As a black student in the predominantly white Urbandale Middle School, 14-year-old Donte Johnson says he’s seen his fair share of racial harassment. But never anything like this.
Another student left a KKK membership application on his locker. Donte’s mother complained to the principal, but says he sort of blew her off.
“He was like ‘they listen to it in the music and it’s on TV and comedians joke about it’ but that doesn’t make it okay,” says Tara Patterson
The superintendent says the student responsible was disciplined, but because of privacy laws the district can’t say what that discipline included.
