Micah Street, a black student at Wake Forest High School in North Carolina, was suspended from school after an altercation between him and a white student on Friday, March 3. Video of the incident was shared on Instagram by user Tyler Goodell who said his friend Micah was defending himself from racist abuse, according to the News & Observer.

The video starts with the white student already on the floor and escalates toward the end when a teacher steps in, seemingly yelling at Street for getting physical with the student. The teacher responds in a way that is dismissive of Micah’s concern, noting that the white student only “used words.” Based on the video, it sounds as though the white student calls Micah a “black piece of sh*t.”

Street told CBS North Carolina that the altercation happened as a result of the other student’s racist remarks over the last few months. He said he lost his temper after being threatened by the other student. Street was originally suspended from school for ten days, but it was later reduced to five.

Students at the school chanted and protested in support of Micah on Monday, with calls to “Bring Micah back.”

His mother told CBS, “How am I going to send my son back to Wake Forest is what I want to know…because I’m sending him back to the shooting range is what I’m doing. So I’m totally clueless I don’t know what to do.”

John Oliver explains how Dems can bring the pain to Mitch McConnell — even if he wins re-election

"Last Week Tonight" host John Oliver returned to his Sunday show, fresh off of an Emmy win, to explain how the United States got so incredibly f*cked up.

Oliver began by remembering Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg and noting that her seat will be taken over by a far-right conservative justice who will unmake healthcare, reproductive freedom, LGBTQ rights and more things Americans have indicated they want.

He played a clip of Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT) claiming that America is a "center-right" country, which Oliver called outright "bullsh*t." Not only do Americans overwhelming support reproductive freedom, they also support LGBTQ equality. At the same time, Americans also believe, overwhelmingly, that President Donald Trump shouldn't be allowed to appoint the next justice.

Former Army prosecutor explains why Trump will ‘get laughed out of court’ if he tries to steal the election

Democrats are still panicking about the plots that President Donald Trump and the Republican Party seem to be cooking up to circumvent the people's vote in November.

Last week's shocking piece in The Atlantic detailed how electors in Pennsylvania could be manipulated to deliver Trump the vote despite ballots to the contrary. After President George W. Bush's campaign convincing the Supreme Court to stop Florida from counting the 2000 election ballots, there is a fear that Trump too could manipulate the courts to get his Supreme Court justices to deliver him a win.
