Yearbook’s fake names make fun of black students

Officials at a California high school say they are trying to find out why students were allowed to have false names for black students put in the yearbook.

Clint Harwick, superintendent of Charter Oak High School in Covina, Calif., said it was a “regrettable mistake” that names including “Tay Tay Shaniqua,” “Crisphy Nanos” and “Laquan White” were printed in the yearbook for members of the Black Student Union.

Can you imagine…you’re child being noted as “the janitor” in his high school yearbook?? Sad. AND…how ironic is it that the newscaster got the name wrong of the African American young lady in the story. Extra sad. Evonne rhymes with Yvonne…right?
