OHIO – Court has upheld the suspension of a 12-year-old black boy for staring at a white girl at school in what he called a “staring contest”.
Reportedly, the unidentified student was suspended from a private Catholic school after school officials say he “intimidated” his classmate.
The young black boy claims, he and the white girl were engaged in a staring contest and that she was giggling the whole time.
According to the court documents, the girl said she “felt fearful,” leading the school to suspend the boy despite the fact that he wrote an apology saying he meant no harm.
“I never knew she was scared because she was laughing,” he wrote. “I understand I done the wrong thing that will never happen again. I will start to think before I do so I am not in this situation.”
According to his mother, Candice Tolbert. “My son stared at a girl who was engaged in a staring game. She giggled the entire time. The same girl that accused my son of this act of perception of intimidation, aggressively poured milk on someone else’s lunch. When she did that there was no penalties for that. She received nothing for that,” she explained.
