The tension is high after a Wake Forest High School student is suspended after an altercation.
Sophomore, Micah Speed, claims to have been bullied relentlessly by the white classmate and the subject of many racially charged remarks.
A video taken in a North Carolina high school has started a massive debate around racially targeted bullying. During an altercation between the students, Speed became so irate that he resorted to violence.
According to Speed, he felt that he reached his breaking point.
“He said things like … I need to name my son ‘Convict’ and ‘Crackhead’ … because that’s what they’ll grow up to be,” Micah told ABC 11. “He threw the N-word around very loosely, said things that I looked like I bathed in coffee beans and dirt.”
After the incident, Speed received a 10-day suspension — which has since been reduced to five days.
His friend Tyler Goodell posted the video to Instagram with an explanation defending Speed and condemning the school for not acting against the student who used racial slurs.
After his suspension, Micah’s classmates protested against the school for his suspension. Read more about this issue at ABC 11.
