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.

Thanks. I know how to spell this guy’s name but I haven’t a clue as to how to pronounce it. But he definitely should be terminated.

White pride is good. It’s only racist to narrow minded people who think white people should hate their race. I bet this bigoted principal has pride in his people. The kid should sue him into poverty.

University of Washington and Wisconsin students make a “W” with their fingers all the time. They need to stop flashing those gang signs.

In my town that “W” hand sign stands for “Westside,” a predominantly Hispanic gang.

I hope the kid owns the school on this one. His future earning potential is at stake given his talent.

Aiddy Phomvisay should be removed as principal for his absurd and means-spirited actions and his virulent racism. Even the letter W become a racist symbol to tis bigot. It would not shock me if he will demand that "white" can no longr be a school color.

Whose bright idea was to hired Aiddy? They should fire him quickly.

Why don’t they just make it illegal to be white? Line us all up in front of firing squads and shoot us. I know they want to.

This picture alone should probably end any hope of the school winning a lawsuit!

I have always preferred white in clothing. You can easily tell if it is clean! LOL

All white wedding, white house, little girls in white dresses...Winter white wool in the winter...on and on for all these years...If I checked the closet I would find at least 10 pairs of white slacks/shorts etc.

60 years since that wedding and still wearing white...when red/white/ and blue are not the colors of the day!

I wonder if I could help this kid in his proof that WHITE is not racist?

It's "kreepy azz kracka", to be exact. A good friend of mine told me that. You should've seen it when he called me that on the elevator a few months back. The reaction of the others was hilarious.

It all started during the Zimmerman trial. After Rachel's testimony, I went to his office and said "I thought we're friends, man. But you've never called me a creepy ass cracker". lol
