A North Carolina school district is canceling a Hamlet high school’s yearbook after administrators noticed several senior quotes, including a President Trump campaign slogan, that were deemed inappropriate.

“‘Build that Wall’ - Donald Trump,” one female student’s quote read, according to a photo of the yearbook published by The News & Observer.

School district spokeswoman Ashley-Michelle Thublin said it was that quote and several others that make it into the Richmond Early College High School yearbook that were considered too controversial, The Associated Press reported.

A photo of the “build that wall” quote circulated on social media, with some users accusing it of being racist and offensive to minority students.


  1. Just one more reason why we're looking to leave the state...

    1. There's no where to go. I was asking a Brit the other day: Just where are Anglo whites to go?

      They assume America and Canada are choice destinations. And of course Australia and NZ, but those two are not so wonderful as people think.

      I might move to Alaska one day - best chance at seceding. If enough of us moved up there, we could get free. And then maybe that'd improve the chances of the US South.

      Conservatives want to build for the long term. You can't do that in the US. There is no long term here.

    2. There is no long term here.

      The far east, I believe.
