Chapter 6 – racism

When I was reading chapter 6 I cam across this story that happend in 2006. It had to do with a  black student wanting to sit under a “white tree.” Word got out and when this black student and his two friends approached the tree the next day there were three nooses hanging from it. Fights broke out at school and in the end it was the black students that really got in trouble. This story really shows how racist people stil are and how racist bias still occurs today, its pretty sad. What suprised me the most was how recent this incident happend.
