Last Friday was dress-down day at Charles Carroll High School in Port Richmond - a day for students to leave their uniforms at home and wear whatever they liked.
One young woman chose to wear a shirt showing her support for Gov. Mitt Romney's presidential candidacy. Her geometry teacher didn't like it, the girl's father said on a radio call-in show on IQ 106.9 FM today.
The teacher allegedly told the girl to take off the shirt, saying it was like wearing a Ku Klux Klan sheet.

Democratic Sen. Robert Byrd, Ex-Klansman
by Michelle Malkin (March 8, 2001)
Ex-Klansman Robert Byrd, the senior senator from West Virginia, casually used the phrase "white nigger" twice on national TV this weekend. Enraged civil rights groups organized a protest campaign against Sen. Byrd and demanded that he undergo sensitivity training ... not.
The ex-Klansman, you see, is a Democrat. Democrats can join hate groups and utter the ugliest racial slurs and get away with it because they are Democrats. They belong to the party of racial tolerance and understanding. They're paragons of virtue, and the rest of us are bigoted rubes.
The ex-Klansman showed his true colors when asked by Fox News Sunday morning talk show host Tony Snow about the state of race relations in America. Sen. Byrd warned: "There are white niggers. I've seen a lot of white niggers in my time. I'm going to use that word. We just need to work together to make our country a better country, and I'd just as soon quit talking about it so much."
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia:
In 1942, 24-year-old Byrd joined the Ku Klux Klan (KKK), whose parades in Matoaka, West Virginia, he had witnessed in his childhood. He was unanimously elected Exalted Cyclops, or leader, of his local chapter.
Byrd, in his autobiography, attributed the beginnings of his political career to this incident, although he lamented that they involved the Klan. According to Byrd, a KKK official told him "You have a talent for leadership, Bob... The country needs young men like you in the leadership of the nation." Byrd recalls that "suddenly lights flashed in my mind! Someone important had recognized my abilities! I was only 23 or 24 years old, and the thought of a political career had never really hit me. But strike me that night, it did." He participated in the KKK during World War II, holding the titles Kleagle (recruiter) and Exalted Cyclops [the top officer in the local Klan unit]. He did not serve in the military during the war, working instead as a welder in a Baltimore, Maryland shipyard, where he helped build warships.
Byrd commented on the 1945 controversy about racially integrating the military. Byrd, when he was 28 years old, wrote to segregationist Senator Theodore Bilbo, of Mississippi, vowing never to serve in such a military:
"Rather I should die a thousand times, and see Old Glory trampled in the dirt never to rise again, than to see this beloved land of ours become degraded by race mongrels, a throwback to the blackest specimen from the wilds."
He had earlier written "I shall never fight in the armed forces with a Negro by my side".
YouTube - Senator Robert Byrd says "white niggers" on TV:
From the Washington Post:
"Byrd said in the Dec. 11, 1945, letter -- which would not become public for 42 more years with the publication of a book on blacks in the military during World War II by author Graham Smith -- that he would never fight in the armed forces "with a Negro by my side." Byrd added that, "Rather I should die a thousand times, and see old Glory trampled in the dirt never to rise again, than to see this beloved land of ours become degraded by race mongrels, a throwback to the blackest specimen from the wilds.."..."
"during the general election campaign, Byrd's GOP opponent uncovered a letter Byrd had handwritten to Green, the KKK Imperial Wizard, recommending a friend as a Kleagle and urging promotion of the Klan throughout the country. The letter was dated 1946 -- long after the time Byrd claimed he had lost interest in the Klan. "The Klan is needed today as never before, and I am anxious to see its rebirth here in West Virginia," Byrd wrote, according to newspaper accounts of that period. Byrd makes no mention of the letter in his new book."
According to their curriculum, it is required to take one credit (1 year) of African-American History.
I drove through Philly on Sunday on the way back from a wedding in NJ to get a cheesesteak. I used to live there. Long story short, the cheesesteak place was still there, but the entire Italian market neighborhood has now neen overrun by the Mexicans. Ironically, the cheesesteak place is the same one that made the news recently with the sign that they only serve you if you speak English. Now I see why the sign was needed. I left Philly in 2001 I dont remember any Mexican presence. That was fast. I hope the cheesesteak place can survive without the Italians patronizing and keeping the neighborhood clean and safe.
Um.....,call me crazy but I have no idea what what he’s seeing in that shirt. It just looks like a plain old ordinary campaign shirt to me.
If there’s anything Dems know, its the KKK.
Very sad. My mother grew up in Port Richmond. Of course, that was almost 100 years ago.
I looked up this school. It is very small, and I see only two math teachers listed. I hope the guilty one gets into big trouble, but I suspect he’s following the general philosophy of the rest of the school staff.
I’ll just say that if this were my kid I’d be in jail tonight and leave it at that.....
These incompetents actually believe they can make up their own laws as they go along.
Sue that moron loser personally.
Sue the school district.
Refuse to settle, demand a trial, and make sure that the hidden face of this army of Obama Flying Monkeys, the totalitarian shock troops, is seen for what they are...
