Kansas City school district cancels all events due to racial slurs

From the Associated Press:

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — The Kansas City School District has canceled all remaining sporting events in 2016 with a nearby school district after students from one of the district’s schools reported being taunted with racial slurs.

The school district announced Thursday that Lincoln College Preparatory Academy reported fans from Lone Jack yelled inappropriate and racial slurs during a girls soccer game last week.

Lone Jack officials said an investigation that included interviewing coaches, students, fans and game supervisors found no evidence of anyone using racial slurs at the game. The district, about 25 miles southeast of Kansas City, said it was saddened that someone felt uncomfortable at an event it hosted.

In response, Kansas City decided to cancel all sporting events with Lone Jack through this calendar year.
