Moving students after racist threats was wrong decision

The article on the front page of The Sunday Herald was unbelievable as it is apparent children are being raised by their parents to kill us people of color (“’Enough is enough,’ Marysville father says of racist threats,” The Herald, April 4).

I am a member of the Tulalip Tribes and have lived on our reservation all of my life and couldn’t believe what I was reading in the paper that the officials of our schools merely moved the children that made these threats to a different school. The school board or principal had to make this decision and it is apparent they need to be educated on how to handle this type of case as I am sure the other school they were moved to may have minorities at that school as well.

What did the parents of the children say about what their children are doing as they are the ones who raised the kids and kids get their choice of words from their parents!

Due to our last president’s actions, who we all know is a racist and believes America should only consist of people who are not of color and it has now gotten to a point where the Republicans are trying to have all states make changes in the voting for congressional positions so minorities aren’t qualified to vote.

We have enough problems with the deaths of so many of our family members due to the covid-19 virus and we don’t know when this will end.
