Black Student Sues Minnesota High School Over Annual "Wigger Day"


Black Student Sues White School Over Racist “Wigger Day”

What is a Wigger?

“Wigger is a pejorative slang term for a white person who emulates the mannerisms, language and fashions associated with African-American culture,” according to the complaint made by Quera Pruitt, a black student who attends the predominantly Caucasian Red Wing High School that celebrates “Wigger Day.”

The High School, including the principal apparently decided to ignore the day, which in Quera’s book is just as good as acknowledging it.

Here’s some of the report from the court house:

“The students who participated in Wigger or Wangsta day wore clothes that, from their perspective, mimicked Black culture. These costumes included oversized sports jerseys, low-slung pants, baseball hats cocked to the side and ‘doo rags’ on their heads. Some of the students displayed gang signs.

“Principal Borgen was aware that the Wednesday of Homecoming Week had historically been referred to among the students as ‘Wednesday Wigger Day.’

“Indeed, September 30, 2009, was not the first time the students at Red Wing High School held Wigger or Wangsta Day. School officials acknowledge that ‘Wednesday Wigger Day’ had occurred in at least the ‘last couple of years’ prior to September 30, 2009.”

For some reason, we still get shocked by racism or stereotypes when we know that they exist. I’m not sure what damages Ms. Pruitt can claim she’s experienced, but I’m following suit and filing against Wigger rappers if it works out for her.

    Joe Snow,
    You being black does not make your racist tirade any less offensive. Black Americans are not to blame for the current legacy of discrimination and disadvantage. You want the communities to advance themselves, but in the same breath you make the ridiculously false, discouraging statement that blacks “invest 0% into their own communities.”
    Come on, Joe. Quit your keyboard warrior whining and use your passion to make a positive difference in your world. Black America is not dead, Quera Pruitt proves that with his brave stance. There’s still plenty of hope. 🙂

    How could anyone who is of African American descent say such an ignorant thing? You’ve got to be trolling buddy. As for this suit, it makes me feel proud that Dr. King’s dream of equality is being being recognized in this new generation, you know, the one everyone deemed, ‘lost’. This proves that we know who we are, just as the generations before us knew who they were in the sixties and we know we don’t have to tolerate racism and discrimination in our schools or any public place for that matter. If those students didn’t know they were being offensive before, they’re certainly going to know now. You go girl! An don’t let anyone deter you from getting you justice!
