Two students at Walt Whitman High School in Montgomery County posted an image of themselves in blackface on a social media account over the weekend, and used the “n-word” while describing their picture, the school’s principal said.
The Montgomery County police were called and helped investigate the use of the racist term, Principal Robert W. Dodd said in a letter to the school community. He said such behavior would not be tolerated at Whitman.
Capt. Tom Jordan, a Montgomery County Police spokesman, said the school resource officer assigned to the school investigated and documented it as a bias-related incident. The students’ actions were determined to not be criminal, Jordan said.
