So I'm a 17 year old high school senior. I was a member of the boy's swim team for 4 years and had swam competitively for 10. I'm am an average student and rarely find myself in trouble, yet I'm am friendly with my house-master and all of my teachers. For the purpose of this story I am also white(if my name didn't give it away). About 4 weeks ago near the end of the day I was called down to the office and my house-master, another house-master, and the Athletic Director were there waiting. The other house-master informed me that the lone black kid on the swim team was accusing me of hate crimes. I was extremely surprised to hear this and even more shocked to hear the accusations. He was accusing me of calling him ****** non-stop for the entire season(3 months), telling him my parents raised me to hate his kind, and drawing a noose on a piece of paper, putting it in his swim locker, and telling him there's a surprise for you after practice. Now, I was upset because the only thing that is true from that is saying ****** which happened once, when he stole my sunglasses and put them in a toilet bowl. What I admitted to was making black jokes during times when this kid would be making jokes at everyone else on the team. He would make fun of my weight, call me a faggot, make fun of the Asians on the team, make fun of anything he could. He was the main instigator of the team. No one on the team made fun of each other to hurt ones feeling but just to get a laugh and pass the time and everyone had a understanding of this. This kid also had not swam in any meets all year because he hadn't passed a class the entire year to this point(he's a freshman). Plus all the kids I know dislike him and all the teachers I know have a problem with him. So now the kid lied about my actions, about knowing me(saying I never talked to him only to call him ******), and his own actions(saying he never did anything wrong). I said what I did and they called my dad in and told him what they told me, saying I'm facing being arrested and 2 weeks suspension. After they did their investigation they gave me 3 days in-school suspension, kicked me off the swim team, sensitivity training*slow jerk*, and I had to apologize. I took my punishment because I wanted it all to be over. Last week I had the suspensions and training and I wrote the letter of apology last night. I then hear from my house-master that his parents aren't happy with the punishment and want to try and pursue legal action. Then I hear from one of my teachers that this isn't the first time his family has tried this, and his parents are actually crack addicts and must be looking for money. And if you had any doubts about the black kid he was arrested Friday for selling weed at school....this kinda fucked up my month.
