Many words have been expended on social media, and no doubt in private conversations, regarding the “chanting” incident at Wilton High School during a football game on Nov. 11. For the few who are not aware, students — it appears a very small number, perhaps as few as two — chanted “build the wall” during a game against Danbury High School. Minorities make up about 12% of Wilton High School’s population, while they make up more than half Danbury’s student body.
The event has been discussed in school. Wilton High School has issued an apology to both Danbury High School and the Danbury community at large. Perhaps the feeling is Wilton should move on, but this is not an incident we can easily leave in the rearview mirror.
