    Elementary Principal Investigated For Blacks-Only Class Trip

    Imagine a white only field trip setup by a white principal.
    We all know that a white principal would have already been fired.

    I can't find any information on this story on MSNBC or CNN for some
    strange reason.

    Watch the slopping knee jerking crap from the Left that this one will bring out if they talk about it at all, when the 'double standard' comes out loud and clear like this one all the "do-gooders" are usually dead silent, thats why the Looney Rats over at MSNBC are silent.

    I posted this the other day and it got the same reaction on this forum as MSNBC gave it (shhhhhhhhhhhhh)

    This story doesn't bother you?

    I pisses me off big-time! This is racism. White children were excluded! What is wrong with this "teacher" and the parents who let their children go on this trip? They have to be out of their minds! What white kid wouldn't want to talk to a rocket scientist? Guess what the white kids are going to grow up thinking about black people?

    This man (?) and the school should be sued by the AG for violation of civil rights. Absurd!

    It is not about the story, it is the very tired reference to the comments about the bias of MSNBC or CNN as noted in #2 Response.. Ann Arbor Newspaper isn't exactly the Red State Press..

    Is the reference to MSNBC correct? This, IMO, is a big story...not in the sense that it effects me, but it needs to be put out there so it can't possibly happen again. I have no idea how it could have happened in the first place. This is obscene. MSNBC and FOX are biased in diffent directions. That is a fact. I would have much more respect for them if they would run a story like this. Why wouldn't they?

    I do not know, the AP, Detroit Press, local news picked it up.. maybe there is enough news for the day, no idea. CNN, MSNBC seems to have been picking up the other stories, perhaps it is triage.. in reality have no idea.

    For some folks this is page 1, for others it is page 2.. not because of the obvious racial discrimination, but because there is so much news right now..

    The original quote is from Fox News.. but this story seems to have taken a back seat away from the area it happened..

    It doesn't really matter who ran the story.

    It's just disgusting, to me. I can't believe there are adults walking around, much less teachers and school administrators, who would think this is NOT racist.

    ""It was a riskier step to take, but the staff at Dicken felt it was going to have tremendous benefit," Margolis said. "I'm guessing you won't see that again."

    She said the fallout started when the students returned from the trip and were met with boos from classmates who stayed behind. Principal Mike Madison, who is African-American, heard the commotion and came to the room to admonish the students for what she termed a "highly inappropriate" response and explain the rationale for the trip, she said.

    "Some kids who didn't go went home and said the principal got angry with them," Margolis said. "I'm sure his voice was raised because I'm sure he was very upset."

    It is in the eyes of the beholder, as my response had to do with response #2...

    They won't run it because of "the double standard" remember the Muslim business man in Michigan who's wife asked him for a divorce, he promptly went into the kitchen and got a large steak knife and then he carved his wife's head off, he said he had to do it, his religon called for it, this story lasted ONE DAY on the back page, one day, NBC never mentioned it.

    Now, Picture This, Omaha Nebraska;
    A white presbytarian stabs his wife to death because she wanted a divorce, he tells the police "God made him do it"
    This Story would have made Mush Mouth Matthews and everybody in The Obama Main Stream Media set themselves on fire, a movie would have been made out of it.

    This is a small story in that it seems to be contained to one school district. It is hideoud what happened there, for both white kids and black kids because it is just another wedge between blacks and whites. This IDIOT teacher who organized this trip has contributed to the perpetuation of racism in America. Blacks and whites are being divided when there is no reason for it. We are going backwards in ways that are unneccessary. It sucks.

    And all you care about is how NBC is not reporting it. You make it sound like FOX doesn't do the exact same thing from their POV. Your "concern" is wrong. All you care about is how FOX does against MSNBC. That's as much of a problem as what the teacher did to his kids...remember them?

    I caught the broadcast of this story on the local fox news last night.

    They said that a white child asked the black principal why they were not
    allowed to go on the field trip.

    The principal told them that blacks had suffered far worse losses for many
    many years.

    How does ths man still have a job??????
    Oh yeah..... Now I remember....

    I agree lately Fox is startting to get in on the double standard also, I only used NBC because they seem to be the worst offenders when it comes to 'telling it like it is' instead of using NBC I should have simply said "THE MEDIA"

    I think we all know that America's News Media has a Bias when it comes to Balck/Brown/White, don't they?

    IT'S STILL "RACISM"

    Here is his letter in response:

    Appears it was a well planned trip ... parents who are involved in their kids education easily would have known about it beforehand.

    The trip was based on "skin color" thats Racist.

    It did not sound like the parents had any input to the principal's racist
    decision.

    None of these young black childern ever had to sit at the back of the
    bus.

    None of them will ever be told that they cannot vote.

    Some of them will receive the benefits of affirmative action.

    What about the poor white kids???

    I am sure there were a few white kids from one parent homes left at
    school that day.

    They will never receive any benefits based on their race.

    If anyone ever started a college fund just for those white kids, it
    would be huge news.

    As the "united negro college fund" continues to collect money.
    How much money do they give white kids?

    I am tired of the double standard.

    Treat all people equal !
