Race Card Is Double-Sided

| Learning | September 20, 2016

(A seventh grader, who is black, is sitting in the front office after being accused of stealing something that belonged to another student. He is waiting on his parents to come pick him up.)

Student: *muttering – verbatim* “This isn’t fair. I didn’t do nothing.” *louder* “Man, y’all are racist.”

School Safety Officer: *who is white* “Well, when your parents get here, explain what happened.”

Student: “Man, my parents aren’t gonna believe me anyway.”

School Safety Officer: “What, are they racist, too?”

(The kid stopped complaining.)
