ACLU Files Lawsuit On Behalf of Bullard HS Student Against Fresno Unified Over Blackface Video

FRESNO, CA (KMJ) – A lawsuit is filed against Fresno Unified School District.

The ACLU claims the school district has failed to protect students from ongoing racial abuse.

The discrimination complaint is on behalf of two students at Bullard High, over a blackface video that was posted on social media on June.

The video was made by a white classmate.

Two clips from Snapchat show a 15-year-old Bullard High School cheerleader joking with her friends, in blackface, saying the “N” word.

Her parents say the video was posted while the student was at her friend’s house.

The students claim in the laswsuit that they have been bullied and harassed as a result of the video.
