Paw Paw Schools Keep Racist R-word by 4 -3 Board of Education Vote

 

February 9, 2017



PAW PAW, MICHIGAN – Under a banner with the words, “The future is now,” the Paw Paw Schools Board of Education voted 4 – 3 Wednesday night to keep the racist R-word as part of their identity. This, in spite, of dozens of American Indians from the region who for months have attended meetings declaring they object to the continued use by the school district to use the R-word and image, which they maintained is racist, offensive and does not honor American Indians.
