4 Catholic H.S. Students Expelled After Bringing Confederate Flag To School & Blackface Incident

 The south isn’t the only region of the U.S. with it’s share of racist behavior. Four Catholic high school students from Long Island, NY have been expelled after two senior boys brought a Confederate flag to an even at school and two sophmore girls posted a photo in blackface on social media. Check out the details below…

The two events were separate, according to Gary Cregan, principal of St. Anthony’s High School.

Two days later on Friday, the girls posted a photo of one of them in blackface, along with racist language, the school confirmed.

In a letter to parents on Friday about the flag incident, Cregan said the use of symbol “designed to revive past injustices or to inflame discrimination or racial intolerance is completely unacceptable and profoundly offensive.”

“St. Anthony’s will always demand acceptance and respect for all races, religions and cultures,” he wrote. – Via NBC
