Dozens of community members—students, parents, and activists—gathered outside Prior Lake High School..., denouncing the racist environment at the school while also rallying behind a Black student targeted by a racist video shared on social media.
Johnathon McClellan with the Minnesota Justice Coalition said: “George Floyd was murdered only 22 miles from this high school. This is happening in your backyard and in your kids’ schools, putting your children at risk.”
McClellan called Prior Lake High administrators out, saying the “lack of action creates a hostile learning environment for students of color. The school has an obligation to protect its vulnerable student population, not dismiss their complaints or tell them they have to learn to deal with it. This is unacceptable.”
