Abner, 16, and James, 17, attend Limestone High. Abner emigrated from Cuba just three years ago. He is black and speaks with a Hispanic accent. Last Friday, after school, James became upset when he saw Abner speaking alone to his girlfriend. James called Abner a racist word. This enraged Abner, who then punched James in the mouth. A teacher was able to quickly stop the fight. James’ mouth was bleeding and Abner was not injured.
