Students’ watermelon stunt at football game prompts complaints of racism, apology

Ballard (Louisville) High School students behaved insensitively and inappropriately when they passed around a watermelon in the stands at a football game Friday against Central High School, Ballard Principal Jason Neuss said in a letter sent this weekend to parents.
Neuss said school authorities are investigating how and why the watermelon was brought into the game at Ballard’s stadium.
“While we do not know the purpose or the intent, we recognize it was inappropriate, insensitive and we are addressing not only who brought it, but how it was allowed in the stadium in the first place,” Neuss wrote.
Students were photographed passing around the watermelon by a Courier Journal photographer who was covering the game, and the photo was posted on courierjournal.com and on the Courier Journal Facebook page
