Description

Illinois School District Says Being Multiracial Not Okay Brandon Lehman is a striking 7-year-old with an afro, long eyelashes, green eyes and skin the color of caramel. He is white, like his father, and black, like his mother. But in Champaign Community Unit School District 4, he can't be both. Officials infuriated his parents by sending a letter last year saying they must identify Brandon on school paperwork by only one race or ethnicity.
