Two White Kids Held a Racist Homecoming Sign. A Black Kid is Now Banned From School Property

The Black student from Olathe South High School who was blamed by the homecoming girl’s racist mom, has been instructed he is no longer allowed on campus for the rest of the semester.

OLATHE, KANSAS — The Black student from Olathe South High School who was blamed by the homecoming girl’s racist mom (Rhonda Windholz), has been instructed he is no longer allowed on campus for the rest of the semester.

Yes, you read that correctly. A Black student has been told he is no longer allowed on school property because two white kids held a racist sign.

This is a striking blow to any semblance of racial progress for the district.

Our primary source tells us that the student was banned from campus for “his own safety.” That is the only justification we received for why the student was banned from the premises.

Last week, Rhonda Windholz, the mother of the girl holding the sign, published a PR statement blaming the Black child for the two white kids deciding to hold the racist sign. It is unclear why one Black kid could or would create an entire racist photograph production, it is also unclear why the white kids would decide to hold it and smile.

We are the first to report this story and are continuing to gather information from our primary sources. This is a developing story and we will provide updates as we can.
