Chicago High Schoolers Hold Sit-In After Teacher Told Student 'Go Back to Your Country'

Chicago High Schoolers Hold Sit-In After Teacher Told Student 'Go Back to Your Country'

I simply feel like it should be a standard policy that racists shouldn’t be teachers. If you’re going to be an asshole at least have the decency to not be one toward children. Granted, racists don’t know what decency is. Otherwise, they probably wouldn’t be racists.

According to NBC News, students at Senn High School in Chicago staged a sit-in on Wednesday to protest a teacher’s racist remark....

A Maryland High School Had A Nazi Flag Hanging In A Classroom Window

A Maryland High School Had A Nazi Flag Hanging In A Classroom Window

Bruh, I swear racism in schools has just become my beat or something. It ain’t even been a whole ass week until another school fixed its face and did something racist. Tonight, it’s Nazis. More specifically, their flag.

According to NBC News, over the weekend a Nazi flag was seen hanging in a classroom window at Governor Thomas Johnson High School in Frederick, Maryland. The flag was fully...

High School Student Expelled for Smelling Like Weed Despite 2 Negative Test Results

High School Student Expelled for Smelling Like Weed Despite 2 Negative Test Results

A black student was suspended and later expelled from an Ohio high school — not for possessing or using marijuana—but after multiple school employees agreed that he smelled like the substance. While the student’s parent has questioned the legal or ethical basis for the suspension, one moderately experienced writer whose name rhymes with “Michael Harriot” posited a far more interesting...

Black Athlete at West Virginia High School Finds Picture of Himself in a Noose Before Game

Black Athlete at West Virginia High School Finds Picture of Himself in a Noose Before Game

I’m often skeptical when I hear people say shit like, “We just need to let the old people die out, then racism will be a thing of the past.” Mainly because those racists have kids. Kids who often turn around and do things like this.

NBC News reports that Jace Colucci, a 17-year-old student and basketball player for Westside High School in Clear Fork, W. Va., found a drawing of a stick figure...

NBC News reports that the parents of four black students at Longwood High School in Long Island are planning to sue the school district for $12 million. They filed a notice of claim after a teacher displayed a slideshow comparing their children to monkeys. The slideshow had one image of a...

Sasha Obama Steps Out for Prom, Looking as Graceful as Only Michelle’s Daughters Can

They grow up so fast.

Sasha, rumored to be off to the University of Michigan after next month’s graduation, popped up in a few pre-prom photos this weekend. Standing beside her date, Chris...

Black excellence can never be denied.

As such, St. Thomas High School senior Kellin McGowan just became the first black valedictorian in the school’s 119-year history.

His otherworldly 4.57 GPA beat out his peers, who principal Aaron Dominguez takes pride in for the nurturing environment the students have fostered.

Trans Bathroom Panic: HS Girl Expelled for Kicking a Boy in the Groin After He and Others Crash Girls Room in Transgender Protest

Trans Bathroom Panic: HS Girl Expelled for Kicking a Boy in the Groin After He and Others Crash Girls Room in Transgender Protest

A group of high school boys in the town of North Pole, Ala., (yes, you read that correctly), apparently took offense to a transgender student’s use of their bathroom and decided to protest by crashing the girl’s room.

That boneheaded oh-so-thoughtful decision got one of the boys kicked in the groin by a girl who was using the facilities at the time.

Now, the girl has been expelled for using...

Thanks to Her High School Alma Mater, We Now Have an Athletic Complex Named After Michelle Obama

Thanks to Her High School Alma Mater, We Now Have an Athletic Complex Named After Michelle Obama

On the heels of a New York Times best-selling book , coupled with a promotional tour that somehow sold out stadium after stadium throughout Trump’s America, Michelle Obama is returning to her roots of sorts—or at least her namesake. Because on Thursday came the announcement that her high school alma mater—Whitney M. Young Magnet High School—will be naming it’s new athletic center after her.

15-Year-Old Mahailya Reeves Pleases Our Ancestors by Bench Pressing 355 Pounds in Viral Video

15-Year-Old Mahailya Reeves Pleases Our Ancestors by Bench Pressing 355 Pounds in Viral Video

I don’t know what the hell weightlifting wunderkind Mahailya Reeves eats for breakfast, but I would hope to God its not somebody’s children. Because if you think pre-calculus is hard, a 15-year-old teenager shouldn’t be able to do this:

This absurd display of brute strength occurred at a regional competition on Friday, in which the Union County High School freshman heeded Jay-Z’s advice and...

As If Christmas Carols Aren't Insidious Enough, High Schoolers Turned 'Jingle Bells' into the KKK's Official Theme Song

As If Christmas Carols Aren't Insidious Enough, High Schoolers Turned 'Jingle Bells' into the KKK's Official Theme Song

Much like Trump’s toupee glue, being a teacher is a thankless job.

There’s low pay, long hours, and a tremendous amount of responsibility to mold the minds of our next generation. But even outside of being an educator, they’re disciplinarians, role models, mentors, and invaluable pillars of our society who have a profound ability to nurture and connect with our youth.

So how in the hell did...

I Had Two Black Teachers From Kindergarten Through 12th Grade and Even That Little Bit Made a Difference

I Had Two Black Teachers From Kindergarten Through 12th Grade and Even That Little Bit Made a Difference

As a parent, the education of my children is a huge part of my life. I’m not only concerned by what that education looks like; I am equally concerned about who is providing it. I have two children in school—age 9 (4th grade) and 3 (Pre-Kindergarten)—at two entirely different schools in two entirely different places. Because of where their schools are located, as well as the types of schools,...

This Is the Police Interaction Video Texas Students Must Watch to Graduate High School

This Is the Police Interaction Video Texas Students Must Watch to Graduate High School

The course, which also aims to reduce tragic interactions between the police and citizens, is part of a new state law that requires Texas high school students to receive the...

Dear Black Male Nerds: Maybe There’s Another Reason the Popular Black Girls in High School Rejected You

Dear Black Male Nerds: Maybe There’s Another Reason the Popular Black Girls in High School Rejected You

By now you have watched and likely discussed Childish Gambino (aka Donald Glover) and his new video, “This Is America.” Whether you love it or hate it, it’s forcing a discussion about the state of black America and making many (white) people uncomfortable in the process. To be sure, I find the dancing more amusing and powerful than the contents of the video itself. I’m a tough critic, I...

If You’re Still Mad That People Didn’t Want You in High School, I Get It, but Please (for Your Own Sake) Get Over It

If You’re Still Mad That People Didn’t Want You in High School, I Get It, but Please (for Your Own Sake) Get Over It

If you happened to be a teenager in 1996, and if you were a teenager who also happened to be black, there is a moderate to strong likelihood that you have a soft spot in your heart for the Ghost Town DJs. If this describes you and you heard Virgo Williams’ 18-word-long a cappella soothe through the speakers while you were out somewhere last weekend (“Boy you should know that/I got you on my...

Arming Teachers Is Probably One of the Worst Policy Suggestions of All Time

Arming Teachers Is Probably One of the Worst Policy Suggestions of All Time

When I was in ninth grade, I had a classmate named Chris. Chris was your typical badass: a little older than the rest of us, a little less interested in shit than the rest of us, basically coming to school because what the fuck else did he have to do while the rest of us were being educated? Chris was one of those students that teachers found impossible, and one teacher in particular—we’ll...
