relations and ensuring that different voices are heard. i've heard from a loft students from central who have reached out mainly on twitter to say they do not feel there's a racial divide at their school. students have been very passionate about this. we pulled just a few of their statements. one saying i go to central. it is anything but racist. multiple students have said the brawl was not about race, that it started as a food fight and another young man reached out to say that the fight doesn't represent what central is about, that there are wonderful things happening at the school, that he feels go unrecognized. there are dozens of other e-mails and tweets that we got similar to these. so a lot of conversation about this. i also talked to people here at the school, parents were not eager to go on camera. they didn't want their students to be interviewed either, but it seems the feeling by some is that the school could do more to increase security, but also that this is being taken seriously to
