Newton North High School says it is taking "appropriate action" in dealing with several students who flew a confederate flag out of a car window in front of the school earlier this week.
A video surfaced Tuesday on Facebook of a red car on Tiger Drive with a confederate flag waving from the window. A student first posted the video and then the post was shared by Black Lives Matter Cambridge.
"The Confederate Flag is a painful sight for many Black people. It's a reminder that the bloodiest war in American history was fought to keep us enslaved," the Black Lives Matter Cambridge post reads. "So when the Confederate Flag is being openly flown in public spaces, especially at a school by students, it is a reminder that we are not welcome."
