Coatesville, Pennsylvania students walk out in protest over racist pumpkin carvings


Several hundred students at Chester County’s Coatesville Area High School students walked out of school Friday morning in a protest against racism prompted by a posting by schoolmates on social media showing pumpkins carved with a swastika and KKK on them.

The protest came a day after scores of students at Gloucester County’s Washington Township High School staged a sit in after some white students exchanged racially charged social-media messages, leading to a confrontation between some white and black students.

The Coatesville students walked out about 7:30 a.m. and were expected to demonstrate until noon.

School officials, prepared in advance for the protest, monitored the students outside. – READ MORE
