A high school in Anaheim, CA is under fire for what they call 'Seniores & Senioritas' day, an annual celebration for the senior class.
This year, some students dressed as gang members, one dressed as a pregnant woman pushing a baby stroller. Others were dressed as the border patrol. The Los Angeles Times had a picture from the school on its homepage today.
Canyon High School now taking a lot of heat for allowing the demeaning costumes during senior week. It happened for the last three years at the school.
According to the LA Times database of California schools, a racial breakdown of the school shows 55% are white students, with about 16% Latino. School officials say next year the event will be replaced with an international week, plus administrators will undergo diversity and sensitivity training. The school will also offer an ethnic studies class.
