Cheerleader representing Racism.

This petition made change with 1,204 supporters!

January 24th 2018, a Twitter post was made, screenshots of a Burke High Cheerleader who was seemingly a good representation of our school, had slid up on a snapchat post, balantly calling an African-American person, a “cotton picker”, John Doe then replied “What did you say”, and the Cheerleader then proceeded her harassments, saying “my grandmother used to order around people like you” , “good ol days.” Since the post, the cheerleader has apologized, but it doesn’t seem sincere. Her words were ignorant, and there was no excuse for what she said. The school had asked the poster to take it down, But I think the school should NOT sweep this under the rug, racism needs to have light shed on it, and I’m ashamed that she represents our school in such a negative way. She does not deserve to be a cheerleader, as a cheerleader is someone who accepts all diversities, and leads the school in a positive manner.
