A group of White students at York Tech High School in Pennsylvania celebrated Donald Trump’s win on election night by returning to school the following day with a “Trump” poster and chants of “White power!” You can check out a short video of Trump’s New America below.

According to reports, those students have been suspended. York Mayor Kim Bracey also went to the school Thursday to discuss the situation. “While we all know people harbor their true feelings until they believe it is okay to act out, it appears that yesterday’s incident was isolated and the school is doing all they can to regain a sense of normalcy,” she said in a prepared statement. “I beg of the school personnel to keep the conversation and positive events that highlight our differences going.”

Students at the school say this sort of behavior had been going on long before Trump’s election night victory. “They have been calling me Mexican saying I need to get sent over the border, they whistle at me and my friends like we’re dogs, they call us ‘Papi,'” Eibreha Drayden, a student at York Tech, said.

As the #MeTooMovement continues to stay relevant around the world and the TimesUp campaign continues to grow, women are starting to speak out about making less money than their male co-stars.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Ross makes significantly less money than her black-ish co-star, Anthony Anderson, and now is fighting for equal pay.  Per the report, “Ellis Ross feels that if she isn’t brought up to Anderson’s level, she may opt to appear in fewer episodes to make up the disparity by guesting on another show.”

A source at ABC also suggested that a “new deal will significantly increase her compensation and cautioned that Anderson and Ellis Ross’ roles aren’t equal given that he has been attached to Black-ish from the start and is an executive producer.”

SIDE NOTE: That was also the argument when E! News host, Catt Sadler stepped down due to making less than Jason Kennedy. At the time, the network claimed Jason had other duties, which also included his contributions to the Today show.

Ross has yet to comment on the report, but if she does take a step back, this means the show will be more male dominated; after all, Zoe, played by Yara Shahidi, is now in college and has her own spinoff show, Grownish.
