Black and white battle each other on California school campus

A "race riot" broke out at a high school in California last week between what parents say was Armenian students on one side and black and Hispanic students on the other.

    Local KTLA reported that an emergency meeting was held on Monday after a video posted online showed what appeared to be dozens of students involved in skirmishes at Hoover High School in Glendale last week.

    Hoover High School students told the outlet that such violence was routine. A mass stabbing incident happened at the school last year in July 2017, when four teenage boys suffered stab wounds and a young man was arrested, according to San Diego Unified School District officials.

    The teenagers involved in the fight last week — described by concerned parents as racially motived — were reportedly kept in separate rooms on Monday and speaking to counselors in “restorative circles”.

    Law enforcement had to be called in when the brawl broke out last Wednesday on school grounds at Hoover.

    Parents told KTLA that their children had spoken of racial tension on campus between Armenian students — said to be the largest ethnic group in the school — and football players, who are mostly black, Latino.

    A screenshot of a Snapchat message shared with KTLA contained explicit racial overtures. It read: “Whoever it not Armenian we’re going to shoot.”

    Parents said that message circulated on social media on Thursday night. Despite this being sent around, they were not informed by school administrators until Friday, one hour after classes had begun, they complained.

    Many similar racial fights have not been reported in US national media. A large brawl involving five students last week at Sahuaro High School in Tucson, Arizona, and a race riot at Hartford Public High School in Hartford, Connecticut also from last week involving some 75 students, were not nationally reported.
