Baton Rouge area Catholic school responds to student's racist essay about Black History MonthBreaking News
tags: racism, Baton Rouge
Parents and students of a Catholic high school received a letter, apologizing after a student's essay that chastised African Americans circulated on the internet.
The essay, assigned to a class at St. Michael the Archangel in Baton Rouge, was about Black History Month. Instead of writing about events in February in support of equality for all races, a white student wrote she was “unpleased” with having to write such a paper and continued not everyone is created equal.
WBRZ.com has made an editorial decision not to include many of the overtly racist quotes from the paper in this story, but you can find a picture provided to reporters by concerned individuals HERE. Only a few paragraphs were seen in images shared with WBRZ on at least two occasions this weekend.
