Citizens protest racism in the street. This is one way to encourage change (Photo by Ted Eytan).

At Shawnee Mission East High School in recent days, a Black, female student, Brey’Anna Brown, was brutalized by a white, male student who was shouting the N-word and shoved Brown which led to the physical altercation. Brown was suspended for five days which is being criticized by the community and students since they were defending themself.

The incident was unprovoked and caused an uprise in school protests. Parents, students, and others in the community have been protesting against this injustice. The racist tendencies of the school have been brought to light and the situation doesn’t seem to be going away anytime soon.

Ava Rushing, Website Manager
Hi there! My name is Ava and this is my second year in SPUB. I’m the proud website manager of Stampede News! I’m beyond excited to help the website run this year and to interact more with our readers! Journalism is so important because it’s how we as people connect with each other; stories bring people together through events and common interests. When I’m not stressing at school you can find me at Cookie Co, where I work, or spending way too much money at Target.
