A Connecticut high schooler was charged with racial harassment and breach of peace after making a racist Snapchat post of a Black student

 A 16-year-old Connecticut high schooler and arrested and charged after making a racist social media post against another Black student.

The unidentified Fairfield Warde High School student was charged with racial harassment and breach of peace for the offensive Snapchat post with an image of Jamar Medor calling him the N-word, WABC-TV reported.

The image obtained by the Daily Mail shows Medor in the classroom with a red circle around him. According to the report, the social media post also included another caption that read, "why is he not in chains?"

"I just had no words when I saw it. I was so confused," Medor told WABC-TV.

His mother, Judith Medor, told the news station that she wants the student to get expelled for creating the post. The student accused of making the post was given 10 days suspension, she told WABC-TV.

According to the Patch, a petition was created calling for the student to get expelled from Fairfield Warde High school. As of the time of publication, the petition has 29,807 signatures.

"Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) shouldn't have to encounter this type of racist harassment from other students in a predominantly white institution," the petition stated. "Fairfield Warde High School should take racism seriously, and the student who posted the racist comment should be expelled immediately."
