Only a blind man would think that high school age kids are not capable of being racists or even capable of hate crimes for that matter.

 

When I was in high school in the late sixties, many students were racists and very vocal about it. That hasn't changed, the students in schools today are sometimes vocal about it, just as the kids (and parents) were being vocal about it in the instance pointed out in this posted topic.

 

Denial doesn't change any of that.


Only in the hate-filled minds of the left would having a Trump banner make some kids racist.

Is this the "banner of hate" that bothers you?

It is the divisive politics of the left that creates such problems. And, as I recall, that was the goal of the Russian plot to weaken us. Nice job, Guys (generic).


To the contrary it is racism, bigotry and the denial of their existence by the Right that creates the division and "such problems".


I do not deny it's existence. I deny it being in every nook and cranny that the left sees. And I truly believe it is a political weapon used by the left to attack others - and that is a shame. For example, to me seeing people as people is the ideal. Constantly obsessing over skin color and the rest is divisive and does no good for anyone.

Oh for goodness sakes. Surely this isn't all that you see in this.


It is what is in the pictures. I understand that the hate-filled left sees more in their minds but there is no more in the pictures.

Truth to be told, the High School is just down the bluff from where I live....about 4 miles as the crow flies. I've had the opportunity to talk with the assistant principle and the local church staff member who wrote the letter previously posted.  They can see the issue and are clearly embarrassed by the behavior.  They aren't trying to obfuscate the matter like some are and are addressing it "head=on".  Their REAL leaders....

The notion that if something is political it cannot also be racist was erased from reality by the Civil War, and obliterated by Nixon's "Southern Strategy" in 1968.

 

Back in 1963, immediately after we heard about the Kennedy assissanation, I heard a white bigot in my high school tell a black student "looks like we won't be going to school together anymore, not with a Texan in the White House".

 

The children of white bigots used their banners of hate to send the same message - OUR ToadPOTUS will make American White Again, so heads up black folks, OUR "heritage" and YOUR enslavement is returning.

Oh, this jerk.  Why didn't you just say so.  It would have been far less confusing....
