WI High School Called Police on a Student For Reacting to Racial Slurs
In September 2018 a Wisconsin high school called police on a black student who stood up for herself after experiencing unaddressed racism. The principal reportedly told the student that video surveillance showed that her body language appeared to be threatening. The student’s mother reports that other black students have experienced racism, which has been confirmed by other students' witness accounts, and that it has been unaddressed by the school. This is an example of institutionalized racism.
