Fox 25 NewsDrama at Wayland High School over a movie made 25 years ago about a famous Olympic bobsled team. The 1988 Jamaican Bobsled Team pictured in Disney’s “Cool Runnings” is known by most as one of the most famous Olympic underdog stories, but at Wayland High School, the PG movie made for kids 25 years ago has become a source of outrage.

“Cool Runnings” came out seven years before the oldest students were born, so many of them hadn’t heard of it until this week. 

It’s “winter week” at Wayland High School, meant for students to relax after midterms. Each Wednesday of the winter week features a movie and the student council announced Tuesday that “Cool Runnings” was this year’s pick. But hours later, the principal sent an email to students saying the movie was canceled: 

“Winter Week is a long-standing tradition at WHS in which students engage in enrichment activities during the week following midyear exams.  For the last two years, Winter Week has included a movie viewed simultaneously by all students.  The viewing of this movie, selected by Student Council, is for the purpose of bringing the school together by means of a story with a positive message.  

Following the recent announcement that Cool Runnings would be the movie shown this year, I received concerns from members of our community that raised my awareness about elements of the movie that could be viewed as culturally and racially insensitive.  After researching these concerns further, I felt that Cool Runnings no longer fit the purpose, values, and scheduling format for an all-school event.  I decided to cancel today’s showing.

While disappointing for students, I want to emphasize that this experience has inspired productive, honest conversation about stereotypes in the media, the nature of narrative, and subtle, racially insensitive messages as compared to overt racism.   

More than anything, this event has demonstrated that active and engaged citizenship at WHS is alive and well.  I am proud of the students who have listened carefully, challenged respectfully, and reflected deeply during this experience.”  

Allyson Mizoguchi, Principal, Wayland High School.

That started a reply-all chain with more than 150 responses from students, and has now turned into full blown outrage. The email firestorm prompted the principal to schedule an emergency forum with students who showed up armed with Google research.

“It’s a PG movie for kids 8 and above… we are 8 and above.”

“Jamaica is sending their first women’s bobsled team this year, why not, this is the perfect time to show this movie.”

In the past 24 hours, many of the students have become “Cool Runnings” experts, without ever having seen it, but after school? The plans were pretty similar for everyone. 

“I’m definitely gonna go home and Netflix.”

“Gonna go home and watch the movie anyway.”

“I’m gonna go home and watch it on Netflix.”

Survey by the student paper of 115 students showed only 2 supported the principal’s decision. 

Not many movies can make me cry, but Cool Runnings comes close every time. When that bobsled flips over at the end and their dreams are crushed, but they still stand up and walk that puppy to the finish line while the slow clap gets going….man that just does it for me.

I gotta say though, I am thoroughly impressed with the parents and students of Wayland for fighting back against the latest gutless PC administrator who caved to political correctness run amok.

I’m also pleasantly surprised. Wayland is one of those ultra wealthy, northern metrowest towns between 95 and 495 and the Pike that seems like they’re probably considering banning plastic bags if they haven’t done so already. It would not surprise me at all if multiple white parents decided that Cool Runnings was the latest thing they could call racist after intentionally moving to a town that hardly has any people of color.

But as usual it looks like it was just ONE FREAKING PARENT who had a problem with this movie. And instead of the principal doing her job and telling this miserable hag to pound sand, they let them make the decision about what everyone else’s normal kids got to watch.

If you think

Cool Runnings

is even remotely racist, you’re just not someone that any rational person should taken seriously. You should be dismissed and mocked. But instead they’re encouraged to raise the crazy level every time something like this happens. Seriously, what’s racist about it? That they talk with Jamaican accents? Newsflash – people in Jamaica have Jamaican accents in real life. That’s not racist. It’s called acting. Kind of like how any time a movie about Boston is made you hear some of the most laughably forced Boston accents from the likes of Martin Sheen, Alec Baldwin, and Blake Lively.

I just don’t get it. It’s not like it’s a bunch of white actors dressed up in blackface. It’s actual black people. One of them is Leon Robinson, and he got wind of it and called out principal Allyson Mizoguchi on Twitter:

Hey principal

 

Mizoguchi – ya dead mon? Because a washed up movie star just put you in a body bag. He called you out to meet up with him face to face. A real life Jamaican man who isn’t offended about the movie he starred in. As a non-black person it’s actually pretty racist to assume that this would be racially insensitive. By doing so you’re suggesting that black people are so fragile and emotional that they could be triggered by a Disney movie about hope and redemption. Racist much?

