Wednesday, March 27, 2024 – Confronting persistent racism in North Dakota high school sports

Minot Public Schools issued a public apology over conduct of fans at a basketball tournament this month. The action comes after reports of “potentially discriminatory conduct” targeting Native players. It’s one in a series of complaints about racially insensitive actions. The U.S. Department of Education’s Office for Civil Rights is investigating. Native American advocates successfully pushed the state School Activities Association to adopt a zero tolerance policy for racially insensitive behavior by fans.
