A North Carolina school district has recalled all its senior yearbooks after school administrators saw a white female student’s quote that read, “Build the Wall.”
The school’s principal asked students to return the senior yearbooks that had already been distributed.
They started recalling the yearbooks this week after a screenshot of a blonde female student’s photo with Donald Trump’s campaign slogan as her quote appeared on social media.
This caused outrage from critics who called the school “racist.” The school now says the use of Trump’s quote amounted to “inappropriate conduct” which it would never “tolerate.”
The school decided not to take any disciplinary action against the girl. However, some feel the school’s decision infringed on the student’s first amendment rights.
Richmond Early College High School, based in Hamlet, North Carolina, is a predominantly white public school with 214 students.
100% Fed Up reports:
So a harmless Trump quote is causing a firestorm of discussion about free speech and a social media backlash against the school system in Richmond County, NC for holding up the school yearbooks. “Build that Wall” is perceived to be a “racist” comment so the brainiacs at the school are taking back the books…idiotic!
How is it racist to want to protect your borders?