Cool Runnings

 also might be the most appropriate movie you could show kids right now. The winter Olympics are about to start, and that movie was the true story of four black men from a country with no snow and no ice overcoming the seemingly impossible to break down racial barriers. We’re living in a country where we could use stuff like this to unite and inspire students to do great things. But instead the gutless administrator gave into the mob of one or two professional SJW malcontents who took offense on behalf of people who clearly are not offended to begin with.

Oh, and this wasn’t a problem in 2014 after the last Olympics:

It wasn’t racist then and it’s not racist now. But Mizoguchi was not the principal then. Obviously this woman is still haunted by a creative student Halloween costume and decided to get her revenge once she became principal.

Students from Wayland, a town that is 87% white, less than 1% black, and has a sizable Japanese population, clearly are not offended:

Sophomore Sidney Toga was one of the first students to respond in detail.

“In 1988, a group of four Jamaicans traveled to the Winter Olympics, hoping to break stereotypes. These four individuals only had a dream. They had a dream to prove that they and anyone could compete in anything, no matter what it was,” Toga wrote in his reply. “The fact that the administration has come up with the idea that this movie shows racially insensitive portrayals of characters is absolutely and utterly absurd.”

“As a person who has seen this movie many times and as a person of color, I would like to point out that this movie has nothing to do with racism at all,” sophomore Michayla Mathis wrote. “Actually, it focuses on [the characters’] struggle[s] to prove people wrong who doubt them.”

That moment when the kids show that they’re smarter than the principal.

And I won’t even get into the story about how she fired the school’s athletic director (who is now suing her) because he blew the whistle on a Title IX violation that left the girl’s sports teams at Wayland HS underfunded when compared to the boys. Because I’m trying to focus on one thing right now.

This proves Allyson Mizoguchi is unfit for this job. As an administrator it’s your duty to be able to handle people with competing interests and make executive decisions that are in the best interest of the school. Your decision making skills are critical, and clearly this woman failed in that regard. Look how idiotic she sounds:

I received concerns from members of our community that raised my awareness about elements of the movie that could be viewed as culturally and racially insensitive.  After researching these concerns further, I felt that Cool Runnings no longer fit the purpose, values, and scheduling format for an all-school event.

Members of your community? Who? A responsible leader would tell these people that their concerns were duly noted, but that as principal she felt that this movie was appropriate for students, and chosen by them.

Then she threw this in there:

While disappointing for students, I want to emphasize that this experience has inspired productive, honest conversation about stereotypes in the media, the nature of narrative, and subtle, racially insensitive messages as compared to overt racism.   

What?? What kind of productive conversation has been inspired by your idiotic decision? You made Wayland into a national laughingstock. Media from all over the country is writing about you. You’re making headlines for all of the wrong reasons. The conversation with students was one sided – they all agreed that your decision was dumb. High school kids are all smarter than you.

And seriously, “stereotypes in the media?” Have you been to Jamaica before. It’s the most laid back place on earth. It takes them two hours to get you your continental breakfast and when you ask where your food is they tell you, “No pro-blem. Only situation.” This isn’t a stereotype, it’s real life. You sit on the beach and guys walk by you trying to sell you sugarcane:

They pretty much only listen to Bob Marley and serenade your wife right in front of you:

And they do legendary Aerosmith karaoke at Senor Frogs:

Someone get that guy a record deal, stat!

They also really into track and cricket, they don’t have running water, they like to smoke weed, and they don’t like the gays. That’s not a stereotype, it’s just how life is on the island.

Allyson Mizoguchi, bow your head in shame.

P.S. Just in case the PC parents from Wayland think that’s a racial thing because she’s of Japanese descent, “bow your head in shame” is a common American saying when someone has said something shameful.

    Why are most school administrators blithering idiots? Oh… most were terrible teachers who could never last in the classroom for their whole careers.

    #Give Japs a chance! Let’s be honest here, we basically leveled their island country in WW2 and they responded by providing us with cheap cars and crazy bukkake porn.

    The poor girl probably spent her life fighting off kids who tried to blindfold her with dental floss and went Pearl Harbor on her ass.

    Just to put it out there… I do NOT like Jamaican guys. Not even a little. I was with 2 1/2 Jamaican guys. The half is because, he was early on in my experiences and he could only fir like 14 inches in my balloon knot, ya know like 1/2 his stuff. I bet now he could get it all in there… I been using my rectum stretcher every day. It’s almost 5′ 6″ now… I’m almost 100% asshole.

