Racism sparks fight?

Accusations of racism are emerging after an online posting showing teens fighting in Duncan.

The fight took place Monday at the James Street Campus of Cowichan Secondary School, according to a joint statement from Cowichan Tribes Chief William Seymour and Cowichan Valley School District Superintendent Rod Allen.
 
A video circulating on social media of teens brawling at a Duncan high school has sparked accusations online that racism may have led to the fight.

A video of the fight posted to Facebook Monday had already been viewed more than 26,000 times by early Tuesday afternoon.

Mounties attended the high school on Tuesday to follow up with staff and students. The school said it's also reviewing video of the fight and other evidence to determine what led up to the incident.

There are accusations online that racism led to the lunch-time brawls but officials are not confirming that.
