  1. No blacks or latinos kids foult, it is their parents that dont teach them to respect people from other races. Latinos and Blacks should be united not fighting each other. Whites and rich people are just laughing to see this.

  2. This makes no sense! I would whoop my kid's arse because I raised them better than that.
    Instead of future leaders, We will have future inmates…SMH 🤦🙄

  3. Tolerance and compassion are taught by parents not teachers. Blaming the school for what is tolerated or even encouraged in a child's home life will never solve the problem. Perhaps the parents should meet and discuss why this is happening.

  4. Sorry parents. Don't blame it on the school system. I blame it on the parents teach your children to freaking behave better. These children are learning these anger issues from home. I know I experienced it as a parent. I made mistakes you parents need to own up to your mistakes and get your kids and f**** line. If you are leaving it up to the school system to teach your kids about this you are just being lazy parents.

  5. We used to rumble the Same way, if not worse 15 years ago, when I was in highschool. In school or after school, nothing changed.
    . But high school was high school.. all my friends n even people we rumbled with all grown now… it was the Hispanics and blacks usually.. but we would rumble with other Chicano groups too… this kind of stuff wont go away. It starts at home. So maybe the place to fix it. Would be to start there… but we settled issues by fighting it's in our nature to fight win or lose n walk away too.. better than someone quiet or unstable shooting up innocents.. there was a time n place..

  6. These stupid parents need to stop blaming the school it’s the bad parenting that has those dumb ass kids fighting you need to learn to discipline you’re dam kids stop blaming the school and learn to be a good parent and teenagers why fight you just have a bad record that will effect you’re future dumb ass kids these days 🤦🏻‍♂️

  7. It’s sad but schools have done this for 20 years or more I went to jordan high school and my freshman year their was a riot between blacks and Mexicans not a suprised even 15 years ago it was the same thing at Jordan high school so they need to do something about it but it will continue in the future if it hasn’t stopped by now .

  8. This has been going on since I went there in 06 the school has this race ceremony where every race brings up something that represents they race . But it always leads up to fights and death . We been told the teachers they shouldn’t allow these ceremony because of the race war against black and Mexicans against whites against athletes. I went here in 06 our fights was so bad Jordan school jumped in also

  9. ok thats ma school nd all that yall sayin is dumb. All these kids juss petty nd thats, that yall think juss bc yall say dont fight that mean we aint gonna fight well guess what we are….. yall think we juss gonna let all these latinos, mexicans puch us around? think again…… Nd i honestly think we should all come together we all faced rasicm together. We all really aint that different. But ong if yall jumpin people stop that shii aint coo

  10. Where’s Randy when you need him like the west campus needs him for reals though I’m a junior at the senior campus which btw Randy should be in both campuses because the staffs didn’t discipline them hard when that big ass race riot happened in the west campus which happened when I was a sophomore from 2018-2019 though besides that we live in a multicultural country in a town in California which has a lot of Latinos but in the school idk what race caused the massive riot my opinion is that one of the races got triggered because there are more of that kind of race than them also I know this comment will have a lot of hate and shit

  11. Yup, this been going on since I was in high school there over 10 years now. The reason why this happens is because paramount HS. Gets students from long beach. And they try to control the campus. Paramount is a Hispanic city.

  12. Obviously the parents that are concerned aren’t the ones that are messing up. Not all parents and students are fighting I’m sure that the parents of the kids that were fighting were hidden under a rock crack rock I mean

  13. That’s a damn shame. Really!!! there was never any blacks on Mexican back in my days going to that school. These kids need a good ass kicking from their parents and the school should be trying to figure out how to stop all this crap.

  14. The fact that it’s only black parents there concerned about the fact… but it’s stupid jokes going around about parenting… I guess🙄🙄🙄

  15. Telling them the rules is not going to help. The School Board needs to implement racial desensitization by educating the students about each other's culture and races. Humans are afraid of what they do not understand.

  16. Lmaooo this brings back memories! 20+ years ago when i was in middle school in Texas, us black kids and the mexican kids would have "wars" like this. I remember the days before we were officially "at war" me and my mexican friends would be like "love you, but you know we cant hang out after tomorrow. See you after the war!" 😂😂😂😂😂 crazy times, but its just what kids/humans do. We will always find SOMETHING to group together and fight about
