Students and parents are pissed off after 8 students posted a photo of themselves topless with Nazi symbols painted on their chests on social media and are demanding that authorities of Wheatland Union High School take action against these students. The eight students allegedly posted a photo on social media of themselves topless sporting painted swastikas on their chests.
The Daily Mail says that Wheatland Union High School has launched an investigation into the matter.
‘I want to make very clear that our district seeks to educate our students in an environment of respect for each other, for our community and humankind,’ Superintendent Nicole Newman wrote in a press release, noting she cannot comment on the photograph due to the ongoing investigation.
‘The District prohibits any discrimination, harassment, intimidation or bullying of any student or staff member,’ she added.
Despite the district’s response, some parents claim their children are still upset about the incident and allege that school leaders have failed to address issues of racism in the past.
‘She did mention that nothing is being done,’ Wheatland parent Jose, whose daughter is disappointed by the handling of the situation, told ABC 10.
‘She’s tired of these same exact people getting away with things like this, so it kind of adds to the frustration.’ Although it remains unclear exactly what steps the district has taken to combat racism in the school, Newman claims leaders are ‘committed to providing a safe learning environment that promotes academic excellence and responsible citizenship’.
‘We will work together in order to ensure the success of all our students and to build an environment where all are respected and treated with dignity,’ she said.
If these students truly posted the photo then what do they seek to achieve with it. I’m sure the investigations will unravel the motive behind the posting of the photo.
