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.”

Danny Trejo is always there for his community no matter what. This year is no different. Covid has made life really hard for millions of families and we have yet to get through the worst of it.

Danny Trejo teamed up with a nonprofit to donate meals to the families of frontline workers.

We all know Trejo as Machete but we also all know him as one of the most sincere and active community member. He is always there to help his neighbors and Latinos no matter what. That is exactly what he did this weekend to make sure that everyone was taken care of because of Covid. The virus has made life very hard for people and Trejo just wants to make sure that everything is taken care of, especially food.

Trejo joined The Everest Foundation and LA County Supervisor Hilda Solis.

Trejo is more than an actor. He is a restaurateur with multiple eateries around Los Angeles. The actor owns Trejo’s Cantina, Trejo’s Tacos, and Trejo’s Donuts and Coffee. With his ability to feed, Trejo used his restaurant to give a small amount of relief to some of the people who need it most right now. After months of working through Covid, some frontline workers were given a temporary lifeline from Trejo in the form of food.

The “Bibles and Tacos” event gave food to more than 800 families.

During this difficult time, we want to give thanks to the East L.A. Community, especially our front-line workers that surround that facility, by spreading some joy this holiday season,” Dr. Michael Everest told NBC Los Angeles. “We are grateful to be working with Trejo’s Tacos to, once again, give back to such an important community.”

The Everest Foundation is dedicated to helping provide opportunities “for the advancement of innovation in medical education and cutting-edge medical research.” The foundation helps to break down the barriers to higher education and medical training that many face when coming from minority communities.

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.
