South Dakota students show up with 'White Pride' shirts
Students at a public school in South Dakota were sent home for wearing homemade “White Pride World Wide" t-shirts.

Six students at Chamberlain School wore the shirts on Wednesday. Two of them changed their clothing but four refused to do so.

Codie Novotny said she and her friends created the shirts because Indian students have complained about racism at the school. She also said that Indian students wear "Native Pride" clothing.

“We were trying to make a point to the school,” Novotny told The Mitchell Daily Republic. “They’'re allowed to wear (Native Pride clothing) in school.”

The back of the t-shits featured an image associated with white supremacy groups, along with the word "cracker." The school does not allow clothing that promotes racial slurs.

About 32 percent of the student population is Indian.
