Racist posts on social media linked to a South Bay high
school have led school administrators to a disciplinary investigation.

Saint Francis High School in Mountain View has informed its
community about an Instagram page mocking George Floyd, a page that the school
president says appears to be connected to recently graduated seniors.

Local high school students attending a Black Lives Matter
protest say it’s unacceptable but not surprising.

“I’ve seen racism subtle and blatant all over the place,”
one student said. “I can’t say it surprises me with seniors.”

A petition is now circulating urging discipline for the
recent graduates. Protesters say Saint Francis made the right decision to shine
a light on the racist posts.
