There's nothing wrong with being excited about graduating from high school, nor is it wrong to enjoy Drake's music, particularly his take on Soulja Boy's "We Made It." However, there's a big problem with a bunch of white teens adorning their Georgia high school with signs reading "N*** we made it" and writing the same message on school windows as part of their senior prank, especially when they aren't omitting the rest of the letters in the n-bomb.
Some members of South Forsyth County High's Class of 2014 enjoyed the song too much (yes, that was a Drake reference), forgetting what they can and can't say. The incident has understandably left a bad taste in the mouths of many, prompting school officials to issue a statement on the matter:
South Forsyth High School Parents: This morning, without our knowledge, students placed a derogatory sign with a verse from a song by Drake on our school as a senior prank. We removed it as soon as it was brought to our attention and deeply apologize for their behavior. This is unacceptable and I promise you that the students will receive the appropriate consequences for their actions.
To the members of South Forsyth County High's Class of 2014, here's a reality check: You haven't made it that far. Stay in your lane and make sure the senior pranks are non-derogatory and actually funny. To the parents and everyone else, don't blame Drake. This isn't on him.
