Hold the presses, you guys, Legoland Boston has gone Jim Crowe!
First of all, lady, the kids are 5 and 6 years old. They’re not scholars, they still need naps and eat paste. If you don’t speak pompous ass, let me translate this for you. This lady chaperoned her kid’s field trip to Legoland, and was displeased to learn that the kids couldn’t bring their lunches inside the venue. She insists white children were eating their lunches inside, but because her kid’s class is all black, this is racism. Segregation. This is the face of marginalization and adversity, apparently.
The response to her post was exactly what you’d expect, a total fucking witch hunt against Legoland and their policy of brown bagged segregation.
Shut the whole place down! Those employees need to be fired, so their children can never eat again, period, anywhere! This is racism in 2019, after all, isn’t it?
Oh, I guess it’s just a blanket policy, that applies to everyone. The literal opposite of racism. But all those white kids got to eat their lunches inside, remember? And don’t you dare ask for proof,
Or you are a bigot. Only racists expect actual evidence to back up a stranger’s claims on the internet. The woke among us just believe blindly, because, tolerance.
But, when pressed, looks like Ms. Johnson did in fact have proof,
Proof of a rather diverse crowd of children and adults, eating exactly nothing, with bottled water and coffee they clearly bought from the cafe.
So there’s that. I honestly can’t see any racism here, because it simply doesn’t exist. I’ve taken my kids to numerous museums and attractions where you can’t bring in outside food, and we are as white as the freshly fallen snow. It’s an annoyance, sure, designed to force you to buy overpriced food from their cafes, but it’s not racist. In fact, by her own admission, it sure sounds like the manager went out of his way to accommodate the group by not only allowing them to eat in the stairwell as opposed to outside in the cold. You could be a rational mature adult in a situation like this, let the kids eat their lunch in the stairwell and go back to your field trip, or you could be a Jessica and try to pull a shaky race card out, take to social media and call for the utter destruction of a business catering to young children’s imaginations because it has a fairly common outside food policy. Don’t be a Jessica.
