Black Student Confesses to Racist Vandalism That Prompted Massive School Walk Out

Over 1,000 students walked out of Missouri’s Parkway Central High School to protest racist graffiti scrawled on their bathroom walls last month. However, the graffiti turned out to be a hoax.

According to Parkway Superintendent Keith Marty, slurs were scrawled on bathroom walls at both Parkway Central and North high schools.

To protest the “hate,” students cussed out administrators and staff, walked out of classes, cried, and made a list of demands for change.

After finding out that the hateful messages were written by a black student, Marty said that it “does not diminish the hurt it caused or the negative impact it has on our entire community.”

“We cannot presume the reasons a student would do this and it will be important to understand why this happened as we move forward,” Marty continued, according to a report from STL Today.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports, “Brittanee Jackson, a 17-year-old senior at Parkway Central who participated in the walkout, called the revelations that a Black student had written the messages ’embarrassing,’ but said in an interview Tuesday with the Post-Dispatch that it did not diminish the student protesters’ anti-racism message.”

“The incident marked the second time in recent years that a student of color was caught writing racist graffiti in a Parkway high school. In 2017, a nonwhite student admitted to writing ‘White lives matter’ followed by a racial slur in a Parkway Central bathroom,” the report continued.

“Earlier this year, two 18-year-olds, one of whom was Black, were charged with causing property damage after spray-painting racist graffiti on the outside of Kirkwood High School and Nipher and North Kirkwood middle schools. A juvenile was also referred to St. Louis Family Court.”

    Be sure to buy my upcoming book, “Dear Black People” in which I deconstruct their black privilege and show them how to be better!

    Why do people defend not only fighting for a faux cause but are also unwilling to say hey this specific example of racism was fake. Never once do people who fight racism ever consider that their enemy is well defeated.

    Obviously, the student in question has not experienced the racism that she believes in and she cannot accept the dissonance. She had to manufacture the hate of which she needs to be the victim.

    Wonder how far the fake racism/saying the world is racist will go before the REAL racism starts in an irreversible way. Almost as if that is what the Jim Crow establishment wanted this whole time

    Doesn’t diminish their message? Laughable. Maybe that would be true if their message was racism is bad. Although such a message hardly even needs said and is about as shocking as saying fish live in water. But the consistent narrative is that white people are all or majority racist and that this shows that they’re experiencing racism. But the real message is far more meaningful. Racism is both so rare and so decried that a student had to invent racist because no genuine racism could be found, and did this knowing that it be a source of power for them to feed whatever narcissistic selfish desire they wanted.
