A group of Black students in Georgia say they were suspended from school after officials learned of their planned protest against racism.

According to CBS 46 Atlanta, the demonstration was to take place at Coosa High School, where a group of white students were  filmed waving the Confederate flag and allegedly spewing racial slurs. Students say the incident took place during a homecoming spirit day earlier this month, but did not result in any disciplinary action. 

“I felt really disrespected how the school didn’t do anything about it and when we are not allowed wear BLM (Black Lives Matter) stuff and they are allowed to carry a racist flag around,” student organizer Deziya Fain told CBS 46.

After learning their classmates would not be punished for their behavior, Fain and her classmate Jaylynn Murray began organizing an anti-racism demonstration. However, the school quickly attempted to squash those plans, and threatened to discipline students who chose to protest on campus. CBS 46 obtained a recording of an intercom announcement that warned students not to participate.
