So there was a big protest/walkout at Easthampton High School to fix racism yesterday. Let’s see what happened:
Hundreds of Easthampton High School students staged a walkout this morning to protest a racial incident at the school and to stand up for respect and harmony. On Wednesday, a white student who posted a racial slur to social media was confronted in the school parking lot by a small group of students with brown or black skin, and one of them threw a punch, several students told The Republican, speaking on a condition of anonymity. The students with darker skin were suspended, including the one responsible for the assault, the students reported. They said they did not have information on any punishment visited upon the white student for his alleged part in the incident.
So let me get this straight. A white kid wrote a racial slur on social media, and he was confronted by a small group of students of color in the parking lot, one of who physically assaulted him. The student who was responsible for the assault was suspended, and the student who wrote the racial slurs on social media was not. So…..what am I missing here? Where’s the racism that’s being protested? Writing racial slurs on social media on your own time might make you a deplorable, but it’s not a suspendable offense. Forming a small group and then punching someone is a suspendable offense. But yea…..racism….or something.

Basically what we have here is school skipping under the guise of social justice. Kids just didn’t wanna go to class so they did what everyone is doing now-a-days – made a bunch of signs and protested racism. Naturally they’re being hailed as heroes:
“Taking a stand against racism.”
“A peaceful protest for diversity.”
“More sense and more courage than some adults.”
“Racism is not okay.”
All of that means absolutely nothing. It’s just things people say to feel good about themselves. Racism is not OK? Wow, really going out on a limb on that one! A peaceful protest for diversity? These kid’s parents purposely chose to live in a town that is 1% black. You want diversity? Buy a house in Springfield. Of course most of these protesting student’s parents would never do that, because let’s face it – a big reason people move to the suburbs is so their kids won’t be stuck in school with……well, ya know.
“The students don’t believe the situation has been addressed.”
Oh, OK. Because the opinions of students when it comes to school discipline is something that matters. I know I was often consulted by my high school principal before they handed out punishments to students who had nothing to do with me.
OK snowflake, what would you like them to do?
my bros got arrested for fighting someone who used the N word. the kid who used the word, nothing. 😤🤔

It’s really simple Samantha. People can write racist slurs on the Internet during their free time. It might make them assholes and unpleasant to be around, but this is how the First Amendment works. However, there is no such right to punch someone in the face for writing racist words on the Internet. Smart people understand the difference. Guess you’re not very smart.
The school is full of racism because one kid wrote a racial slur on Yik Yak? Yea, sounds like Easthampton is turning into the KKK training ground. Definitely.
Says the child posting on Facebook during school hours.
What will not be allowed? People writing racial slurs on the Internet? Sorry Tina, as much as Turtleboy doesn’t like racial slurs, people have every right to write them on the Internet. If your principal, the cops, or your teachers start using racial slurs in front of you while they are working, then it’s problematic and actions need to be taken. But a high school kid writing racial slurs on the Internet is protected speech, as unpleasant as it may be. This is how freedom works.
Anyway, those are mostly kids. They don’t know any better. Adults on the other hand….
Wait……what? Words on the Internet are hate crimes? So a kid wrote a racial slur on social media, and the ONLY recourse for the 1% of students of color in the building was to jump him in the parking lot? This is what social justice looks like? Oh yea, that makes TONS of sense. Keep going, you’re doing great Greggy boy!!
The there’s this idiot:
Once again, what should the white student be suspended for? What rules did he violate during school hours? Show me in the handbook the specific rule he violated and I’ll throw the book at him myself. Can you do that for me Katie?
TRIGGERED!!! The classic move by SJW’s. Someone confronts you with logic and reason, and you run for the hills because you “don’t have time to spend arguing,” even though you’ve spent the entire day arguing on social media.
Then there’s this peach:
Why are people assuming the black students are the ones who caused the fight? Oh, I dunno. The fact that there was four of them, and one white kid? Or maybe the fact that the school suspended one of them, but not the white kid. Ya know Natascia, you’re probably right. What probably happened here is the administration got together and said,
“Both parties are equally deserving of suspension here, and we don’t have any idea what happened, so let’s just suspend the black kid to be on the safe side. Because we’re racist.”
And even though she was not there, and doesn’t live in Easthampton, she’s still an expert based on things she “heard” on the Internet:
She’s well qualified to decide that administrator’s are intentionally covering up for the racist white kid. After all, she’s a substitute teacher:
So she’s got it all figured out. Plus she held a black lives matter sign:
She changed her profile picture to black lives matter
And she plans to “show up against white terror”
So she’s basically fixed racism with a click of her mouse.
It never ceases to amaze me how stupid people can be. If you thought that this protest was something that should be applauded, then you are in fact an idiot. A student physically assaulted another student and was suspended for it. It doesn’t matter how mad he was, or what the other student said. In a civilized society you cannot punch people because they say things you don’t like. Smart people understand this. Social justice warriors are not smart people.
