WHITEFISH BAY, Wis. (CBS 58) -- The Whitefish Bay School District is asking parents to talk to their children about race after incidents of white students asking black students for an "N-Pass."
The "N-Pass" also called a "black-pass" or "black card" supposedly gives a white student permission to use the N-word.
In a letter to parents, Whitefish Bay School District said the actions of their students is "not acceptable to us." The letter goes on to say, "We are deeply troubled to hear that any of our students believe that it is appropriate to use this kind of abusive, racially-charged language under any circumstances."
WFB Schools says leaders at the middle and high school will address the "N-pass" in "age appropriate ways outlining why this is not acceptable and what the consequences are for using this kind of language."
The note goes on to ask parents to consider talking to their children about race and why the N-word is inappropriate.
If you have a child that has been asked for an "N-pass" or has been bullied in other ways you are asked to fill out a bullying or harassment form.
