Right, since the media can’t do it, how about we set the record straight here.
Truth is: The students being white had zilch to do with it, so you can stop narrowing it down to that right about now. I go to that school. This wasn’t a race thing, not in the least. The people who were actually concerned about that word being on the sign (myself included) were in the minority, because for the most part, absolutely no one cared. And I think it’s completely screwy the way the senior prank was narrowed down to this. Standardized tests were taking place at the same time all this occurred, something I believe is far worse than a few morons painting that word on a sign for all to see. There has been no mention of everything else they did today, either. The most controversial prank was picked out for the sake of attention.
My point is, get past it. The word wasn’t being used in a derogatory way. When it is, that’s something to make a fuss about.
Please get your facts straight, we now know, from cameras at the school, that it was not any of the white Seniors that put up the sign. This has been blow up by whoever Amir Waller(if that’s his name) is, sending to every media he could think of and also to black celebrities. What is he trying to do?? #troublemaker #wantsattention #shameonhim #bullySome of the kids involved may not graduate now, is that what he wanted? And, no they should not have put that sign up but they are kids!
I am black and i think its funny
This article has no idea what it’s talking about. This sign was made by two Latinos and an African American. Also our school is 30+% non-Caucasian which is apparent by our high achieving senior class. This was made by 3 people non represented of the diverse and highly accepting high school that is south Forsyth. Get your facts straight before you ruin our reputation as being one of the best schools in the United States (ranked 135th by Washington post)
