Baldwin-Woodville boy suspended for noose-like art

A high school freshman has been suspended for giving a small noose and what is being called a "KKK symbol" to a black classmate.

The boy said he did it as a joke. Baldwin-Woodville High School's principal has confirmed suspending the boy Dec. 14 after he confessed to placing the offending items, which were made in art class, on the victim's desk.

The victim's foster mother says the girl is 15 years old and is one of only three black students among the 450 attending the school.
