Here’s your daily dose of fake news from WHDH:
In this struggling mill town in western New Hampshire, racism was never something people talked all that much about. There were people who drove around Claremont with Confederate flag bumper stickers in the mostly white town of 14,000 and some instances of high schoolers using racial epithets during football games and on Facebook. But for the most part, residents had other concerns.
That changed Aug. 28 after allegations surfaced that several teenagers had taunted a 9-year-old biracial boy with racial slurs and several days later pushed him off a picnic table with a rope tied around his neck. The family of the boy, who was treated for neck injuries and has been released, called it a hate crime while the parents of one of the teenagers told Newsweek it was a terrible accident.
The images of the boy’s rope-singed neck were shared widely on social media, prompting an outpouring of support for the family and outrage against the teens. With prosecutors continuing to investigate the case as a potential hate crime, the city known for historic textile and paper mill buildings found itself associated with words like lynching and intolerance.
“Certainly people were shocked by the young age of everyone involved, especially the victim,” said Allen Damren, the town’s assistant mayor who also grew up in Claremont. “That certainly has an impact on people. When you use the word ‘lynching,’ that has all sorts of bad connotations to it.” “It happened in our hometown. People responded to that,” he added.
The case has compelled city leaders to confront an issue that many had associated with bigger cities far away. Most insist Claremont isn’t a racist place but say the town must consider how its white majority treats those who don’t look like them. The families of the accused teens declined comment.
Stop right there. “The town must consider how its white majority treats those who don’t look like them.” Newsflash – this kid looks exactly like the white majority in town:
If we’re basing racism on looks, then this kid LOOKS white, therefore he could not have been a victim of a racially motivated hate crime. “Real news.”
Also funny that all of a sudden Mom and Grandma don’t have shit to say to the media. They were all about it for weeks until we completely exposed their GoFundMe pity racism scam. They knew that shit would work with Fox 25, WHDH, WCVB, and the rest of the fake news patrol. But once the turtle starts watching on you it’s game over.
“This is an opportunity to take a very unfortunate event involving children and have some public discussions about how we treat each other,” said Middleton McGoodwin, the superintendent of the school district that includes Claremont. “Just because you may have a different color skin or different color hair or wear certain clothing, that doesn’t give me license to make you feel uncomfortable or make fun of you.”
Wait a minute. The superintendent’s name is “Middleton McGoodwin”? As in, “one of the good ones?” And according to him, “just because we have different skin color” we don’t get to make fun of or harass each other. But……the white majority of Claremont DOES have the same skin color as the kid they’re rallying around. So……what are we doing this for?
More than 100 people from Claremont and surrounding towns gathered last month in a downtown city park to speak out against racism. Holding signs reading “Teach Love Not Hate” and “Stand Together,” residents listened as city officials and religious leaders spoke about the near-hanging and the need to confront intolerance.
It was kids fucking around. It has nothing to do with intolerance.
City and school officials have since met to discuss new strategies to counter racism,
and McGoodwin said the district is developing a plan for elementary through high school that examines school culture, including how students treat each other and how staff respond to issues like bullying. Residents are planning to be outside the high school and middle school this week, holding signs calling for an end to violence and bullying.
“We are not going to say this was an event that took place in late August, wasn’t in school and wasn’t about us,” McGoodwin said. “It definitely is about us.”
All of this, because some ratchet Mom who didn’t even live with her kids, fabricated racial elements of a backyard accident so she could pocket $52,000 with a GoFundMe that’s in her “brother” Lyrik’s name, so that it doesn’t affect her benefits. This is the skagbag the town is rallying behind:
This is their family:
How fucking stupid and clueless do you have to be to participate in this charade? There was no racism in Claremont. There were a few kids doing stupid shit in a backyard, the 8 year old got hurt, the older kids saved him before he died, and NONE OF IT has a single thing to do with race.
This is why you come to Turtleboy Sports. Because you can’t trust WHDH or any of the other fake news media.
