TUCSON, Arizona (KVOA) -- Complaints of harassment and derogatory language are being investigated at Ironwood Ridge High School in Tucson.

Concerned parents reached out to News 4 Tucson, saying their children have faced discrimination. These parents say the harassment is racially motivated. They say it's happening on campus, during after school sports, and on social media.

To protect their identity, we won't use their names.

The family says their two children have been the victims of hate crimes because they're black; everything from food thrown at them in the cafeteria, name calling, the 'N word' being put on Facebook and written on desks.

They've filed complaints over five years, but say little is being done to stop the harassment.
