This article in The State explains what happened at Blythewood High School that prompted a two-page press release by Richland 2 School District
Somebody's panties got twisted over a student's posting into blackface.
Does anybody still wonder why racism is alive and well in Richland County, in Columbia, in South Carolina, in The South, in the USA?
The article mentions the school's Spirit Week, which includes wearing of the color-of-the-week as black for freshman. So a freshman wore black, including blackened arms and face.
I hope this student and his parents sue Richland 2 for violation of his First Amendment right of free speech. I can recommend an attorney. The one who beat CNN over the head on behalf of Nick Sandmann. And the ones representing Kyle Rittenhouse, who are suing Joe Biden and his campaign for libel.
Pretty soon the case will be in Richland 2 that they will prohibit using the word "black". You'll be required to say Black.
So much for sensitivity training and cultural awareness.
The Blythewood principal was quoted in The State as saying, "we will Be The Change". Where have I heaerd that before??? I didn't like it then, either.
