Parents pulled Black students from Killeen High School Friday morning after presumed white supremacists posted threats to Instagram, reports the New York Daily News.
“This is a final warning to all the n—— out there,” the message from jakedajesus254 read. “I’m gonna beat UR a—- I wanna fight every n—– who thinks he can take me. I will be fighting everyone I can tomorrow after school in front of the school.”
The message quickly spread, leading to 352 absences out of the approximately 2,000 student population.
“I didn’t want to take any chances. An unexcused absence is better than a permanent absence to me,” Latasha Wilkerson-Nixon told the local paper as she picked up her daughter.
