So, in your estimation, it is better to teach a child hatred than nothing at all. Lovely. We are doomed.
According to the article, teachers “had a replica noose and explained why it is such a symbol of racism. They also allowed the children to carry chains and shackles.”
Allowed? Are we expected to believe that these kindergartners brought chains and shackles with them to school? No, they were handed these props and told to march with them.
Absolutely shameful. The teachers involved in this teaching of hatred to innocent children should be fired immediately. The principal should also be fired.
And, the grandmother with the sheer stupidity to slip a noose around the neck of her 6-year-old granddaughter should lose her right to be around ANY child with supervision.
My granddaughter is in kindergarten and visited
today. We picked apples from the tree, put them
in a basket, and brought them into the kitchen
where her grandmother made an apple pie while
the little girl helped. That is the kind of
thing grandmothers do.
When a grandmother subjects a grandchild to the
antics described it is nothing less than child
abuse. It is no less a manipulation of the
child's psyche than the more commonly villified
forms we read aobut in the newspapers.
We are children but for a short time in life and
it is tragic when people, presumably adults,
literally steal their innocence in order to
fulfill their own misshapen needs.
What occurred was a shameful tragedy.
