I was in our teacher’s meeting today. I was describing my horror at the students’ text/emails with racist comments (yesterday’s post).
One of the counselors (!) says, “Oh I got this funny text! It said: Text from Obama to all white people…Meet me in the cotton fields at 6am.” And she started laughing. Tried to say how great it is that we now have a president that would never do that…or whatever.
My colleague and friend, “Mr. L” and I were not laughing. Because it wasn’t funny.
Yes, racism. It is alive and well.
