The American Civil Liberties Union of Northern California filed a discrimination complaint against the Fresno Unified School District Thursday on behalf of two black Bullard High School students, claiming the school failed to protect students from racial abuse. 

 

There’s been a pattern of racism and anti-blackness throughout the district, ACLU staff attorney Abre’ Conner said. Most recently, a white cheerleader at Bullard High posted a video of herself wearing blackface and saying the n-word on Snapchat in May.

“This is what my ritual would be when I get home from a day being 'masculine me' and working to fix the computer issues of the day,” Argain said.
