Before I start I just want to say my highchool is in Arizona, so the race is more leaned towards minorities.
It was just a normal Friday, quiet as usual in 4th period. Class was going by slow in Algebra II. My phone was taken away due to 17%. in that same class so I didn't know what everyone was planning until a few Mexicans started to walk out without saying a word from class that caught our conservative Jewish Substitute off-guard. A few other people checked their phones aka snapchat and also followed in walk out he door. Keep in mind our school resembles a giant cul de sac with a giant open field in the middle, where we were about to have club rush during lunch hour.
My class of 35 was dropped to 7, including me and a few other white kids. Looking out the giant window that was in view of the giant center field I could see well over a hundred kids (200 maybe) all sitting down in the middle, with security already out their talking on their talkies about stuff. A few liberal teachers were also out there, along with other teachers who had their entire class drained. A few students got up and formed one giant chain around the circle but no words were exchanged.
A few of the people left in my class looked at me, as it seemed as they were wondering why I wasn't joining my 'brothers' in this act of defiance against DACA removal. Well I didn't know what the fuck was going on since no one really spread the word other then on snapchat, I thought it was something completely unrelated.
The walkout lasted for like 10-15 minutes, until some teens got the bright idea to start vaping and playing some hardcore Kendrick Lamar on a portable speaker. That's when security and the teachers took action and made everyone disperse.
Day went on normally after that, other than a group of Mexicans breaking out the portable speakers once again and playing mariachi music back out on the field during lunch, which led to a all out salsa/dance session from a wide variety of students.That part was kinda queer in my opinion. ^_^ just jesting.
Anyway we have a varsity game today and theres talks of another protest, though I wont be able to make it. Just thought I'd share.
Yeah, that does sound a bit queer.
But then there would be no cool and inspiring snap chat stories to brag about how much of a 'difference maker'' you are.
