Principal Calls Student Racist Because He Wore White, Made W Sign During SCHOOL SPIRIT WEEK
Daily Caller ^ | 7-17-2014 | Eric Owens

Posted on 07/17/2014 5:15:04 PM PDT by equalator

A star high school athlete in rural Marshalltown, Iowa has been suspended for three football games this fall because he posted a social media image of himself enthusiastically festooned from head to toe in white clothing during school spirit week. In the photo, he made the letter “W” with his hands — which in this case stands for white. “The actual school chose the colors that each grade would be wearing,” Cathy Van Staalduine explained. “Juniors wore white. So Blair, of course, being active in the school, dressed from head to toe in white.”

She noted emphatically that the “W” sign was for the color her son was assigned.

“Blair says if they were wearing orange, they would have done an ‘O,’” she said.

What’s wrong with being white?

Would there be a problem with black pride, or brown pride?

Or yellow pride?

How in the world could ANYONE know what this "W" stands for? How could anyone punish a person for an imaginary offense? "W" could stand for GWB, for all they know - and that would be protected political speech.

If this guy had dressed in a chimp suit with a big “W” and flashed the “Hook ‘em ‘Horns” sign, leftist media hacks would be lauding him and interviewing him 24/7.

Don’t even bother pointing the hypocrisy of the left. It’s a given at this point. After all their flag is the “double standard”.

You can’t make this stuff up. The family should sue the school and the apparently low-IQ principle whether he apologizes or not. What kind of rock did that disgusting creature crawl out of anyhow.

Something seems wrong about this story. Is there an update? Has the School Board reversed the decision when they realized they chose the colors?

I do not see the parents just accepting this.

IF he is a racist, what’s the punishment for this “philosophy? Expulsion from school? No schooling, no job. Racism is a thought crime. If he didn’t threaten anybody then what about 1st Amendment rights? This stinks to high heaven.

Went on-line and found that the Board President is Sherm Welker, phone 641/753-7051 or 641/753-0100. Superintendent of Schools is Marvin Wade 641/754-1000.

I do intend to call them both bright and early Friday

The school has doubled down on their charge, based on what is on the front page of the website at the link.
