A pro-Black Lives Matter cartoon made available to students at a Florida school district outraged some parents, who claimed the district was trying to indoctrinate students with a left-wing agenda.
The controversial “Black Lives Matter Protests” cartoon has since been pulled by the Sarasota County district.
It was viewable through the district’s “BrainPOP” site. BrainPOP, a third-party vendor, creates instructional videos for a variety of subjects, the Sarasota Herald-Tribune reported.
In the video, a character explains the history of Black Lives Matter and encourages students to join protests for police reform. The character commends the protests for influencing the Minneapolis City Council to reform its police department.
Before a contentious meeting Tuesday night, School Board Member Bridget Ziegler wrote on Facebook that parents had made her aware of the video and that she had asked Superintendent Brennan Asplen to look into the matter.
