A Fairfield Warde student is facing suspension and possible expulsion after being accused of sharing a racist online post that targeted a fellow student.
Jamar Medor, who was allegedly targeted by the post, told News 12 that he was unsure why the student, who is not being named, posted what he did. Medor said the post included a picture of him and a racist comment saying he "should be in chains." 
"I was just mad confused, because I was a target to someone I didn't do anything to, and it was just uncalled for," he said.
He eventually informed school administrators after friends showed him the post. He says he was told that the student was suspended with further recommendation of expulsion.
Medor's mother Judith says she's also filed a complaint with the NAACP and will be pursuing criminal charges.
"I'm not saying that racism is new to me. But it's very shocking to me that this happened to my son," she says.
Fairfield police say they are working closely with Fairfield Warde High School in their investigation.
