Ceera Moseby is a first-time mom and due early next year. Her pregnancy has been smooth so far. Still, the young, healthy Indianapolis woman has cause for concern.

Local authorities are investigating a racially offensive image that was posted on social media. 

In a news release, the Evansville Police Department said officers were contacted Sunday evening about an image showing three white juveniles holding a black baby doll with a string around its neck.

Police say one of the juveniles had a shirt on his head shaped like a KKK hood.

The post identified the juveniles as EVSC students. 

Police contacted the school corporation in an effort to identify the kids, and the EVSC provided the names within 30 minutes.

Girls of color are much more likely than white girls to be suspended from Indiana schools and schools nationwide, according to a new report.

Indiana schools suspend about one in nine black girls, one in 29 Latina girls and one in 50 white girls, according to the report from the National Women’s Law Center.
