A high school suspends fivel students for wearing white tee shirts for senior photos. Apparently white students are not allowed to wear white. It would also seem the same applies for Asian students, as at least one Asian student was also suspended for allegations of being a White supremacist because he too wore an evil white tee shirt.
Student David White told FOX 35 News. ”I’m Asian, I don’t see how I could be a white supremacy[sic].”
The disciplined students received their punishment Wednesday after a senior class picture was taken, in which a group of students all wore white T-shirts. Following heightened tension and incidents of white supremacy-themed graffiti at the school, the students were deemed to be involved in such activity and were given four-day suspensions. 1
Apparently the action is necessary to protect students because a “white power gang” exists.
Superintendent of Santa Cruz City Schools Gary Bloom also acknowledged the recent punishment at Soquel High School to combat “hate speech and bullying,” although he would not discuss specifics.
“We are doing everything we can to create a safe environment in our schools,” Bloom said. “We are also doing everything we can to stay on top of gang behavior. We have gangs in our community, including a white power gang. We’re responsible for dealing with these issues as they bubble up from the community into our schools.” 2
