A North Carolina high school recalled ALL the yearbooks after a senior quote was found to be “inappropriate.” A senior quote is a line that seniors can choose to have placed under their senior photo, as kind of their last little goodbye quote.

A female senior, who has been unnamed, chose to have “Build that wall – Donald Trump” written as her senior quote in the Richmond Early College High School’s yearbook.

Apparently quoting the president is not okay. However, I cannot help but think if she’d quoted Obama, they would have praised her.

Heatstreet reports:

It was decried as racist and hurtful to minority students at the school – while others simply mocked her lack of imagination.

“What I’m even more upset over is the fact that this is the best she could do in choosing a powerful quote that captures the essence of her character,” one person called Dan English said.

“Seriously?! I would be embarrassed to know that my defining moment in the yearbook was advocating for Trump’s divisive agenda” he continued.

According to the Charlotte Observer, 22% of Richmond High School students are Hispanic.

Around 20 of the books had been distributed school principal Tonya Waddell discovered the “errors” in the first versions. They were taken back the same morning and are being reprinted, the school district said.

So what I gather from this is that the high school administration is filled with a bunch of snowflake social justice warriors.

The school is receiving backlash now, with people criticizing the censorship. The National Coalition Against Censorship (NCAC) even issued a statement that reprimanded the school’s decision.

What do you think? Was it an “inappropriate” quote?
