ALMA (KFSM) -- Friday night (Nov. 11), Alma hosted a high school football game against Blytheville High School. After the game, a few students reported some Alma students were waving Donald Trump poster heads and that they heard racial slurs some Blytheville students believe were directed toward them.
Richard Atwill, the superintendent of Blytheville Public Schools explained, "I was approached by a group of parents who were at the game on the Blytheville side and they said that a student section from Alma was chanting, "(expletive), go home."
Meanwhile, the superintendent at Alma Public Schools says, "we've investigated (the matter) every way we know to and we've come up with nothing and nobody."
Alma High School is predominantly white. The visiting team, Blytheville High School, is predominantly African-American.
A parent from Blytheville said, "They felt very threatened by it. They felt it wasn't good sportsmanship (and) they felt like there were some racial undertones to that."
Neither superintendent can say with complete certainty what happened -- only what they believe or have been told through their investigations.
"I think this was a misinterpretation and a misunderstanding by people in a different community across the state that don't really know us," Woolly said.
The investigations will continue from both sides.
Atwill remarked, "we've tried to get information from all the people we could who were present."
In the meantime, measures are being taken to diffuse what is a tense situation.
"What do we need to do to make sure this kind of stuff never happens again?" asked Woolly before answering, "Just talking with students and making sure they understand (the situation)."
