“The SMF City School District does not condone the use of blackface by anyone for any reason as it is patently offensive and reinforces historically racist stereotypes,” reads a statement to district families from Superintendent Tom Bratten. “The administration is taking this incident very seriously and conducting a complete investigation.
“We will continue to strive to ensure our schools are a welcoming place for everyone.”
The district has declined further comment “due to student confidentiality concerns.”
