Sometimes you come across stories that shake you to the core and this is one of them.
A Tennessee teen was brutally attacked by thug classmates in what appears to be a racially driven attack. Making the situation far worse is the school’s reaction along with the fact that this is not the first time 15-year-old Ethan Humphrey has been attacked by black classmates.
According to reports, Humphrey was walking to a friend’s home after school when a group of black teens asked if he would join their game of football. Humphrey declined the offer as he had somewhere to be, thus the group of thugs decided beat him to a pulp for refusing their offer.
WREG reports there may have been some racism involved:
Ethan supposedly used the N-word, but several students said as he and the other teens were talking, he was just repeating what another student said, ‘that my (N-word) has my back’.
Humphrey’s mom told WTVM that, after the fight, the school put her injured son in a wheelchair, but never took him to a nurse, did not call an ambulance or give him any medical care.
Because some of the alleged attackers live near the Humphrey’s home, the Humphrey family is worried about safety at home and at school.
