Aledo ISD’s superintendent announced an action plan to combat racism in the district. The announcement came as Aledo ISD police investigate another racist incident. Someone left ‘slave sale’ flyers near school campuses.
The incident happened on Snapchat and involved some students discussing how much they would pay to buy their Black classmates. The mock slave auction and the district’s response to it has ignited a firestorm in the town.
