Video: Student Attacked in Oklahoma High School for Wearing MAGA Hat

An underage student was attacked by an 18-year-old student in the hallway at Santa Fe High School in Edmond, Oklahoma, Monday for wearing a red Make America Great Again hat and for carrying a Trump 2020 flag.

Video of the attack was posted to Facebook. A white student is seen being confronted by a black student who demands he take off the MAGA hat or he will “rip it off”. When the white student tries to sidestep the black student and walk away, the black student grabs the Trump flag and knocks the MAGA hat off the white student. Another white student non-violently intervenes and the black student takes the Trump flag and tosses it on the ground. The black student is heard yelling at the white student, “Take that shit off, nigger! Take that shit off!”

The video of the incident ends without further violence as the black student is seen walking away.

Theresa Pool White posted the video to Facebook Monday evening with this message:

“This is my friends son. Such a shame to see our children being publicly bullied for their beliefs!!

“Outrageous! I’m not posting this for the political side of things, but for the cultural clash we have amongst our own people—Americans. It is having an affect on people of all ages—even children. This video was shot today at Sante Fe High School in Edmond, Oklahoma. Is this what we have become? Is this what you want to see more of—or worse?

“Simply put, we lack the understanding and respect of other people’s values. Until such time there is a cultural transformation, we will be at war with one another.


“Share share share and let’s make other folks aware of what is going on inside our schools here in America!!! I don’t care what political side you stand with, this is just WRONG”

The Enid News & Eagle reported on the attack.

A Monday altercation between two Edmond Santa Fe students has resulted in a ticket of summons being issued to one of the male students involved in the recent dispute, according to police. A video of the daytime incident was sent to The Edmond Sun.

Kenneth Dewayne Jones, 18, is named on the municipal court summons on an offense of assault and battery. Jones has not been formally charged.

The video shows an 18-year-old African-American male and a white underage male involved in the incident, Edmond Police spokeswoman Jenny Wagnon said. The underage student was wearing a red hat stating “Make America Great Again” and carrying a banner.

“Take it off or I’ll rip it off … do you want me to rip it off?” is heard as the 18-year-old student confronts the underage student in the video conversation, along with other name-calling.

Note: The News & Eagle also reported the wearing of the hat was part of a school fundraiser where students are allowed an exemption to the dress code by making a donation so they can wear a hat in school for the day.
