Parents call Lee’s Summit track coach’s comments derogatory, demand resignation | fox4kc.com





The
parents say their daughters want to quit the track team because the
kids overheard their white head coach tell the assistant black coach
that she’s only relatable to the black students because she’s black.




“There’s not room for racism. We live in a racially diverse community, and there’s no room for that,” Heather Hays said.




The
girls raised their hands on Monday, saying that last Friday their head
coach told them the only reason they relate to the black coach is
because she’s black.




“On the track team we relate to her because she’s a good coach. When
she said that a Caucasian student says I relate to her too, what does
that say about me?” Breanna May said.




The Lee’s Summit School District says officials have been made aware
of concerns from parents and they are investigating those concerns.




“I think she crossed the line,” said Kim Smith.




Parents say the coach should step down.
