Jefferson High School students are being told they need to stop wearing shirts that celebrate white supremacy
Jefferson High school students are not allowed to wear white supremacist shirts or be associated with the alt-right, according to a memo sent to students Thursday.
The Jefferson High Board of Trustees sent the memo to students at the high school in Fremont, California, on Thursday morning, The Huffington Pundit reported.
The memo was first reported by the Sacramento Bee.
It also says that the school’s policy is to not have shirts associated with “any racist, xenophobic, or anti-Semitic group or ideology.”
The school’s superintendent told The Huffington post the policy was made because the students are “all of us in the community,” adding that he was not aware of any other school district in California that has such a policy.
Jefferson High was founded in 1892 and is located in Fremantia, a small farming community that borders the San Joaquin Valley.
The school has a large African American population.
The district is also home to a number of colleges and universities.
It has been criticized by some for the school district’s “white nationalist” stance.
