Students Walk Out Of High School After A Girl Had To Remove Her Black Lives Matter T-Shirt

Buckeye High School in Arizona said the girl was told to remove her t-shirt because it “interfered” with the learning process and became “a potential danger to students.”

In her Facebook post — shared by more than 1,000 people —Harvard said that the vice principal handed her a plain white shirt to change into after telling her that she wasn’t allowed to wear her BLM shirt because she had previously argued with a “young caucasian boy” who said “black lives don’t matter and “that shirt is meaningless.”

Harvard said that she had been verbally attacked several times while wearing her t-shirt. She also claimed that she had seen another student wearing a “confederate flag t-shirt that clearly supports racism.”

“At this point i'm starting to believe theirs a problem with the word black?” Harvard wrote. “It must be since they don't teach us about black people in school or tell me that me standing for my people against police brutality is 'disruptive in a learning environment.'”
