      I'm not sure I completely agree with....As a young woman of color she will face higher hurdles than a similar white male but I think this is more "Zero Tolerance" in action than racism, conscious at least.......

       look at the recent case of the HS senior skeet shooter, a white kid,  who screwed up and left his shotgun in his truck and drove to school....didn't want to be late so he called his mom to come pick it up and solve the problem....some school official overheard him talking to moms and called the cops and Cory ended up expelled and facing charges for trying to do the right thing and get to class while also solving the forgotten shotgun...Just like Kiera's case, he was an honor student and even an Eagle Scout for Ghu's sake......

      Zero tolerance is always a travesty of justice when applied across the board with no nuance......
