MIDDLETOWN, OH — A 15-year-old white student was arrested yesterday after it was shown that he made threats to kill the Black students at his school this past Thursday.
The school known as Middletown High School, has a student body comprising of a majority white student body, but this fact didn’t seem to satisfy the white male student, who was taken into custody upon discovering a note that was written by him describing his intentions of killing Black students in the school. The note was thereafter given to the school’s resource officer, Brandon Highley.

According to Cincinnati’s WCPO, both authorities have declined to comment on the matter at hand, instead attempting to reassure both the students and their families that the situation has been properly handled and that everyone is safe.
Middletown High School isn’t the only high school in the state of Ohio to contain cases of savage scholastic racism within its walls. Last month, there was a report of similar treatment of Black students in Pickerington, OH, which is approximately two hours northeast of Middletown, which involved a young Melanoid girl receiving nasty racist taunts and epithets via social media from the white students at that particular school.
In the midst of Middletown High‘s officials and law enforcement’s joint efforts to protect the identity of the white male who threatened to kill Black students, it illustrates another example of the glaring double standard that has been established between young Black teenage boys and their white counterparts.
