history exam for advanced placement.

The shared Google document was an interim study guide that classmates used for a US history exam for Advanced Placement.

In the same document, Kashuv apparently said that he & # 39; f ** king would have a CSOG card made and practiced by Douglas. & # 39; The acronym is supposed to refer to the shooting game & # 39; Counter-Strike: Global Offensive & # 39 ;.

In a separate exchange of text messages shared by the female student, Kashuv identifies a fellow student who says they & # 39; n ***** jocks & # 39; is a clear reference to black student sportsmen.

A follow-up message reads: & # 39; pasty jew <n ***** & # 39 ;. Kashuv is himself Jewish.

On the same day that the comments were posted online, Kashuv announced that he was resigning as high school director for Turning Point USA, a nationally conservative student organization.

Another Parkland student who had access to the racist remarks told it Huffington Post that she had threatened Kashuv with exposure shortly before he came from Turning Point.

Kashuv, currently 18 and a senior at Stoneman Douglas, said in a statement on May 16 that he left Turning Point to focus on & # 39; school safety legislation & # 39; before he would start in Harvard in 2020.

Kashuv's apology on Wednesday came when the Huffington Post and Daily Beast prepared to publish articles about the offensive reports.

& # 39; I was recently informed of the screen's circulation, including offensive comments from former classmates, and I made a few years ago, long before the recordings, & # 39; he wrote.

& # 39; We were 16-year-olds who made ridiculous remarks, using calluses and inflammatory language in an attempt to be as extreme and shocking as possible. I am embarrassed, but I want to be clear that the comments I have made are not indicative of who I am or who I became in the years that followed, & he said.

& # 39; I see the world with different eyes and am ashamed of the small, light-hearted boy shown in those screenshots, Kashuv added and swore & # 39; better move forward & # 39 ;.

Kashuv became prominent after the shooting when he spoke for the rights of the firearm, because many classmates, including David Hogg, argued for new arms management legislation.

Kashuv has focused his criticism on failing law enforcement that he thinks contributed to the shooting in Parkland instead of arms control.

He met with President Donald Trump and Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, a Republican, included Kashuv in his Transitional Advisory Committee on Public Security.

Kashuv will be among the graduating seniors at the Stoneman Douglas graduation ceremony on June 2.

The accused Parkland shooter Nikolas Cruz remains in custody and prosecutors have so far refused to offer a plea that would save him the death penalty.
