Nicholas Senn High School consists of nearly 25.8 percent. Of the student body is black, 42.3 percent Latino, 11.2 percent white, and 17.5 percent Asian students studying there at the present date.
Racial Discrimination In School, Led To Silent Protest:
The students there felt a sense of discrimination and hence started a protest. Their protest was a silent protest that never included any violence. Some of the teachers at the school tried to raise the sense of racism at the school by asking a student to back to her country when she refused to stand up during the national anthem as a sign of protest.
Yésica Salazar, 17, claims to be a U.S. citizen since birth. I told the entire incident that was happened at the school on 30th January 2020. It was a Hispanic heritage assembly where some students refused to stand during the national anthem to protest U.S. immigration policies, anti-immigrant rhetoric, and police brutality. Two teachers told them they have to leave if they didn’t stand, but they didn’t move a bit.
Teacher Yelled, ‘Go back to your country,’ On Student:
At this time, another teacher arrived at the spot. And allegedly said one of the students,’ Go back to your country,’ that made the Student feel very bad and discriminated. Thus she left the auditorium. Mary Beck, the school’s principal of the school, had addressed students during the protest and said that she had notified the school district as soon as she was reported of this alleged action of the teacher of her school.
Salazar said she felt very offended at the comment. Of the teacher, because she had faced the discrimination with her in real as her parents are from Mexico and they have migrated here for a better life. In meanwhile, a 15 years old was arrested by the police in the account of pushing a 55 years old lady, who fell down and was hurt.
