BOURBON COUNTY, Ky. (WTVQ) — The Bourbon County school district is investigating a claim that a middle school girls’ basketball player yelled a racial slur to an opposing player.
Scott County parent Suzie Owens posted on Facebook that the Bourbon County player yelled to her daughter….”you aren’t that good, you should go back to picking cotton.”
Owens says that’s taught behavior.
She says it’s unacceptable but hopes something good comes out of it – positive change and accountability.
The school district says disciplinary action will be taken if the claim proves to be true.
