Reports are coming out of Coronado High School that several white students were caught taunting minority students with the rallying cry of “White Power” on school bus. According to parents who have reported the incidents, several students reported to their parents that they were the victims of a hate crime where some white students specifically targeted them because they were Jewish and or another minority.
One student wrote that the Chinese driver of the school bus was visibly scared of the students who went on for several minutes with this hate crime.
We have started a thread on Facebook (feel free to follow) with parents and reporters to make sure the school appropriately follows up with this, and more importantly makes it clear this is unacceptable. No student, regardless of race, religion or creed should have to deal with hate crimes in our public schools.
