Rightful Punishment for Racial Harassment at Newton High

This petition had 109 supporters

Racial Harassment at Newton High seems too not be taken seriously.  The 'n' word is used daily and seems to never be addressed. I myself had things yelled at me like "white power" and I have talked about it with the administration. The same student who makes these comments is reported to harass others also. Yet, he still proceeds to go to school. I wish that my school would take care of Racial Harassment as much as they take care of drugs in the bathroom. Students of not of the Caucasian race feel left out and isolated. Racism cannot be solved but it can be addressed. Students who use racial slurs or talk about other races inappropriately should be addressed and should be taken seriously as drugs for schools to have safe and caring environments.
