A Brandon High school student is in trouble after posting a tweet last week. Last Thursday, she said she hated African-Americans, using profanity and a racial slur.
School officials are not revealing the teen's name or what happened to her. They say students can face suspension, or even be temporarily sent to an alternative school for inappropriate messages. The tweet was sent during school hours, and that's why the school got involved.
African-Americans make up about 30% of the student population. Some have went to school officials expressing their anger over the tweet.