    Anyways… The other 2, I blew. And their jizz is like spicy. Hot. Like it really bothered my herpe sores. Almost like pepper spray. And did it ever give me heartburn. For like 2 days. I can’t even smell jerk chicken without getting queezy.

    Anyways… then I beat them up for being fags. #LiveForWeymouthPole

    They havent banned plastic bags?! Do you know who *did*?!

    Athol. Fucking Athol. As if the lack of plastic bags will somehow help that city not be a wretched hive of scum and villainy.

    For those of us living out this way, we go to Market Basket in Athol. We don’t live in a damn city, so we only go once a week, or once every two. So when we do go, we get A LOT of groceries.

    And now I have paper bags ripping all over the fucking place; the middle of the parking lot, my driveway, my car. 

    And you just know it’s because the 4 or 5 wealthy people in Athol who think environmentalism is a fun hobby made MB do this.

    I bet 100 bucks she is a member of the most racist group in America. The group that has done to blacks what the KKK, Jim Crow, and crack cocaine couldn’t do. Destroyed their families. Took away their hope. The result? Gang, drug addiction, fatherless homes, generational welfare. She belongs to the group called Democrats who invented The Great Society. LBJ invented this plan and bragged how it would keep the (insert the N word here) voting Democratic for the next 200 years. I pray that some Wayland kids come to this blog and read this comment. I ask you kids to research what I have just told you. I have. And I am ashamed to say I voted for that group of racists along time ago. Learn what liberalism is all about. Staying in power by keeping others on the modern day plantation while being a part of the ruling class.

    She needs to take her useless PhD and resign from that position so that Wayland taxpayers can hire someone with goals, direction and the ability to deliver positive changes to the school district, keep things moving forward, and deliver a terrific experience for the students. No more Ed.D. degrees – sent them all to forced labour camps for rehabilitation into skills more useful for society, like washing dishes, detailing my car and landscaping.

    This woman doesn’t understand racism at all. If there was a movie about Jamaica assembling an Olympic swim team that couldn’t swim THAT would be racist. If there was a movie about an Asian nascar driver that keeps causing accidents THAT would be racist. If there was a movie about a middle eastern fencing team that won by beheading their opponents THAT would be racist. I could do this all day.

      you are correct Barry ! the reality in this case is that this woman has a ridiculously cushy job in a wealthy district and could care less about racism. she is playing the old Asian game…” don’t break my rice bowl”. she will change her mind in a second if given the chance of not “losing face”. it’s just how they are…greedy and shrewd.

    I DEMAND Turtleboy make this woman’s career end in shambles. If she’s not in the Turtleboy Graveyard by the end of the school year….well…. there’s nothing I can really do other than bitch about it in the comments section.

    That being said, has anyone seen the news around the internet saying more teenagers are now identifying as transgender than ever before? It’s because of people like her. It’s not an anomaly, this is happening because of years and years of teachers telling little boys its ok to dress in mommy’s clothes and be women. THESE PEOPLE CONTROL VULNERABLE CHILDREN”S MINDS and this is what’s happening now.

    • Mike
      February 6, 2018 at 6:01 pm

      It’s because transgender is a mental illness and young people’s minds are susceptible to influence. That’s why most transgender people act nutty and attention whorish, they are burning with the fever of mental illness.

That kid is probably going to grow up and become a rapist or a child molester now. Luckily it’ll probably convicted of its first felony by the time its 14 and end up doing life in prison by the time its 21.

    What is the problem? Even if it is offensive, where Turtleboy Sports, we don’;t give a fuck. Actually, most of us want more than the weak ass Cool Runnings. They should be watching, and we should be advocating with full force and physical coercion, Birth of a Nation! That masterful creation of DW Griffith, where lynching as a positive thing, a must see that reinforced our long honored tradition that black people should be lynched. Just think of how much White Power Wayland could score if they played good old Birth of a Nation on a continuous loop at the school? I dare say, by 2nd mid terms they would be sacrificing a couple gangstas a day. Is not this what Trump and the under the veil majority really want for this country? I do. We can only do so if we protest aganst these pussy films like Cool Pissings and bring back the classics. White Lives Matter!

Predictable as a sunrise. I miss the old days when cops would make dickbags like that eat a nightstick.

      But that’s another curveball, because this douchebag gave himself away already. He’s not even American. Americans don’t use terms like “arse” and “I dare say”, even when fucking around. EVER. It’s too fucking faggy.,
