American Heritage School Boca Delray Suspends Game for Black Lives Matter Shirts Worn

A few weeks ago, a student at American Heritage School (Boca Delray) in Palm Beach, Florida posted a racial slur in a virtual class. The student that posted did not receive any disciplinary action from the school administration. 

In response to these racial slurs, two student-athletes Jordana Codio and Khadee Hession decided to wear Black Lives Matter T-shirts during their warmups. The Stallions were set to play against American Heritage (Plantation). 

When the high school noticed, they suspended the game from being played. 

Which left some WNBA players to stand in solidarity and continue being a role model for these young women.

Erica Wheeler, Guard for the Indiana Fever, made a statement on Instagram saying, “As role models to these young athletes we’re going to stand up with our future young stars.”

Natasha Cloud, Guard for the Washington Mystics, wrote on Instagram also saying “The administration that tried to silence these athletes by canceling games because of a BLM t-shirt should be dismissed. Institutional racism is alive and thriving still in our educational system.”

Also, Breanna Stewart, WNBA Champion and 2020 Finals MVP and Forward for the Seattle Storm, posted on Instagram saying “It’s not a political statement. It’s real life.”

No further updates have been made.
