Racist messages prompt high school walkout in solidarity with Black students

Hundreds of White Bear Lake Area High School students march down McKnight Road during a school “walkout” protest that was organized in response to racist and threatening Instagram comments directed towards Black students, as well as ongoing systemic racism. Many of the students attending the gathering outside at south campus showed their support for their fellow students with handmade signs.
