High School Students Rally Around Black Teen Suspended After Reacting To Racist Taunts | The Black Youth Project

High School Students Rally Around Black Teen Suspended After Reacting To Racist Taunts | The Black Youth Project – According to a friend and classmate of Micah’s, he was only reacting after being pushed to his breaking point following months of being targeted with racial taunts from the white student.

“He said things like … I need to name my son ‘Convict’ and ‘Crackhead’ … because that’s what they’ll grow up to be,” Micah told ABC11. “He threw the N-word around very loosely, said things that I looked like I bathed in coffee beans and dirt.”

Micah’s friend, Tyler Goodell, posted his account of what happened on Instagram, sparking a debate on how someone should respond to racism.
