A local mother says she was in disbelief when she found out what happened to her son, an eighth grade student at Northeast Regional Catholic School in Philadelphia.
“I couldn’t believe that this is still going on in this day and age,” said the woman, who did not want to be identified. “Especially at a religious school.”
The woman says her son, who is African American, was the target of racist bullying back on Feb. 27. According to the woman, two white students took her son’s notebook and wrote racial slurs on it.
