This post has been redacted. When it was published in 2015, it referred to Black people as “blacks” — language that High School Insider acknowledges is derogatory and dehumanizing toward Black people.
HSI works to ensure there is no racist or offensive language in our stories.
This 2015 poll asked students if they believe police racially profile and target Black people. High School Insider is aware this is not up for debate, as a 2019 study found that being killed by police is a leading cause of death for young Black men in America.
