    Human N-Word Collage; School’s Black Student Union Weighs In

    http://www.theroot.com/articles/news...ge_school.html

    Oh Arizona. You never fail to amaze. Neither do teens who don’t realize how quickly a photo posted to social media can upend their lives.

    Surely by now you have seen the photo circulating on social media with six American teenage girls—flanked abreast, smiles ablaze—and the n-word plastered across their chests. Each young woman is donning a black t-shirt with a gold letter or asterisk on it. When standing together, the word “N-I-*-*-E-R” is spelled out.

    Apparently members of the senior class of Desert Vista High School in Ahwatukee, a neighborhood of Phoenix, took a photo earlier that day for the yearbook spelling out “Best*You’ve*Ever*Seen*Class*of*2016.” Six of them got together later with the bright idea of standing together to spell out the n-word. Somehow the photo found its way to Instagram.

    One Twitter user commented, “Just imagining the dialogue they had before taking the photo.”

    And … the consequences are starting to roll in. There are unconfirmed reports that the students have been suspended for five days but many think that this is not enough.

    A Change.org petition began circulating on Friday calling for the students’ explusion as well as the firing of the school’s principal. As of Saturday morning, the petition had more than 5,500 signatures.

    ABC15 in Phoenix reports that parents began contacting the school on Friday, and, predictably, a representative from the district weighed in, as did the superintendent.

    “Words cannot express the outrage,” Jill Hanks from the Tempe Union High School District said. “What were they thinking? We had some students that made a really bad decision this morning.”

    District Superintendent Dr. Kenneth Baca said, “It is unacceptable for any racial slur to be used regardless of intent. We need to understand that words matter.”

    According to ABC15, Desert Vista Principal Dr. Christine Barela sent out a letter to parents on Friday, which read in part:

    We want to let you know we share your outrage and disappointment over the actions of a handful of our students today. We want to make it crystal clear those actions are unacceptable and will not be tolerated at Desert Vista. Those actions do not represent who we are as a campus. We can assure you we will discipline these students in accordance with district policy and our student handbook. While we don’t discuss individual discipline, we can tell you that in addition, the obvious need for sensitivity training will be addressed.

    It should be noted that in February 2014, a black teacher, Dr. Cicely Cobb, filed a federal lawsuit against Desert Vista High School and the Tempe Union High School District, making allegations of racial discrimination by students and a lack of action by administrators when she reported such incidents.

    Presently, News12 reports that a local pastor and civil rights activist, Rev. Jarrett Maupin, said in a news release that he and others are going to meet with Superintendent Baca to discuss the incident on Monday.

    Maupin said in the statement that the image should “give everyone a cause for concern.” The release also promised that if the parents and students aren’t satisfied with the school’s and district’s response, they may protest and file charges with the U.S. Department of Education.

    The Desert Vista Black Student Union posted its own photo on Twitter on Friday with the comment, “The incident that occurred today at Desert Vista High School does not reflect the beliefs of the student body!”

    Obviously, the best and brightest.

    I can't imagine how that happened.

    Oh, boy. A Rev.'s involved. I'm sure this'll make the situation better.

    Don't worry, rg17. They will undergo sensitivity training; that'll straighten them out.

    Now suppose the third girl had changed places with the first girl. Then they would have spelled 'GINGER' and no one would ever have noticed.

    The funny thing to me is that all these progs run around claiming that using an epithet used to refer to redheads is nothing at all, but using one referring to the chocolate-skinned is a deadly sin. So they claim that calling someone a redhead is no big deal, but calling them dark skinned is a horrible insult. And they not only say this makes them not racist, but that this makes them the cure for racism.

    Seems to me that anyone who claims being called a ginger is less insulting than the other thing is making a very racist distinction.

    Because if someone doesn't "feel comfortable" with someone in this brave new middle school Official Culture, a death sentence is perfectly reasonable.

    Yes we should fine them and jail them for dropping the n-bomb, maybe some old fashioned civil asset forfeiture of each of their parents homes.

    'We endorse the idea of voluntarism; self-responsibility: Family, friends, and churches to solve problems, rather than saying that some monolithic government is going to make you take care of yourself and be a better person. It's a preposterous notion: It never worked, it never will. The government can't make you a better person; it can't make you follow good habits.' - Ron Paul 1988

    Let's see how the sensitivity training goes first.

    Writing "n-bomb" is the same as writing "ni**er".

    Radical in the sense of being in total, root-and-branch opposition to the existing political system and to the State itself. Radical in the sense of having integrated intellectual opposition to the State with a gut hatred of its pervasive and organized system of crime and injustice. Radical in the sense of a deep commitment to the spirit of liberty and anti-statism that integrates reason and emotion, heart and soul. - M. Rothbard

    Saw this all over facebook earlier. Those girls basically ruined their short term futures over this. If they actually are hateful racists, then good, let them burn. If (more likely imo) they were just dumb kids making a bad joke without thinking it through, then I really feel for them. They are going to feel the full brunt of the PC lynch mob.

    Maupin is a rather legendary troll in Phoenix/metro. Not all bad, tho.

    $#@!ing heartbreaking.

    In New Zealand:
    The Coastguard is a Charity
    Air Traffic Control is a private company run on user fees
    The DMV is a private non-profit
    Rescue helicopters and ambulances are operated by charities and are plastered with corporate logos
    The agriculture industry has zero subsidies
    5% of the national vote, gets you 5 seats in Parliament
    A tax return has 4 fields
    Business licenses aren't even a thing nor are capital gains taxes
    Constitutional right to refuse any type of medical care
