The video, which has tens of thousands of views at this point, sparked outrage at the school and ultimately led fellow students to stage a walkout on Tuesday to send a message to administrators.
“We’re not going to stand for racism. We’re not going to stand for discrimination,” said Robert Jett, student.READ MORE: 28-Year-Old Killed & 18-Year-Old Wounded In Pair Of Baltimore Shootings
“I want them to change their policies so our students can be heard and so that racism won’t be accepted,” said Sarah Chernikoff, student.
Tuesday night, a town hall meeting was held at an area church to start a conversation about diversity.
