A Glendale elementary school principal has admitted to telling a 9-year old boy that it is OK to have racist feelings as long as you keep them to yourself.
“As we said to (the boy) when he was in here, in your heart you may have that feeling, and that is OK if that is your personal belief,” Abraham Lincoln Traditional School Principal Virginia Voinovich said in a tape-recorded parent-teacher conference. (Ha Ha -- way to go -- it's ok to think it --- just don't let US know you're thinking it -- what a jackass.)
The boy was suspended for three days this month for allegedly committing a “hate crime” by using the expression “brown people.”
According to school officials, the boy made a statement about “brown people” to another elementary student with whom he was having a conflict. They maintain it was his second offense using the phrase.
But the tape recording indicates this only came out after another parent was allowed to question the boy and elicited from him the statement that he “doesn't cooperate with brown people.”
After that was reported to the boy's teacher, he was made to stand in front of his class and publicly confess what he'd said.
The boy maintains that he never said it; that the words were put in his mouth by the parent who questioned him. That parent happens to be the mother of the student with whom he is having a conflict—and she happens to work for Abraham Lincoln as a detention-room officer.
The tape indicates that rather than just spouting off with racial invective, the boy was asked first why he didn't want to cooperate with brown people by the parent/school official. More here:
Mmmm-Hmmm -- hate crime, eh? And how do they know it's "hate" unless they read your mind? Fear not -- the thought police are all over it. Keep voting liberal too -- cuz this idea has plenty of potential for expansion.
Also -- I don't undercapisky the concept of "hate crime." If it's a crime -- punish it -- and punish it severely based on the history of the perpetrator -- end of discussion.
Hate crime, my white ass -- you fuckin' liberals don't even know how to punish career criminals and murderers correctly -- go form a drum circle, jackasses.
