Redneck Day Denounced as Racist Against Blacks


You probably thought rednecks were the one group our liberal masters would allow us to make fun of. Wrong. True enough, no one cares about white folks in Jesusland, but the tender feelings of blacks are always a top priority. See if you can make sense of this:

When members of the student council at an Arizona high school organized a schoolwide “Redneck Day” and encouraged classmates to dress — and spoof — accordingly, they hoped to build school spirit leading up to prom week.

Instead, “Redneck Day” at Queen Creek High School has angered African-Americans and civil-rights leaders and touched off a debate about free speech, social stereotypes and good taste.

Tom Lindsey, superintendent of the Queen Creek Unified School District, said the only intent of Wednesday’s event was to satirize the A&E reality TV show “Duck Dynasty,” which follows a family of duck hunters and entrepreneurs from West Monroe, La.

But some students and their family members weren’t amused. Among them: the Rev. Ozetta Kirby, pastor of Holy Trinity Community AME Church in Mesa and vice president of the East Valley chapter of the NAACP.

“I’m sitting here crying and praying,” said Kirby, whose grandson Marcus Still is a 16-year-old junior at the school.

“This thing really got to Marcus,” Kirby said. “When you’re in 11th grade, that can break you down and make you feel at the bottom rung of the whole society, where everybody is being jubilant. No kid should have to go through that. We all know the connotation of ‘redneck.’ “

No we don’t. So Kirby spells it out:

Most offensive to Kirby and others was that one student chose to wear a Confederate flag — for many a grim reminder of slavery and segregation.

This illustrates how desperate a certain fawned-over “victim” group is to find something to pretend to be offended about.

“The Confederacy represents the horrible institution of slavery, and that is a direct attack on African-Americans,” said Steve Montoya, a prominent civil-rights attorney in Phoenix.

Montoya’s past achievements include successfully suing Tempe Union High School District for having students read the literary classic Huckleberry Fin, which contains the forbidden N word.

If we keep moving, they will keep pushing, until our entire culture goes over a cliff.

New Silicon Graffiti Video: ‘The Cold Civil War’

In 2007, author William Gibson wrote the phrase the “Cold Civil War” for one of his science fiction novels. That led blogger April Gavaza, also known as the “Hyacinth Girl,” as well as Mark Steyn to pick up on the concept a year later. But of course, as General McChrystal’s disastrous interview with Rolling Stone and his subsequent dismissal illustrates, the media isn’t just where wars are fought domestically, as we discuss in the latest edition of our Silicon Graffiti video blog
