Although this didn't happen in West Covina, it is an incident that affects all of us: A student thought it "funny" to replace the names of people in the Black Student Union at Charter Oak High School in Covina with names like "Tay Tay Shaniqua," etc. in the yearbook.

What are these parents teaching their children, and how did this not get caught before the yearbooks were printed? The whole thing is vile and I hope the student responsible gets expelled and this incident is a permanent mark on his or her record. In fact, it should be considered as a form of vandalism and the student should be charged with defacing private property. Yearbooks are worth a lot of money. He or she should also be forced to apologize to each and every student hurt by this, including the students in the BSU and the yearbook staff who worked hard all year to have a product of which they could be proud.

We should all be outraged! Let's call for action!

Charter Oak High School is located at:
