Important Message: Words & Actions

A very disturbing video has been posted on Twitter of a recent alumnus filmed while in a college class, making highly incendiary racial and homophobic statements.

While the alumnus is almost four years out of Brunswick, this episode shows us once again that words and actions matter and reflect not only on the person making the statement/inciting the actions, but also on all with whom he is associated.

That being said, Brunswick seeks to promote respect for everyone and has zero tolerance for hateful speech or behavior of any kind. We encourage our students to be contributors to a community that's inclusive and welcoming — and, after they graduate, we certainly hope those values remain a lifelong commitment.

Knowing nothing further about the circumstances of the video, we will make no further comment — other than to strongly reaffirm that Brunswick School entirely disavows any and all comments of the nature that appear to be expressed in the video.
