'Zoom-bombers' hijack online classes at suburban middle school, spew racist rants


September 2, 2020

The first day of online learning provided an important lesson for a group of northwest suburban middle school students earlier this week, but it wasn’t the one their teachers intended.

Instead, some students at Emerson Middle School in Niles got a lesson in digital security and racism.

During the first day of e-learning Thursday, classes were hijacked by an unknown hacker who used “inappropriate, racist, religious, hateful and homophobic language,” according to an email Emerson principal Samantha Alaimo sent to families Thursday. The hacker used the n-word and talked about resuming slavery.
