UK School Demands Mother Say Her 7-Year-Old Son is Racist
Political correctness is like a cancer festering inside liberals, infecting our society with idiocy and overly-sensitive drivel from brain-dead morons who wouldn’t know common sense if it smacked them in the face. Case in point? A UK mother was told that she had to sign a form declaring her son was racist, all because he asked a question that the school didn’t like.
In a clear case of political correctness gone wild, a mother in Britain was ordered by a school to declare her 7-year-old son guilty of racism.
The reason for the demand? The boy asked a 5-year-old classmate: “Are you brown because you come from Africa?”
… According to The Daily Mail, White “received a phone call last month to say her son had been at the centre of a ‘racist incident’.”
“She was then summoned to a meeting with Elliott, his teacher and the deputy head of Griffin Primary School in Hull,” Russell Myers wrote.
“When I arrived at the school and asked Elliott what had happened, he became extremely upset,” she said.
“He kept saying to me, ‘I was just asking a question. I didn’t mean it to be nasty’ and he was extremely distressed by it all.”
White was then asked to read the school’s rules, which includes a zero-tolerance policy on racism.
“I was told I would have to sign a form acknowledging my son had made a racist remark which would be submitted to the local education authority for further investigation,” she said.
But White refused to sign the demand and said her son was simply being inquisitive.
“He always likes to ask questions,” she said. “But that doesn’t make him a racist.”
Even the parent of the “victim” in this case finds the entire situation ludicrous and doesn’t think that Elliott was being racist, but the city council is still inexplicably standing behind the school’s decision to brand a child as a racist for no other reason than committing a thought crime. And this is an epidemic in the United Kingdom, apparently, with over 20,000 students being put on record as perpetrators of “hate crimes”, because they used words that the educators didn’t like. And while parents may complain about it, it clearly doesn’t bother them that much if this system of abuse and political correctness gone wild is being allowed to continue.
