A high school in New Jersey held diversity training after officials learned that at least two students attended a Halloween party dressed as a slave in blackface and a slave owner. What the actual fuck.

According to the New Jersey Echoes-Sentinel, an image was circulating on social media that depicted a “Watchung Hills senior in blackface makeup and a black wig. Joining him in the photo is another Watchung Hills student brandishing a whip and wearing a cowboy hat.”
