Student in yearbook identified only as ‘Black Girl’

`A Texas school district has apologized to a student identified only as ‘Black Girl’ in a high school yearbook photo.

All the White students are identified by name in a photograph of the Waxahachie High School National Honor Society. The teen identified as ‘Black Girl’ is the only Black student in the photo.

A schools spokeswoman says the caption apparently was intended as a placeholder until the yearbook staff could identify the student. She tells a newspaper, the Waxahachie Daily Light, the label was a poor choice, but wasn’t malicious.’
