ROME, GEORGIA

White students at Coosa High School in Georgia, waved the confederate flag, and hurled racial slurs leading up to homecoming. The students with the confederate flag did not face any repercussions from the school for their actions. However, school officials suspended several students of color who were protesting.

NEWSWEEK reported on the incident that happened at Coosa High School. According to the report, four white students were filmed carrying the confederate flag around the school. Those students did not face any punishment. However, when the school administration discovered some students were planning to protest the incident, they threatened to suspend them from school.

“The administration is aware of tomorrow’s planned protest. Police will be present here at school and if students insist on encouraging this kind of activity they will be disciplined for encouraging unrest.”

The school administrator said over the school’s intercom. Multiple students participated in the protest on Friday morning. Two white students who participated in the protest were not suspended, even though they said they were just as “disruptive” as the black protesters. Only black students were suspended after the protest.
