ROCKINGHAM, NC (AP) – A North Carolina school district has confiscated yearbooks at one high school after officials saw a senior’s quote that read, “Build the Wall.”

Local media reported that yearbooks distributed at the Richmond Early College High School near Rockingham were recalled because some senior quotes were considered controversial.

School district spokeswoman Ashley-Michelle Thublin said school and district officials found several quotes were inappropriate. She said that included the “Build the Wall” comment that became one of President Donald Trump’s campaign slogans last year.

That slogan has been criticized on social media by some students and others who called it racist and hurtful to classmates, some of whom are minorities.

Thublin said none of the students are being disciplined. It’s too late to get the books reprinted so students are being refunded.

    Guess that Muslim ban isn’t so bad now that they are targeting kids.

      As more and more of the children of the left wing nut-buckets get robbed, raped and murdered by illegal immigrants, they’ll get out there and start building the wall themselves! Well…that sounds good, but would never happen. Snowflakes won’t allow their pasty white, weak hands to get soiled. They’re only good for wringing, sweating, holding stupid signs, making fists and the middle finger salute.

    Not cool, the school had plenty of time to review these quotes, and play PC Police, it takes weeks to prepare a yearbook. Give the kids back there books and if someone wants a refund, give it to them. Don’t play YEARBOOK POLICE after the fact.

    building a wall and ending illegal immigration is not racist or hurtful, it is a very necessary step to ensure the success and safety of our country, there are some school board members that need to be unemployed ASAP!
