A Fairfield Warde High School student posted a racist comment on social media against a fellow black student. The post read, "why is this N*##*% in my class? why is he not in chains?" The student's mother reported this incident to the school's principal and administration, but the school treated this incident lightly. The offending student was only given a 1-week suspension.

Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) shouldn't have to encounter this type of racist harassment from other students in a predominantly white institution. Fairfield Warde High School should take racism seriously, and the student who posted the racist comment should be expelled immediately.

What happened in Fairfield Warde High School illustrates why public schools should incorporate education in diversity and interpersonal relations in their curriculum to avoid further racist incidents.

Please sign this petition to tell Fairfield Warde High School to expel the racist bully.
