Many of the world’s rich elites send their children to this school...and a lot of them not near democracies...they send their children to taste the most dominating force on the planet and to be dazzled by the best nation on the planet.

They travel all over the place when they are here. To many of them, it is miraculous experience that never leaves them over a lifetime!

Even our competitors and so called want them to see the greatness of who we really are, and our struggles.

It is in our interest there is no misjudgment of who we really are on a worldwide bases?

Carol Bellamy, former head of S.I.T. and UNICEF
and she's a CFR member, like Bill Moyers the CFR scum who like her Also got popped for DUI in Vermont
These CFR scum are not only drunk with power and pushing for a One-World totalitarian govt., they're literally drunk as well and on our roads

The main difference between the Nazis (National Socialist Workers Party) and modern socialists is that the Nazis were ultra-nationalist while mainstream lefty loons hate nationalism/ patriotism

She would have been a lot more safer on many levels if she smoke a boat load of pot instead of alcohol.

S.I.T. stands for Socialist Indoctrination Training
They support the New World Order, stupidly beLIEving that destroying nationalism and allowing a One-World govt. run by the G-d United Nations is the answer and will bring about whirled peas. The obliviots don't know or care that the NWO is being foisted on us by the same evil bankster scum who gave us mass death by the wars they created as well as funding eugenics etc.
Carol Bellemy the previous president of SIT is a G-d CFR member. She got popped for DUI a few years ago, as did CFR scum Bill Moyers in Vt b4 that.
"For Fairness and Diversity"
I recall a couple years ago Hannafords had a hand-made 'Celebrate Diversity' sign on the cork board by the door, so obviously someque er(s) work there and even if a boss/owner doesn't approve of that crap they're kinda forced to put up with it due to Political Correctness sh't.
Everyone knows 'Diversity' when used by the qu eerLeft really means Perversity
Oprah Winfrey: Obama is victim of racism, "Racists just have to die"
SIT does not actually teach anything that you just described. Most of its classes actually focus on issues in development and analyzes policies set by the UN, World Bank and other major and minor international and national NGOs. It leaves its students to decide rather or not these policies actually create positive change...we usually find it doesn't. But what would I know, I just go there.

There is something seriously wrong with many of the people on this board. Why does it offend you so much to hear that a student feels as though he was profiled? Do you feel as though he was being too sensitive? Does it make you so angry to hear someone's plight regardless of your understanding of the situation? Herein

As for the comments SIT is garnering; you cannot collectively make statements about an entire school. How would you feel if someone came along and named Brattleboro "an uneducated, restless haven for the ignorant, lazy and addicted". That is how I once heared Bratt. described. It doesn't feel good, does it? Your understanding of this situation comes from your biases and a newspaper article. That is not a lot to go by and I hope you use more information than that to make the important decisions in your lives - though, judging by some commentary, I suppose not. Please take a course at SIT before you decide it is useless B.S.

Also, one person remarked that Hannafords has a diversity sign on a board. I am not judging Hannafords and do not claim to understand the way the operate nor the people who work there ... however, every company has to do those things to save face. How many trainings have you attended at work for face's sake or because you had to. The fact that so many people misunderstand what this situation is about suggests many of you failed diversity training. Yes, it is a pretty collection of ideas and words, but without understanding the meaning, you don't know anything about it. It's like wearing a pin, you can choose to wear it, show it,'claim it' but it doesn't mean anything - it's just a pin.

Brattleboro (or perhaps southern Vermont) you need a lot of help in divining the issues at play here; you are embarrassing yourself with this petty, poorly crafted dialogue.

I had the misfortune of living few years in Brattleboro Vermont during grade/high school in the late 80s and early 90s. It’s nice to see that Brattleboro, VT in 2015 is still the laughable, backward, racist, bigoted poor white trash cesspool that I remember – filled with the same poor white redneck hillbilly trash that I remember. I bet the Hannaford employees who caused all of this barely have a 6th grade education between them.

Put down the drink for a moment angry boy! Brattleboro has lots of problems, like most American towns, however having lived in 12 states and 3 countries and traveled much more widely than that ... where in Bratt did you grow up, the areas that match what you say are maybe Mountain Home Trailer park, and definately some of the places out Elliott, Flat and South Street. But overall calling Bratt "racist, bigoted, poor white trash , etc" ? Sure, there is some, but you need to get out more. Hell, right there in DC you must not even get out much - that single town has probably 10x the junkie/thief/gangster/redneck population as all of Vermont and maybe NH too!

Travel the world, you'd be surprised at whats out there kiddo!

Recovered Objectivist-

I was describing how in spite of the passage of time since the late 80s and early 90s the racism in Brattleboro seems to have just gotten worse. Which isn't really all that surprising. And let's remember that the focus of this discussion is, in fact, Brattleboro; not other states or other countries. Have you lived in Washington DC? If you did then surely you would know that you don’t find too many rednecks, for example.
I have lived and worked abroad and continually travel the world extensively professionally and otherwise – undoubtedly more than you can ever boast.

Lastly, do you make it a habit of calling those who are different from you ‘boy’? It looks like you might have slipped up there a bit in your defense of the 'rednecks of Bratt', boy.
