I'm surprised no actual students were interviewed for this article.

All that politically correct multicultural nonsense probably did more harm than good.

Did Brattleboro fix Martin Luther King’s holiday....is MLK’s day a town holiday? The disgrace started over the town giving parking tickets out on MLK’s day...and all the other federal holidays were exempt from getting parking tickets.

So when was MLK’s federal holiday made a Brattleboro holiday?

We all love little babies and grade school children, but those same kids become teenagers. has anyone not noticed that Brattleboro suffers more from teen discrimination then it does racism. Why is our community not addressing the more prevalent issue?

Interesting point you make "snap", speaking from experience I recall people going out of their way to exclaim over my mixed race child as an infant and toddler, but now as a teenager looking more man than child he has told me about being made to feel uncomfortable by many, especially when he is in retail establishments. I think you are missing the point a bit though because the hate group which surfaced - their very name indicated their goal, killing students of color, which IMO is much more severe than age based discrimination...Brattleboro has several issues it must address and while I agree with you there is age based discrimination in this town that when student threaten to kill other students that needs to take precedence...

The students who are responsible for this behavior only do so within the safety of their small racist town. Drop off these poor white trash Vermont rednecks in SE Washington DC. They wouldn't last 10 minutes. Their equally poor white trash Vermont redneck parents and families can come and retrieve their what's left of them from the sidewalk.
