An elementary school student received an overwhelming amount of support after he was the target of racial slurs by a group of white teenagers.
According to Fox13, the incident happened last Oct. 5 when Mateus Romualdo was walking home from Viewmont Elementary School. The student, who lives just a mile from his school, came into contact with a group of white teens who drove by spewing racial slurs. Frightened, he called his mother to tell her what happened. “He felt very terrified and actually told me he thought the kids were going to shoot him,” his mother Heather Romauldo said.
Then something amazing happened...although it was hard to track the culprits down, Romauldo decided to follow up with a different tactic by encouraging the community to take a stand against racism and ignorance.
