Parker Mustian Racist Video
In disturbing racist videos that are circulating following the recent mass shootings, Mustian is heard saying, “Howdy, I’m Parker Mustian and I hate black people,” the teen begins in the first clip. “They’re the worst. They’re stinky and they just suck. They’re just bad people.”
Mustian proceeds to fire a weapon at what he claims are “a box of Jordans – the favorite pair of shoes for a black man.”
“I’m going to show you what I think of a black man,” Mustian says, unloading his weapon at the box of shoes.
“F**k all n***ers,” he says after firing.
A second video is even more graphic, with Mustian firing two weapons into the same shoe box.
“It seems that our n**er hasn’t quite learned his lesson yet,” Mustian said. “It seems like he needs twenty-five rounds to the dome.”
There are still other videos and text messages allegedly sent by Mustian have yet to be published but are reportedly in possession of law enforcement.
The graphic videos were posted on social media on Saturday, August 3rd by Annabelle Robertson, a former Democratic candidate for South Carolina’s second congressional district. Robertson’s daughter is friends with several students who attend Cardinal Newman, and her “peer group” was reportedly sharing the threatening clips.
“This video landed on my daughter’s phone last night,” Robertson tweeted. In posting the videos, Robertson wrote that “people MUST understand the ramifications of teaching their child – or even allowing – racism to go unchecked.” She has already deleted the tweet in question.
According to reporter Sammy Fretwell of The (Columbia, S.C.) State newspaper, the videos were filmed back in May 2019.

Parker Mustian Arrest and Expulsion from Cardinal Newman
Parker Mustian was arrested last month by officers of the Richland County sheriff’s department in connection with alleged threats made against Cardinal Newman, which expelled him on July 15th, 2019.
According to deputies, Mustian threatened to “shoot up the school’’ after he was expelled for his involvement in racist videos and text messages.
The school did not notify parents until when a newly-installed school principal Robert Loia reached out to parents on 10:00 p.m. EDT on Friday, August 2nd, 2019 – when The State was publishing its first story on the matter. It is not clear why the school took so long before addressing the issue.
