The poor white people were the slaves. Were I am from Blacks and Whites are respectful to each other but in Arkansas please y'all are so worked up about who owes who its a shame! I was not raised to see color but aside from color some of the blacks not all of them because I know plenty who are not racist but some still have a chip on there shoulder! And as far as I know nobody who is an elderly person that I have ever met had a slave! I mean come on people I hate this racial crap, that's why all these small towns are so divided, because the whites still act like they own everything and the black's act like they owe them everything. Its plain to see so if my comment offends you well sorry but it is true and I am not even from this state I moved here a few years back. Y'all have got to stop pulling the race issue in everything and by y'all I mean white and black.
Please where did you come from I want to live where all people respect others.....I am so tired of the type thing .

History is for the history books. Teach what happened but stop living it. No one alive today is or has been a slave or slave owner. Stop teaching past hatrid to all children. Yes white slaves were treated badly too just weren't bought from their own people and sold as slaves. Every generation has problems, work together to solve them. The Jews and native American Indians were treated worse but don't live soley in the past..they moved forward.
Yep the Native American should whoop some butt big time but they are more of a peaceful nature...thank God. Not every body can live mad and full of hate forever.

Well I be damnned! Tell the truth and shame the devil, I never new this side of Tammie and Don!
You obviously know them well or you wouldn't have spelled her name like that. You should also be ashamed of yourself. Because if you are that close, then you also know that they have raised a fine young man that doesn't have a racist bone in his body! Tammie and Don were both excellent teachers in the public schools. If they were racist, they would have chosen to work in a private school and sent their kids to private schools so that they wouldn't have to put up with this bullshit! Shame on you for posting this.

I would like to say that no one said that they were racist! That is your misunderstanding! So don't jump on "One of a Kind!" What do you mean when you say, "If they were racist, they would have chosen to work in a private school and sent their kids to private schools so that they wouldn't have to put up with this bullshit!" Do private schools only accept WHITE students? I believe a private school will accept any student if they have the "Green" money to pay the tuition! Regardless, of how you want to protect your friends names(spellings and all)the fact remains that these children,who were raised "Properly",learned their behaviors from somewhere! Let's face the facts! Their child may not be a racist, but his actions spoke louder than words! As for your comment about putting up with BULLSHIT, I would like for you to clearify the statement. What BULLSHIT are they putting up with? Is it having to apologize, suffering consequences, dealing with embarrassment, or facing the truth. Whatever the BULLSHIT is, it defiently does not compare to the life long embarrassment, truth, lies,or consequences that the bullied student will have to carry around the remainder of his life. SHAME ON YOU!

According to the Wynne Superintendent there was not a noose involved and no one had been dragged by their neck. No visible marks on any student. Sounds like locker room horseplay.

People are acting like there was 7 white kids standing around one black kid that was hanging by a noose? If someone put a noose around your neck theRe would be some marks.

Remember there was never a noose involved anywhere. These kids, white and black, have no idea what a noose is supposed to represent. In case you didn't know a noose around the neck scares white people too.

The only thing he(victim) is embarrassed about, is the behavior the adults in/around the whole situation are showing. He apologized to Paxton for their behavior. He and Pax were and still are friends. He has spent the night at Paxton's house before. He ate supper with them last week. Don't believe me? Ask him! You people need to stop trying to DESTROY the friendships of all of these kids. This generation has come ALONG WAY! Stop messing it up for them because of your ********** brains!!!

I have heard enough from many high school kids that I do not believe there was any mean intent involved in this incident. Poor judgement, definetly, but this situation has been exploited by adults so badly and will continue to be on this website. Hopefully, all will learn from this and the people of Wynne can go about putting this in the past. My own high school children are amazed at how this whole thing has grown into such a dividing issue among adults who aren't even in school. They have friends who are black, hispanic, and asian and they all get along fine and are always welcome in our home. We should learn from their example.

And by airing their dirty laundry on a site like Topix, you brought yourself down to the level you think they're on. Shame!

I am not surprised by the incident that took place in WYNNE! I am however surprised by the way the parents half-heartedly issued an apology! Two of the students that were involved have parents who are, or were in high positions in a neighboring school district. These individuals have decided, or administered severe punishments to children within a neighboring school district, but did not want the same punishments extended to their children. For example, Tammie and Don, I am surprised that you all are not pressing the issue of proper supervision of your children, or at the very least filing a CODE OF ETHICS complaint against the school staff member who left your child unattended long enough, for him to tie a noose around another students neck and drag him around the gym floor, or better yet why not have him placed in ALE for the remainder of the school term? I expect more from these two parents because ,Tammie is a principal in a neighboring school district and Don was once a coach there, so they know the discipline procedures quiet well. Now Justin and Jessica Johnson are another story. Justin, a recently resigned school board member, from the same neighboring town, has to keep his eye on his sticky fingered wife. Jessica was once apart of the PTO at the school where Tammie is now principal. During the time that she was on the PTO, Jessica stole upwards of $10,000(she didn't leave a penny behind) and was never arrested or convicted because her husband, Justin was on the school board! Did I mention that Don and Justin also worked side by side at Farm Bureau for many years. Probably sharing stories of “Noose Tying!” I have overheard The JOHNSON'S talk about other kids within the community that they once lived. They expressed great dislike because a child didn't act a certain way, or follow the rules the way that they thought the child should. Jessica just recently was arrested in the neighboring town for stealing again! She tried to hide it by using her maiden name BUSBY and changing her age to 40, when it was published in the local newspaper. The JOHNSON'S like to play high and mighty, but are no more that loose lipped, money grubbing, lying idiots! I wonder how is it that the boys were suspended from school, but played in a football game earlier this week. Justin's son even acknowledged that he was one of the student's involved in the incident, and continued to play as if there was nothing wrong. SHAME ON YOU! Why does TAMMIE work and earn a living in a school system that is not good enough for her children to attend? Justin helped make decisions that allowed a school system to fail, and when the going got tough he quit and ran away! I'm personally glad you decided that our school system was to run down and raggedy for your children. That decision probably saved our kids from the “NEW GENERATION LYNCHING” that your children attempted to carry out. P.S. PLEASE DON'T BRING THEM BACK TO OUR SCHOOLS! We can do bad all by ourselves

The issue now is the Wynne School Board did not support the recommendation of the white Superintendent. They forced out the last superintendent who was of color. If you look at their history they expel many students of color for fighting , minor drug possession, even being disrupted in class. Now their greatest love "the football team" is in trouble. There was a hate crime being portrayed in the locker room.( horse play or not). What is the student's next hurt or killed in the "playing" what would be happening to those boys. Arrested for murder and federal hate crime charged. The board's action sends a horrible message. Students of color are not safe at Wynne schools and athletes are allowed to bully and intimidate at what ever cost to ensure a winning season.

All students involved should of been expelled, the team should be suspended from play for the remainder of the year with forfeits and they need to participate in several sensitivity trainings.

The coaches should be reported to the ethics board for review of there actions.

Sad day in Wynne schools.
You are so right about all students involved should be expelled. That said, why was the black student not expelled since he admitted that he was participating in the same horseplay with the white students??? That is truly the only way that would be fair to all involved and would not be considered racial by anyone with the slightest bit of common sense.

Maybe she can help pay their legal fees if charges are files when the families sue for slander and malicious prosecution. I'm sure the Bell family will need her help when the truth comes out, and it will eventually. Or are you going to expect your son to lie to the police so that you can collect a
Check???? I believe he has tried to tell the truth several times yet you have stopped him . Apparently he is a good kid who believes in telling the truth in spite of those who raised him . I feel sorry for him being put in this difficult position by his own mother.
