Must not note racial differences in sport
Hundreds of students at a Baltimore County school held a peaceful protest Thursday after a classmate apparently wrote a racial slur on a baseball field and posted the image to Snapchat.
An Eastern Tech High School student posed with a racial slur on a baseball field with the caption "Baseball is a white man's sport." The incident upset many students and parents.
"We felt like we had to make a difference and if it wasn't us it would be nobody," senior Ashlyn Woods said.
Woods and other students held a peaceful protest Friday morning in the school lobby, but it turned into an all-day discussion about race relations with most of the student body taking part.
