PTA Prez Says Racist Drawings Just Latest Attack on Black Elementary Students
Elementary School Racism PTA Prez Calls Out School District ... Racist Drawings Just Latest Attack on Black Kids

The elementary school students who targeted Black classmates with horrifically racist drawings aren't being held accountable, despite multiple other incidents of bigotry ... so says the SoCal school's PTA President.
Robin Allen joined "TMZ Live" Thursday, and unloaded on the school district for failing to issue any meaningful punishment for the students at Pepper Tree Elementary in Upland, CA. She also shot down the theory parents are behind the racist drawings.
Robin pointed out 6th graders made the offensive drawings on their own, completely unsolicited by teachers -- in other words, this was NOT a Black History Month lesson gone awry.
As we reported ... the drawings included captions like, "You're my favorite monkey," and "To my favorite cotton picker."
Racist Drawings Like 'You're My Favorite Monkey' Targeted at Black Elementary School Students
Even more disturbing ... Robin says the group of students responsible for the drawings have been calling Black kids monkeys and making animal noises all year -- not just this month.
Unfortunately, she claims the school district has let them get away with it for far too long.
One pair of parents of a Black student is blaming the parents of the offending students for teaching them bigotry -- but, as we said, Robin isn't letting the kids off that easy ... and wants the school district to prove it really does have a zero tolerance for hate.
Robin also feels the principal's apology for the incidents was far too delayed, coming 2 weeks after news of the drawings.
She's demanding real justice needs to be served, and STAT.
