A cold day at Amherst Regional High School
My first inclination was to ignore the tip that arrived early this morning in my inbox because obviously the perp (not my tipster) is only looking for attention, and racial incidents in a progressive little college town like Amherst can bring w-a-y more attention than they truly deserve.
But I share Principal Jackson's frustration. And this swift public release of information is in stark contrast to the way school officials handled the recent incident of racial bullying which didn't fit the Politically Correct profile because it was black on white.
Yes this current incident involves the same teacher of color who was targeted back in October, although school officials thought it prudent to cover it up until mid-February, releasing the shameful story during "Warrior Week".
After this current incident, you have to wonder about the effectiveness of "Warrior Week" -- or any of the other measures undertaken over the past six weeks.
The "N-word". Depends who is using it?
