  1. Hopefully find the culprits

  2. Why is high school idiocy making national news?

  3. Hi everyone. Read my second comment. If I put it as my first. It gets censored

  4. Overdone.

    These smells like a publicity stunt. A GENIUS PUBLICITY STUNT.

  6. Happy Birthday 🎂🎂🎂 Congratulations on your Scholarship 💖💖💖😘

  7. Is it possible to retroactively cash in on past bullying? 🤔 Does it _have_ to be racially motivated? If he could get a scholarship just for some writing in yearbook, then surely getting physically assaulted by school bullies should earn at least a new car or something right? 🤨

    What was the remark? Who was responsible the school, the yearbook committee, the publisher? Theres a lot of vagaries around this story Id like to be brought up to speed on… I seriously dont see how in this political climate that this could possibly get past a committee, editors, publishers and the school and be published in a yearbook.. !?!?!?!?! Something doesnt seem right here. Im seriously skeptical, especially seeing as how this has been turned into a huge publicity stunt and the Argos giving this guy a 4 year full ride?

    • If you listen, they are investigating to see how it happened and who did it. They will be dealt with accordingly.

  9. Disgusting!

    I’m happy for him, he deserves all the support and the scholarship is amazing but this seems like the city is making a publicity stunt to profit off the incident. I hope the person who did that and whoever allowed the yearbook to be published is punished and that they apologize.
