Minnesota Attorney General Keith Ellison met with Chaska residents at a discussion last month hosted by anti-racist community group Residents Organizing Against Racism.

In a suburban Minnesota school district in turmoil over a series of racist incidents, a group of black students and alumni say administrators and teachers knowingly allowed white students to discriminate against them for years, hindering their education and inflicting emotional abuse.

In a federal lawsuit, the current and former students allege Eastern Carver County Schools "turned a blind eye" as they endured physical assaults, death threats and racial slurs, such as being called a "monkey" or "donkey." Some students say the racist bullying has driven them to leave the district for a safer environment.
