A high school is being investigated by a school district in Nevada, after the video showed a student dragging a black mannequin across the floor during a homecoming parade for football matches.
The incident took place on Friday evening in Reno between Damonte Ranch High School and McQueen High School around 9:30 PM.
Shared in a video by KRNV, a Damonte Ranch High School student can be seen dressed as a cowboy riding a mustang, the school's mascot, using a lasso to drag a black mannequin dressed like a lancer down the waist.

That same night, Dr Kristen McNeill, Chief Inspector of Washoe County School District, became aware of the incident and immediately asked for an investigation.
In a pronunciation, McNeill said: & This incident and the behavior of those responsible is completely inconsistent with our collective commitment to equality, diversity, responsibility and kindness for all our students and staff. & # 39;
& # 39; The district is continuing to investigate how this most unfortunate incident occurred and will take appropriate measures to ensure that it never happens again. & # 39;
& # 39; We will hold those responsible responsible for their actions. In fact, in addition to apologies, this can result in a doubling at school level of civil rights, justice and diversity training efforts. & # 39;

According to the incident report from Reno Gazette Journal, students chose to build a homecoming float around a rodeo theme.
Class advisers approved students who would blow up a & # 39; blowing up cowboy / horse & # 39; and bought a lasso to engage a student dressed as a lancer – the McQueen mascot – for the float.
It was later decided that students would buy an inflated manikin instead of using a student.
Students tried to buy a gray manikin on Amazon, but bought a black one when that was the only available color.

Students were unable to leave the mannequin on the float once, which led to a lasso dragging the mannequin around the waist.
& # 39; On behalf of our staff and students at Damonte Ranch, we are extremely apologetic and it was absolutely not our intention to ever offend anyone, but rather to demonstrate a traditional, friendly rivalry & # 39 ;, said officials of the Damonte Ranch High School in the report.
& # 39; We fully understand how this was perceived and how it could be offensive to anyone who attended the competition. & # 39;
& # 39; We would never deliberately attempt to offend a culture because we represent different cultures in our Damonte Ranch High School and community. & # 39;
& # 39; Again, we are very sorry and we will take action and take the necessary steps to ensure that this never repeats at the Damonte Ranch High School. & # 39;
The research is still being assessed.
