Juniors at Iowa’s Marshalltown High were told to wear white for school spirit week. (Other classes were assigned other colors.) Athlete Blair Van Staalduine posted photos of himself wearing white, including one in which he makes a “W” with his hands. The principal accused him of advocating white pride and suspended him from three football games in the fall, reports WHO TV.
The principal said her son was a racist, said his mother, Cathy Van Staalduine. When she complained, he accused her of being a racist too, she claims.
If juniors had been told to wear orange, he would have worn orange and made an “O,” Blair told his mother.
