Students at Cass High School in Bartow County, Georgia gathered Wednesday morning in support of President Donald Trump before classes, resulting in a clash and disciplinary action. FOX 5 reports that three students were disciplined following the altercation, which was uploaded to social media.
Students brought Trump signs and flags, MAGA hats, and were shouting racial slurs on campus. Multiple parents are speaking out and saying that Trump merchandise is inappropriate at school.
“They had organized this to see how Black students would react. They planned to wear MAGA hats, T-shirts and hold Trump banners, but they were calling people the N-word too,” Mom Danyelle Jackson told FOX5. Jackson called the superintendent and principal immediately.
Another mom, Tiffany Bogus, told FOX5 her daughter called about the gathering at school. Bogus said that racial slurs could be heard in the background.
School Says ‘Not a Trump Rally’
Facebook Group Bartow News & Emergencies (BNE) published a short clip of the pro-Trump gathering. In it, students can be seen wearing Trump merchandise and holding Trump flags.
Nadia Hall, a bi-racial student, called the pro-Trump gathering “political bullying and intimidation.” In a video published by FOX 5 (which can be viewed below), Hall can be seen confronting the group of students. Allegedly, one of the students poured liquid on her. FOX 5 reports that it is believed to be chewing tobacco saliva. Then, Hall responded by hitting him, causing the confrontation to escalate.
According to FOX5, Hall said she poured water on that same student the day prior when he wore a Trump shirt to school.
The school district released a statement to FOX 5, writing that the incident wasn’t a Trump rally but an “isolated incident.”
They wrote, “This type of behavior, which distracts from the learning environment, is not and will not be tolerated on school grounds. Disciplinary action has been taken to ensure compliance with Bartow County School System’s Code of Conduct and high standards of behavior.”
The school did not identify which students were disciplined and what actions were taken.
