A Utah mother is suing a school bus driver who she says intentionally dragged her son. She claims the bus driver did it because he’s racist.
The 14-year-old’s backpack gets stuck in the doors as he exits. The bus starts moving, dragging him for several feet. In a civil rights lawsuit, the teen’s mother claims he was targeted because he is biracial.
“I was glad he didn’t kill him. I was glad he didn’t go under the wheels,” said the boy’s mother. The driver was asked if he considered himself to be racist and he said, “Not at all. Look at my dog. He’s as black as can be.”
The driver says he didn’t see the boy and would have stopped if he did. The school district terminated the driver. They said that they take any claims of racial discrimination seriously.
