A Mankato School Board member is accusing the board of systemic racism. Abdi Sabrie posted on Facebook that he has been left out of elections and governance, and out of the district’s picture on the website. He says as the only person of color on the board, he has been the victim of racism in the boardroom.

Darren Wacker, the chair of the school board, has said there will be a special school board meeting to address the claims.
