The fight, which involved mainly Latino and black students, got so out of hand that police, faculty and even some students jumped in to break up the brawl.


In response to the fight, SHS officials decided to hold a safety meeting to address the concerns of parents.

Most of the parents were concerned about the safety of their children.


It appears school officials were talking at, not to, the crowd, so Danny Trejo stood up and shook things up.

He told officials they need to do less talking and more listening. “You’re not listening to them. They’ll come up here and tell you,” Trejo, who has no children at the school, told the officials. “That’s who we should be talking to. Parents and them.”


The students and parents erupted in applause.

This isn’t the first time that Trejo has taken a stand for his community. In 2015, Trejo organized a community event aimed at helping restore a business that had been tagged and damaged.


Eventually, a few students got a chance to speak. This student criticized what the hyped-up media coverage of what she called a “5-minute fight.”

“They’re making Sylmar look like a bad school,” she said. The student also rebuked the claim that 12 police officers showed up to the scene, telling the crowd that there are only two officers on campus.


But Trejo had more words for both the administration and the police force that work in the community.

“I’m so fed up! I’m sorry I know you guys are doing such a good job,” Trejo told the officials at the meeting while looking at a police officer. “But you know what? You’ve got your heads in the sand. You have a black/brown situation…you either got to let everybody go or arrest a couple of people.”

VIDEO: Sacramento Karen Punched In Face For Calling Woman N-Word

@kenion_d / Twitter

Another day, another viral video on social media of a racist person getting confronted. This time, a white woman in Sacramento got punched by a Black woman after calling her the N-word.

Another Karen is going viral after calling a Black woman the N-word. *Warning: Strong Language*

Social media has proven to be the best tool to catch these racist incidents as they happen. There have been several videos to be posted recently. Tbh, it seems that the videos are much more common after some people were forced to spend time at home away from people. That racism seems to have just been waiting to come out.

Like any other video on social media, people have their own opinions.

Most people on the Internet are siding with the woman who threw the punches. The country is having a reckoning moment with racism. Protesters have been marching in major cities demanding police reform, which is happening. With emotions running high, these examples of racial tensions exploding are indicative of the place the country is in.

Across the board, people agree the violence is wrong but people of color are finding it hard to totally disavow what happened.

Hate crimes have significantly increased since President Trump took office. The FBI has reported an increase in hate crimes against several minority groups across the country during Trump’s time in office. This increase comes after hate groups grew at alarming rates during the Obama administration in response to Barack Obama’s victory.

People are tired of being subjected to bigoted and dangerous rhetoric. The temperament of the American people went from excusing this behavior to a majority of Americans seeking to become anti-racist.

Yet, people are still coming with jokes on social media.

According to TMZ, the police responded to a call at the convenience store and the white woman was being treated for minor injuries. She originally did not want to press charges but changed her mind. TMZ reports that the Sacramento Police Department claims the Black woman in the video has not been arrested yet her husband claims she has.

A Fight Broke Out In A Florida Home Depot Parking Lot And You Can See The Coronavirus Spreading

A Fight Broke Out In A Florida Home Depot Parking Lot And You Can See The Coronavirus Spreading

@WhiskeyRiff / Twitter

There is one thing that will always deliver, even during a pandemic: fights. Even while the world is on lockdown and a virus is spreading, people can still find a way to get into a fight. This fight comes to you from a Home Depot in Florida.

A fight broke out at a Home Depot parking lot in Florida.

The fight took place at a Home Depot in Tampa and the fight itself is wild. Four men are in a melee and the more you watch it, the wilder it gets. First, you notice the wildly swinging paint cans. Paint is flying and you are all wondering how in the world the people hit with the paint cans are still standing. Then you realize that the pickup truck is in the splash zone. Next thing you know, one of the men is going after someone with a shovel. Yes. A shovel that you use to dig holes with. It truly is a wild ride and it has left the Internet wanting answers. Most of all, why?

If you come across it with no warning on Twitter, the video is a lot to process.

How did this fight start? Who threw the first punch? What is there to fight over in Home Depot? There are so many questions watching this fight. It can’t be possible that the best way for this fight to go off includes paint flying everywhere.

The guy with the shovel is the sleeper in this fight.

Everything is already so crazy that you aren’t sure what to take in first. Then, out of nowhere, a shovel rises straight into the air and all of your focus goes right to it. The man slams it down hard and it isn’t clear if he hit his intended target.

Some people, while not surprised, are still just done with Florida right now.

Florida has this reputation to always draw attention to itself and never for the right reasons. This fight in the time of Covid-19 is just the latest iteration of the Florida we have come to know. From politics to bizarre moments, Florida is a frontrunner in the race to be the wildest state.

On the other side, there are people who literally cannot wait until something like this comes out of Florida.

Social media is a crazy world. There are things happening on there that you would never believe would actually happen. Yet, social media is there to take the craziness of the world and serve it right up to you on a silver platter.
