With the rise of social media platforms such as Facebook and YouTube, more and more killings by police are being captured and brought to the public’s attention. Unfortunately, the rates at which African-Americans are killed by police are higher than those for Whites in the United States. The African American children left behind are often not offered assistance past their financial needs. Little to no research has been completed to study the effects of how these children’s behavior are affected in a school setting.
