SALINE, MI — A Michigan parent interrupted a school board meeting with a racist remark, while another parent was talking about how racism at the school was affecting his child.
Adrian Iraola, who is Latino, had a microphone and was sharing a story about his son crying himself to sleep because of the racial abuse he was being forced to endure at his school.
Iraola was mid-sentence when a man seated behind him spoke up.
“Then why didn’t you stay in Mexico?” the man, later identified as Tom Burtell, said.
The interjection caused audible gasps and looks of shock from other parents in the room.

A sixth-grade student shot and killed a teacher and wounded several classmates before killing himself inside an elementary school Friday morning in northern Mexico, authorities said.

The shooting happened in Torreón, a large city in the state of Coahuila.
Authorities said five students and a gym teacher were taken to the hospital with gunshot wounds, but their condition was not immediately known.
