Racially Charged South Phila. High School Gets NAACP Chapter
There's a new youth chapter of the NAACP at South Philadelphia High School, the scene of racial violence and an Asian student boycott earlier this month.
Black and Asian students cheered on Tuesday after taking the oath making them members of a new youth chapter of the NAACP at South Philly High.
NAACP board member Wali Smith praised the Asian students who boycotted school for eight days because they didn't feel safe after a December 3rd racial brawl:
"I knew it took a lot of courage, because it's not popular standing up. It's really not popular. It's not cool."
