  • Charlottesville Students Demand Reform After Racist 4chan Threat

    Students at Charlottesville High School in Charlottesville, Virginia, walked out of classes on Monday, issuing a list of demands to the school district after they were targeted by a racist threat on 4chan last week. The walkout, organized by local activist and student Zyahna Bryant and the high school’s Black Student Union, was framed around pushing the school district for cultural reform and increased safety. The deadly Unite the Right rally in 2017 ― which was falsely billed as a response to Bryant’s work to remove a Robert E. Lee statue from a public park ― wasn’t the first outbreak of racist violence in Charlottesville, nor the last.

  • Norristown School Employee Fired For Alleged Racist Internet Post

    During a special meeting, The Norristown Area School Board voted to terminate an employee who posted an allegedly racist comment on the Internet. The board voted 8 to 0 for termination and one board member was not present for the meeting. On April 7th, around 100 Norristown Area High School students staged a walkout, which they said was to protest the post and that the employee had not yet been terminated. The post in question was made in response to a news story where two males were identified in the shooting of a Philadelphia police officer. The alleged post read, “And people wonder why cops draw their guns. This makes me sick. I have never been more disgusted. The black community should be ashamed of the number of criminals they are breeding. Where are the cries and screams from this shooting? So over the crappy excuses. Stand up and own your problems. And please, pull up your damn pants and TAKE OFF YOUR HOODS, it makes you look shady. God Bless the police that serve and protect us every day. May you rest in peace Officer Wilson.”
