On June 7, 2001, The New York Post reported that "more than 100 Asian-immigrant students at Lafayette HS in Brooklyn signed a petition yesterday, complaining that their school isn't safe - after a Pakistani native was beaten by bullies. The students and the father of the victim say they're being picked on because of their religion and ethnicity."
