Regrann from @dp_mind.and.soul - The #Connellsville Area #SchoolDistrict said it’s investigating claims by #PennHills #students and #parents who say #racialslurs were being used during a varsity #soccer match between the #Pennsylvaniahighschools. Nancy Hines the superintendent of Penn Hills School District scrapped all sports games against Connellsville until the allegations of hate speech have been completely investigated by the Western Pennsylvania Interscholastic Athletic League. Hines told the Tribune Review, “It was so disturbing that it warranted our position and immediate involvement of WPIAL.” She said Penn Hills will not travel to Connellsville until the situation is resolved. A soccer game took place between Penn Hills and Connellsville athletes on Sept 6. Lisa Silverman, a #mother of a Penn Hills player said fans and students from the opposing side began taunting a #Blackstudent. In annoyance, the student turned around and told the Connellsville student section to “shut up.” Silverman, who’s white said the referees failed to address “the #racialhatred directed at our players” and “continued to ignore what was happening in the stands and on the field.” She said game officials chastised the Black players who were being harassed instead of the student sections throwing around racial slurs.
The witness’ son Jonah Silverman said the incident affected all the players. He said they told the referees about the name calling, but game officials did nothing about it.
“We felt helpless,” said Jonah.
Joseph Bradley, the superintendent of Connellsville School District, said they’re taking the matter seriously and will not tolerate foul conduct from fans, students or the players. “Let alone ones of the disgusting nature and or gravity of this type,” Bradley stated to the news source. “At this point, CASD is fully cooperating with Penn Hills School District and the WPIAL as we seek to fully investigate, apply appropriate consequences or programmatic changes, and ultimately provide a teachable moment to all involved.”
Western Pennsylvania Interscholastic Athletic League states that the meeting for the board of directors will be Sept. 17. #foodforthought #rbg #panafr

I am going to keep it brief but guess who’s the new historian for the Black Student Alliance on campus. This guy 😁😁. This years going really great ✨

#privateschool in the US is facing a backlash after it sent a #blackstudent home for having “#unnaturalhair”. Video footage shows eleven-year-old #FaithFennidy in tears as she is forced to leave her classroom at the #ChristtheKingParish School in #Louisiana for having braided hair.
The school said students were not allowed to have #extensions or #hairpieces and Faith would therefore have to change her #hairstyle.

In the video, which has been viewed more than two million times, Faith’s mother can be heard asking teachers to explain their decision, asking: "What's wrong with her hair? Her hair is fine.” Faith’s brother, Steven, said she had been wearing similar #braids to the school for the last two years and does so because it makes her hair easier to maintain. “Over the summer the school has sneakily added in a policy that no extensions, clip-ins or weaves are allowed…Extensions make the hair easier to maintain. It allows my sister to have access to the swimming pool without having to get her hair re-done every night,” Mr Fennidy wrote on Facebook.

The family has accused the school of #racism and said they are considering suing for #discrimination.
They are also looking for another school for Faith to attend.
