A 9th grade African American student, who has been harrassed for over a year by white classmates, found a KKK symbol and noose on her desk while in art class. Initially the student who placed the items at the desk was suspended for 1 day by principal of Baldwin-Woodville High School in Wisconsin, Eric Russell. However, when the childs foster parents contacted the NAACP, the supension was lengthened. The parent, Sarah Hitzeman said, "“To have a school that has no tolerance for bullying but a lot of tolerance for racial issues isn’t right. I want my daughter to understand this isn’t okay, and she doesn’t have to accept it.” Previous harrassment includes: students calling her 'Big Mocha'; inappropriate sexual comments; and teasing about her hari texture.
