We want to let you know we share your outrage and disappointment over the actions of a handful of our students today. We want to make it crystal clear those actions are unacceptable and will not be tolerated at Desert Vista. Those actions do not represent who we are as a campus. We can assure you we will discipline these students in accordance with district policy and our student handbook. While we don’t discuss individual discipline, we can tell you that in addition, the obvious need for sensitivity training will be addressed.
Three of the teens reportedly lost scholarships and all were placed on suspension.
A petition has been created to request expulsion for the teens and to fire the principal.
I'm not really going for firing the principal thing, not unless I find out this photo made the cut for the yearbook --as supposedly intended. I'm not sure that's true. But the year book is where joke senior class photos go, isn't it? If the principal failed to have the photos screened, then eat it.
However, if this was "just" something this racist idiots put up on SnapChat which moved to Twitter etc, I'm fine with expulsion Let their parents fight to get them back in so they can graduate late -- as in next year. Make em fight hard, spend big money, learn what the failure to teach themselves and their white children about their own ambient racism can cost.
As for the "children" and parents that are "die hard" Dylann Roof type overt racists? I hope one of the black or brown parents sues them for mental anguish and take their houses.
