Community responds following racist comments in Saline Area Schools

In what has since become a viral internet video, one man asked a Latinx parent, who is the owner of Ann Arbor restaurant Chela’s, at a Saline Area Schools community meeting why he had come to the United States instead of “stay(ing) in Mexico.”

Daily reporters Julia Rubin, Brayden Hirsch and Emma Ruberg talked to students and Saline Area community members on the impact and implications of this incident and other conversations surrounding diversity, equity and inclusion in the district.
