Teachers and students have been rallying together since the tragic shooting at Santa Fe High School on 18 May. The horrific shooting saw 10 people lose their lives with a further 13 injured.
At a time when America should perhaps focus up making schools a safe space for learning, there appears to be a bigger discussion around race and segregation, after a picture went viral of of Nicole, a black student at Santa Fe High, not holding hands with her white classmates before a basketball game.
Social media predictably exploded at the cropped picture and the race card was immediately played: 'Why they holding everyone’s hand except the black girl?'
Apparently no context was needed for people to start throwing around some pretty damning accusations at the drop of a hat, stirring up controversy spectacularly.
