Massachusetts school apologizes after serving fried chicken to celebrate the start of Black History Month


A Massachusetts school has issued an apology after deciding to offer fried chicken for lunch to celebrate the start of Black History Month. Xaverian Brothers High School became the center for controversy earlier this week after students say the school announced the lunchtime meal during the morning announcement. Administrators at the private school alleges the concept came from a Black cafeteria worker. They said it was an attempt to educate students about Black history and culture.

“They could have chosen a different part of African cuisine,” senior Liam Baker said. “A lot of kids have taken the stance of that it was a mistake but there wasn’t malintent. They could have just approached it differently.”

The high school has made headlines for a few months when the school launched an investigation into an verbal harasment of a racist and sexual nature at a playoff football game according to Boston 7 News.

“It’s bad that it’s reemerging like that,” Baker added. The school’s principal, Dr. Jacob Conca, says the message was poorly communicated.

“We are deeply troubled and disheartened by our failure in this instance and take full responsibility for it,” Conca said in a statement. “I offer my sincere apologies for the harm that our actions may have caused.”

Administrators also said steps are being taken to learn from the mistake.
