US high school investigating student's 'racist' yearbook photo with photoshopped image of Martin Luther King Jr
A doctoral photo of a student who Martin Luther King stands together, and a message related to a racist arc was somehow included in the Georgia High School yearbook, to the confusion and horror of the school's staff.
The photo shows a student standing next to a smiling Martin Luther King Jr., who has been provided with a Photoshop and whose hand lies on the student's shoulder. The student is holding a folder with a piece of paper that says “Official n-word Pass”.
According to WSB-TV 2 Atlanta, the headmaster sent a letter apologizing to the parents that the picture had made it into the yearbook.
The headmaster said the school was determined to determine how the photo was included in the yearbook.
"This is unacceptable and we are currently investigating who submitted this photo and how our processes did not resolve it prior to printing," said headmaster Kerensa Wing in the letter.

According to the school, the photo was presented to the employees of the yearbook instead of a traditional school photo and apparently not rejected by the editors.
"Since these photos were not available, the yearbook company replaced these pages with submitted senior selfies," said Ms. Wing.
One of the graduates, Aaliyah Williams, said she was excited to pick up her yearbook, but was dismayed when she saw the photo.
"I'm looking forward to the yearbook. I see all the exciting memories and I open the book and I see it. And it's like, wow! It hurts me to the core," said Ms. Williams. "From everything right now happens, that shouldn't be a joke. It shouldn't be a joke now. It is not something to play with. "
The photo comes when the nation is involved in the third week of George Floyd's protests aimed at curbing systemic racism and police brutality.
The student's mother went to Facebook to express her displeasure and her post went viral.
"In her last year she had enough to do. I am offended. I am offended only because of who allowed you to come out? Where was your committee? I understand that there are students on the committee, but there are adults and teachers in Committee, "said Kavanti White, the student's parent." When I looked at it, I thought, "Oh my god. That's real?" It's like people take the time to think it is a joke."
The school has not yet determined whether the student in the photo submitted the treated photo or whether the photo was later changed without the student's knowledge or consent.
On Thursday, Ms. Wing sent a second letter informing the parents that the yearbooks had been recalled and reprinted without the picture.
“As a first step in rebuilding this trust, we will print new revised yearbooks and replace this photo. Although we were initially offered other options, we decided that this was the right one. As a result, we are calling for an immediate recall of ALL distributed yearbooks for 2020, ”Ms. Wing said in the letter.
"We will also review all of our yearbook processes - from submitting the photos to final proofing - to ensure that this does not happen again."
