BERKELEY, CA — A crowd of nearly 2,000 high school students took to the streets of Berkeley this past Thursday (Nov. 5) to protest the threats of terrorism delivered by a white extremist at Berkeley High School.
The students marched to UC Berkeley, where they voiced their displeasure for what had just transpired at their school that day. According to reports, a student was found creating a memo in the school’s library that read, KKK Forever Public Lynching December 9th 2015. Once questioned about committing such an act, the male student confessed to doing so.
In reaction to the threat that was made via computer on Thursday, the school has opted to use the exact same date of the threat’s manifestation (Dec. 9) to allow the Melanoid students of the school the opportunity to openly discuss issues of race with school district officials. Possible solutions to this issue will also be proposed among the students.
The Black Student Union of Berkeley High School posted the following Tweet in response to the terroristic threat made that day.
