The Diocese of Covington is being evacuated after reports that a suspicious package had been found.

“WLWT in Cincinnati is reporting that police and fire crews are being sent to the Diocese of Covington following reports of a suspicious package,” the report said. “This follows protests at the Diocese following a viral video involving an indigenous protester and a Covington Catholic Student.”

The Diocese of Covington is home to Covington Catholic High School, which was engulfed in controversy after the mainstream news falsely accused Nick Sandmann of “mocking” a Native American man. After the entire news media gave Nathan Phillips, who lied about serving in Vietnam, a platform to smear the boys, video evidence which showed Phillips approaching Sandmann vindicated them from wrongdoing. The lying media took the confrontation out of context, sparking a wave of doxxing and death threats against the boys from popular media figures.

The Diocese, for its part, has not exactly stood up for the boys. In fact, it condemned them on its website. Parents in the town, though, have stoop up to Diocese, threatening to boycott it’s Catholic Confirmation ceremony if Bishop Roger Joseph Foys does not apologize for throwing them under the bus.

Citing the pandemic and “racial inequities,” Boston Public Schools has suspended enrollment in an advanced class program for fourth, fifth, and sixth graders.

The program is called Advanced Work Classes, and superintendent Brenda Cassellius has said it will go on a one-year hiatus.

There’s been a lot of inequities that have been brought to the light in the pandemic that we have to address,” Cassellius told GBH News. “There’s a lot of work we have to do in the district to be anti-racist and have policies where all of our students have a fair shot at an equitable and excellent education.”

Students already in Advanced Work Classes will be able to stay enrolled and continue their work, but for at least one year there will be no new fifth- or sixth-grade students admitted to the program. Fourth-grade students will be admitted “by standards to be determined at the school level.”

80 percent of all Boston public school students are either Hispanic or black, but 70 percent of the students enrolled in Advanced Work Classes are either white or Asian.

School Committee member Lorna Rivera was quoted as saying “this is just not acceptable,” adding that she’s “never heard these statistics before” and is “very, very disturbed by them.”

Superintendent Cassellius also claims that interest in Advanced Work Classes has waned over the years and that only five schools in the district had been offering them.
