Attαcks at Digital Harbor High School in Baltimore have caused parents, authorities and Digital Harbor High School.jpgschool officials to come together with hopes of calming tensions.

Some students at the school say they fear that unresolved issues will trigger another clash between Latinos and blacks at the school.

CBS Baltimore reports that school officials invited parents to meet with police in order to address parent’s safety concerns.

“There were some problems between students, and that’s what started everything,” said Jose Dominguez, student.

He went on to describe how the tension is almost palpable and has students at the school concerned.

“It’s like segregation. Hispanic kids stay on one side. The African Americans stay on the other,” student Sevi Chaplin said. “They’ve been breaking out into fιghts, riοts, everything else.”

The feud that exists between African-American and Latino students only intensified after the mυrder of 15-year-old former student Oscar Torres.

Parent Kisha Jackson admitted keeping her child out of school due to the tensions.

“I didn’t send mine back Monday or Tuesday, yesterday or today. No, I didn’t,” she said.

Even political leaders in the city are addressing the issue.

“You have to confront it. You can’t pretend that it doesn’t exist,” said Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake.

If this story sounds familiar, it’s probably because a similar situation has been unfolding at a Chicago high school.

As Your Black World reported, six students at Streamwood High School in Chicago were recently arrested after police were called to breαk up a racially motivated fιght.

“It was at least 40 kids fighting, then it travelled all the way up to the 2nd floor. They fought inside the offices,” said student Deshawn Cavin, according to CBS Chicago.

“The African-Americans and the Hispanics, they were just attαcking each other today,” said student Sarah Sullivan.

  1. The problem is every last one of the children who was fighting has no idea what's the real world is. They want to hate on each other for what, there are enough white people out there hate on African Americans and Latinos. They grow up and try getting a job or going to college or joining the military. I have seen it all and living here in the United States as an African American better yet a minority, life has been easy at all dealing with racism.

  2. Don't you know by now that latino people hate black folks. Stand up for your rights black folks fight back. Because if you don't they will try to pimp you like a hoe. Don't ever forget that Malcom X son was killed by mexicans and his family never got justice for his killing.

  3. Fight black kids because you are fighting for your life.

  4. When did this city become having such a large population of Hispanics or Latino/Latinas?

    Population, 2013 estimate 5,928,814

    Black or African American 30% = 1778644.2 (1,778,644.2)
    Hispanic or Latino, percent 8.7%=515806.818 (515, 806.8)

    They Blacks out number Hispanics by an estimated 50% so do they realize the similarity of each background especially Puerto Ricans and other African mixed ethnicities?

  5. Brown and black people have many of the same problems in life. Plus a lot of black people are part Hispanic. Instead of all of this fighting both groups could make some headway if they united instead of fighting.

  6. Every time Latinos move into an area they start gang wars to carve out their territory. It happens in every city.!

  7. just like Pinky & the brain we will rule the World, that is way that Concord & Destroyed,

  8. So Stop damu's. They do this to the people throw out the World. Against each other. SO STOP "Black Indians"

  9. Compton etc. They want the western Hemisphere back, so watch your BACK.

  10. Blacks are always fooled that Latinos have your best interest at heart. Why should day?? I don't care if your Afro-Caribe and speak Spanish, remember your still speaking a European language. Most look at you as a Slave and they want their land back. The Whiter/Lighter they are the more we most be on guard. When they get around Whites they change just like the weather. We Blacks must create a Nation of our OWN before we become the hunted again. They will be 30% of the U.S. population by 2050 and I keep telling Black folks you better watch your BACK. Your friend Hector/Chico will have Political POWER over you very soon and Obama is their blueprint. We've just open the Pandora's box for non-White Presidents. Peace!

  11. Well, I am glad to see that Black people are starting to see the truth. The African Diaspora is a lie. People are people and the years of change have differentiated all groups.

    Spanish speaking people whether, hispanics, puerto ricans, mexicans etc. are not black because they dont share our ancestry and heritage.

    If kinships are formed, then that is different. But to assume that skin color or some common African connection that we all share is a marker or identifier is just foolish.

    We should focus on our problems and our country. Mr. Jesse L. Jackson really messed black people up with this “Minority Status” thing. We empowered these immigrants only to receive hate from them.

    But know this, some spanish-speaking people think that they are white and want to be white, so they will do anything to satisfy white people. They distance themselves from black people hoping that white people will accept them. But there are others who just want to live in America and be happy contributors.

    So why don’t we just wake up and get over this Africa mess.

  12. The subsequent time I read a weblog, I hope that it doesnt disappoint me as a good deal as this 1. I mean, I know it was my option to read, but I truly thought youd have something attention-grabbing to say. All I hear is a bunch of whining about something which you possibly can repair need to you werent too busy on the lookout for attention.

  13. hi!,I like your writing so a lot! share we communicate far more about your write-up on AOL? I need an expert on this area to solve my problem. Maybe that
