Southern California school district apologizes after basketball players threw tortillas at the other team


It marks the third incident condemned as racist in San Diego County high school sports in recent years. For Coronado, the incident comes as its school district — which serves predominately white students — examines how to root out racism in its schools.


“Unfortunately a community member brought tortillas and distributed them which was unacceptable and racist in nature,” he said Saturday night on Twitter. “I do not condone this behavior. Coronado High School does not condone this behavior and is already taking appropriate action.”
