BLOOMFIELD HILLS, Michigan. – A massive student walkout is scheduled for Friday at Bloomfield Hills High School after multiple racist incidents involving students at the school.
The students said the racist incidents had not been sufficiently addressed by the administration.
Monday, school officials have been informed a racist post on social media created by one of the students.
Wednesday, the district issued a statement regarding another incident of racist hate speech. This time the comment was found written on the wall of one of the school toilets.
Students told Local 4 that there had been incidents of anti-LGBTQ + hate speech in addition to the racist comments. They said those accused of making racist comments are only suspended for two days.
Students are planning a school-wide walkout on Friday afternoon. They hope the walkout will encourage staff to take the incidents seriously.
School officials said Bloomfield Township Police were investigating the racist incidents.
