'White Girls Club' at Franklin High School Forced To Go To Counseling
The Cranford Chronicle ^ | updated May 10, 2013 at 1:17 PM | By Meghan D. Hodgin

The Franklin Township Board of Education completed its investigation of allegations of racism among a group of girls called the "White Girls Club" at Franklin High School.

Superintendent of Schools Edward Q. Seto announced Thursday night that the board of education had completed its investigation into the so-called "White Girls Club" at Franklin High School, stating that all participants involved were required to go to counseling.

"In the matter of the social media incident that was recorded in the newspaper two weeks ago, an investigation was conducted," Seto said, referring to a Home News Tribune article printed last month that reported a group of girls posted "racially insensitive comments and photos" on social media sites.

A high school student sent the Home News Tribune a series of screen shots of Tweets by members of the club each posing with three fingers creating a "W" — apparently to symbolize "white," with the hashtag "#wgc," the paper reported.

A girl also allegedly retweeted a tweet sent out by a boy that said "the hallways in the high school," and featured a photo of a group of monkeys or chimpanzees. He also posted a photo on Twitter of the Confederate flag hanging on a wall near bleachers of a gym with the Twitter message "south will rise again," the report said. That students tweets indicated he might have been suspended, the report said.

Board president Julia M. Presley told NJ.com last month that school officials had not determined at the time whether the suspended student was connected to the "White Girls Club."

While I wouldn’t join, if you allow black girls’ clubs and Indian American people clubs, why no white girl club? It is only fair.

Either we can gather on racial or sexual attributes, or we can’t.

So, would a “black girls club” be forced into counseling?

“”the hallways in the high school,” and featured a photo of a group of monkeys or chimpanzees.”

What a ridiculous comparison! Groups of monkeys or chimpanzees have some semblance of social order.

How can they be forced into counseling.

Have they broken a law?
Have they been convicted in a court?
What school board has a right to sentence girls to Counseling?
Where are the parents, ? Whoever thought this up would be facing an angry Dad if I were in this neighborhood.
Is this even Constitutional? What can they do if the parents tell them to go screw themselves? Is ita subject they can expel a white girl on? If so lets do some expelling of blacks and Hispanic racists.

Every white girl in the city should join the White Girls Club. Just to piss off the nanny clowns.

The USSR often used shrinks as a form of political punishment.

They also would used military door 2 door searches, too, as in Boston.

It would be a hilarious man-on-the-street interview to go around asking people, “Do you agree with the values of the Congressional White Caucus? Who are some of the members you know?”.

We currently live behind the Iron Curtain.

This is exactly what the Soviets satellites did.

Next comes the clubs meeting area is not up to Fire Code.

Deadra R. Sanders, of the Somerset section of Franklin, said parents want a detailed report surrounding the investigation into the White Girls Club.

“The community needs a report. I understand names will be eliminated, but maybe specifics — what has been done? What is the followup? The public needs to know,” she said. “I understand that that’s a good thing that they want to move on and put it behind them — but we want to use it as a teachable moment.”


Hey, Deadra, if you’re that concerned about racism and teachable momnets, how about using one of the countless Mahogany Mob attacks of innocent white and Asian people as a teachable moment to “teens” that it’s wrong to attack people.

Will the counseling be done by someone from the Black Student Union or the Black Affairs Advisory Counsel?

Just curious.

Not sure what to think of this. This sounds more like an informal private thing that’s been outed.

There is controversy at Towson State about an official group called White Student Union. Their defense is simply that there is a Black Student Union - as there is everywhere!

At my job, I have been seeing signs for various groups at the elevators: blacks, Asians, homosexuals, women etc.

I keep wondering how long I would survive if proposed a white man’s group.

This is NJ. It has the strictest law in the country regarding “ bullying,” 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, on or off campus.

I don’t know whether it is constitutional or not, but the law has been upheld on a couple of occasions.

Exactly. What business is it of the school what happens on Twitter?

My guess is the school handbook has policies that restrict what students can do on Facebook and Twitter.

Even if these social media activities happen after school.

Yea, but the rationale was priceless:

The Socialist State was perfect

Ergo you would have to be crazy to oppose Perfection

Therefore, all dissidents were suspected of being Insane

Thus you end up in nuthouse with little white jacket

Isn't Communism Grand?

Now add the knuckledragging dimwittedness of the OThugbo administration, and you'll have yourself one of the most stupefying nightmares of all time

Think thousands of petty tyrant clones of Eric Holder

There is a Black Chamber of Commerce in Oakland, official street signs pointing the way and everything.

I don’t know where the White Chamber of Commerce is.

Yes, a 3-digit “W” is really, really racially insensitive!

Actually, when my daughter was in school there was a ‘joke’ “white girls club” with about half dozen members who were about as white/pale as it gets. These are the girls who can’t go to the beach in summertime. I guess if it were today they’d be in counseling or suspended or expelled.

WHO put these school administrators in charge?

Sticks and stones. Back in my day, 50 years ago, there was an exclusive little girls’ club at our school called “The GAY Teens”. Very exclusive. In retrospect, hee hee, it WAS a fitting and unfortunate name. Thankful to have been “excluded”, but at the time, of course, not being invited to join was heartbreaking. - Now, I’m glad to say, “I was NOT a gay teen.” - Back then, bullying took many sinister and sneaky forms.

Notice you won’t see a White Woman’s Group at work, either.

White is absolutely taboo.

Incidents like this is where I fault conservatives. Instead of cow-towing to the liberal Nazis, 10,000 conservatives need to organize and attend the schoolboard meeting. Demand the resignation of the schoolboard, the principal and administrator.

If you can’t get organized enough to protect your children from these Nazis, you deserve every misery visited on you and your families.

Franklin High School is only 22% white. Based on that fact, I'm going to guess the school administration is entirely Democrat, and almost entirely non-white.

The "White Girls Club" was lucky they weren't beaten to death.

Maybe the White Girls Club should look for a different educational venue next year, i.e., distance learning.

Oh yeah! Fifty years ago, the word “gay” still meant “happy” and “carefree”. They were actually by and large a bunch of stuck up, spoiled girls who delighted in excluding us “poor” girls who didn’t “belong” in THEIR clique. - The joke’s; however, on them. I think they learned that it was a big world out there; although they may not have ever really made any adjustments. That little world was their oyster, and, in retrospect, they don’t brag any these days about being former members of the “GAY Teens”.
