Report Card Versus The Race Card

| CO, USA | Learning | August 15, 2015

(My mother is the Dean of Students in my school. At the end of the day, my mom asks for me to load up the car so we can go home. Half-way there, I remember that I forgot my trumpet. Knowing it would be easier to grab it while I can, I put down my stuff in the grass out of the other students’ way. My stuff includes my backpack filled with books, my mom’s computer, and some important papers my mom has to do at home among many other things. When I come back, I catch a PARENT KICKING AND THROWING some of my stuff around. I am Caucasian, and this parent is Hispanic.)

Me: “Hey, hey, hey! Ma’am, what are you DOING!?”

Parent: “THAT’S FOR SUSPENDING MY SON, YOU SON OF A B****! HE DIDN’T DO ANYTHING WRONG!”

Me: “I’m sorry that your son got suspended, ma’am, but first of all, throwing around my things and my mother’s things is COMPLETELY uncalled for. Second of all, please go speak with my mother if you need something.”

Parent: “BUT YOU’RE THE ONE WHO SUSPENDED HIM, YOU C***! YOU F*****G SENT HIM HOME FOR ABSOLUTELY NOTHING!”

(At this point, I realize this woman thinks I’m my mother. But before I can tell her I’m not, the principal comes over to see what’s wrong.)

Principal: “What’s happening over here?”

Parent: “YOUR STAFF IS RACIST AND DISRESPECTFUL AND NOTHING BUT A SAD LUMP OF S***! YOU’RE ALL NOTHING BUT A BUNCH OF RACIST WHITE D***HEADS!”

Principal: “Ma’am, you’re the mother of [Name], right?”

Parent: “F*** YEAH, I AM!”

Principal: “We suspended your son for a reason. He sold cigarettes on school premises, started a fist-fight, and then proceeded to ditch class to go to a skate-park. Now, I know you feel angry towards us, but suspending him for two weeks was much better than sending him to the police station to be arrested for assault and drug-possession. If anything, I should be calling the police right now because you have damaged my coworker’s and her daughter’s things, as well as done nothing but yelled profanity in front of children for the past five minutes.”

Parent: *sputtering angrily* “YOU… YOU… RACIST… C***!”

Principal: “Ma’am, take a look around you. Over 85% of our student population is Hispanic, just like you. If we were racist c***s like you say, then we could have chosen dozens of other schools to work at instead of this one. If we were racist, I would be screaming back at you. But I’m not. Please leave the school premises.”

(The parent continued to scream more profanities in Spanish as she ran back to her car, managing to kick my stuff one more time before she got in her car and sped off, almost hitting a passing student.)
