The post, which was formatted like a school policy item, is full of racist and discriminatory language. In a screenshot of the post seen by CBS13, a “District-Wide High School No Black People Policy” page was seemingly placed on the school’s website.
In a statement released by Land, she said, “In the past few years, Rio Americano was identified as one of three schools on a list for a possible mass shooting and this recent racist behavior only adds additional fear and concern of the black student population being targeted for acts of violence.”MORE NEWS: Two Shot In Elk Grove Near Heathermist Way and Fallbright Way
