Ladue High students walk-out in protest of racial inequality

The St. Louis County NAACP confirms they will meet on Friday with Ladue School District leaders about racial incidents being reported at Ladue High School.


Last week, a black student said a white student told her to go to the back of the bus now that Donald Trump is president. The school says they disciplined the student. Some say suspension was not enough.

But wait.  Three days ago, Twitter was full of tweets from twits about the evils of suspending kids from school.

A shindig I’m sure the NAACP loved.

I guess in a matter of three days, they forgot all about that school-to-prison pipeline.

Or, maybe, just maybe, I’m using the occasion of this post and all the snark therein to drop a hint or three about a thing or three.

The glue gun story didnt emerge on faceberg until AFTER the racial incidents. Suspicious.

Its funny how we have to talk about a kid fooling around with a glue gun in art classes and late-reported 3rd degree burns ENDLESSLY but if I even BRING UP the torture and death of Channon Christian and Christopher Newsom *I’m* a racist. (((rigged system)))

“they’re making remarks because they think it’s okay” – Time to enforce that whole freedom of speech thing we’ve got.

“The few number of African American teachers at the high school is unacceptable” – the chaser I believe.

I’m surprised the Ladue district is as black as it is in terms of students. It must be the bussed in students from deseg, which was supposed to have ended by now.

I thought in cases like this the students were supposed to talk it out “Restorative Justice” style?

I guess that only works in the case of 5 on one beatings.
