Guess which students got suspended in Rome, Georgia?

Nah, won't give the chance to guess, it's obvious...:

Black students were suspended from their high school for planning a protest after another group of students came to school waving a Confederate flag.

Last week, a group of students at Coosa High School in Rome, Ga., were filmed waving the Confederate flag and hurling racial slurs.

Newsweek (https://www.newsweek.com/georgia-high-school-students- [break] say-they-were-suspended-planned-confederate-flag-protest-1638291) reported that the four students filmed were carrying the Confederate flag in favor of "farm day" on school spirit day, which led up to homecoming.

They did not face any repercussions.

In response, many students said the school did not do much to reprimand the students carrying the flag; and there was a protest planned to bring awareness to the problem, CBS 46 Atlanta reported.

However, the school administration suspended several students who were planning the protest. Student protesters tell CBS 46 that only Black students were suspended.

"The administration is aware of tomorrow's planned protest," the administrator said over the intercom before the planned demonstration. "Police will be present here at school and if students insist on encouraging this kind of activity they will be disciplined for encouraging unrest."

Two white students participating in the Friday protest were not suspended, even though they claimed to be as disruptive as the Black students, CBS reported.
.
In Floyd county, where the county the school resides, 8 percent of Black students were suspended, the highest number. CBS reported.

Six percent of students with two or more races were suspended; 4 percent of white students were suspended and 2 percent of Hispanic students were suspended.

According to county data, Floyd County is made up of 70 percent white people, with 14 percent being Black people and about 8 percent Hispanic people.

The only comment I have is that MTG represents that district, so....
No effin' wonder.

If promoting unrest is the cause then the chucklef***s waiving the confederate flag around should be suspended as well.

The confederacy has taken off the mask, pun intended, to show their true colors.

1/6 rioters and the like should be sentenced to carry around the flag.

They've taken off the mask now. The Yankees should have severely punished the Confederacy from the start instead of going easy on them.

They should protest it by using it as a handkerchief.
