Racism Accusations At West Bend East H.S.
WEST BEND - An African-American teenager at West Bend East High School says she is the victim of racism.
Darshane Morgan, 15, says students started taunting her on the second day of school.
"They bump me, they say, 'n------s walk on this side, you're not supposed to walk on this side. I'm going to teach you about showing your face around here,'" Darshane said.
And things, she says, got even worse. Darshane claims students threw eggs at her, and pushed her down a staircase.
"I cried when they pushed me down the stairs. My neck was hurting real bad. (The doctor) said I stretched muscles in my neck," Darshane said.
Darshane's mother, Belivia, was mortified. Especially after Darshane told her this: "She told me a student told her that it was 'n-----r kill day.' So that's when I told her she's not going to school until I talk to the principal."
The school told her they were investigating the incidents.
When contacted by TODAY'S TMJ4, the superintendent's office sent us a letter saying, "The goal remains to keep East High School a safe place for all students."
But Darshane says she does not feel safe.
"It makes me feel scared because they'll be telling me like, watch your back. So I really walk down the halls watching my back. Sitting in class watching my back," Darshane said.
West Bend School officials sent a letter home to parents, asking them to talk to their children about bullying.
Meantime, the Morgan family has filed a police report, and contacted the Waukesha chapter of the NAACP.
