Racial Tension Erupts in Small Alabama Town
A white girl talking to black boys: that’s what parents of Millry students say caused a father to storm the schools gym last week and a threaten black players on the basketball team.
“He said that if any contact was made to his daughter that he would kill him and his black friends,” said Latisha Mitchell who’s stepson is a member of the team. Mitchell says that her stepson and the young girl were only friends had been text messaging each other.
The incident, some say, has stirred long-standing racial tensions in the town, and now the NAACP is involved and hosted a meeting attended by several parents and students at the school.
