Principal Under Fire After Punishing Black Students For Looking Like ‘Dr. Dre’

A Texas high school principal is facing major backlash after punishing black students for looking like Dr. Dre.

Principal Anthony LiVechhi issued an apology once he was caught on video last Thursday stating how black students at the school dress like “Dr. Dre from the 90s” and saying they “looked like criminals”.

Oak Ridge High School in Houston let the students have a “90s Throwback Day” but it seems the principal didn’t like how some black students came to school dressed.

“IT’S EMBARRASSING. IT’S FRUSTRATING. WE HAVE PEOPLE POSING FOR PICTURES LOOKING LIKE THEY’RE DR. DRE FROM THE ’90S. I’M NOT SURE THAT’S THE LOOK WE’RE GOING FOR. IT DOESN’T MAKE OUR SCHOOL LOOK GOOD,” LIVECHHI SAID.

Students spoke out stating his comments made them feel like they were living back in the civil rights era.

“(IT’S) KIND OF DOWNPLAYING ON THE WAY MY MOM AND DAD DRESSED WHEN THEY WERE IN SCHOOL,” SENIOR NEKIA BAKER expressed to KPRC 2.

“The analogy of comparing us to Dr. Dre was used to bring us down and to degrade the way we were dressing and to degrade our school spirit and our 90s day,” junior Nia Dixon shared.

On Monday, activist Quanell X and parents held a meeting with school officials while about 100 students sat and kneeled in solidarity. LiVecchi issued an apology after the meeting.




“I love you all. That’s not how you need to be treated. It won’t happen again,” LiVecchi said in a recorded cell phone video.
