I think the media may be blowing the story out of proportion.

Too late reconquista already happened you'd be safer hiding in Rembert SC.

All patriots should be happy to know the original reconquista drove the Muslims from Spain, so see you may have some common ground.

I don't get it? State Sen. Gloria Romero says the incident is "blatant racism"??? How is this racism? How are stupid names like "Tay Tay Shaniqua, Crisphy Nanos & Laquan White" racist or of a racial connotation? How are these racially charged names? They seem like a joke. Who in the world thinks "Chisphy Nanos" is racial in nature? And...if by chance these names were put in the yearbook by a "person of color" do they maintain their "blatant racism"?

All this because one or two students did a stupid prank. The school faculty offered solutions, stickers, refunds, possible reprints. The school faculty is being called dismissive and unconcerned. The opposition wants the school faculty and 96% of the students to say they are all inherently evil and a bunch of racists.

Also, does anyone really think the adult school faculty working on the yearboook actually condoned the printing of spoofed names? These adults merely love working with kids, were too trusting, and are involed in side projects like the yearbook simply because it will look good on their resumes for career advancement.

The student (s) responseble should be not be allowed to attend their current High School next semester as punishment for thier actions. Also to write an open letter of apology to all those affected.

The spoofed names that appeared in the yearbook must have appeared to look like typical Black names just prior to going to print. The names were not something blatantly offensive like "jiggaboo" or "spook" or "the N word." If the names did appear like this, then yes, I see a big problem.

Black names can be variations on traditional names or vatiations on other Black names. How would the final editor know Crisphy Nanos or Tay Tay or Toi Toi wasnt a real name? This is a suburban school, the Black students are only 4% of the school`s population, Blacks are very new to the area, and it cant be expected that every adult working on the yearbook is expected to be an expert on Black culture or Black names.
