MINNEAPOLIS — A Black student at a predominantly white high school outside of Minneapolis has filed a federal class action lawsuit against her school for supporting an annual “wigger day” celebration.

Quera Pruitt, who attends Red Wing High School, claims that the school was indifferent to the harm this day did to their Black student base.

“Wigger is a pejorative slang term for a white person who emulates the mannerisms, language and fashions associated with African-American culture,” the complaint states.

Court House News reports:

“The students who participated in Wigger or Wangsta day wore clothes that, from their perspective, mimicked Black culture. These costumes included oversized sports jerseys, low-slung pants, baseball hats cocked to the side and ‘doo rags’ on their heads. Some of the students displayed gang signs.

“Principal Borgen was aware that the Wednesday of Homecoming Week had historically been referred to among the students as ‘Wednesday Wigger Day.’

“Indeed, September 30, 2009, was not the first time the students at Red Wing High School held Wigger or Wangsta Day. School officials acknowledge that ‘Wednesday Wigger Day’ had occurred in at least the ‘last couple of years’ prior to September 30, 2009
