    Riots at my highschool...

    Okay, as some of you know I'm a freshman in an East Texas high school.Today, a kid in a wood shop class said, "I hate f-ing *racial slur*," and was overheard by a few black students. They immediately jump in his face ready to fight, and are eventually restrained. Half an hour later, the entire black student body wants this kid's head. The kid has a science class sixth period and there are people trying to pull him out of the class, so after sixth period I walk near my locker and the whole school is there. Coaches, everywhere, escorting this kid through the mob of kids while being struck and thrown at. The only person at the school that knows discipline is not going to be in school tommorow, so I'm expecting a full-fledged riot. I think I'll just stay outta this one.:hide:

    Anyways I just thought I'd share, and I'll give an update tommorow.

    Good point. My post is pointless, now that I think about it.

    he deserves a good *** beating. but i really doubt there will be a riot. that would require a large number of students sticking up for him. which i doubt would happen. then again, you are in texas.

    East Texas isn't exactly the deep south, just so ya know. If there were to be a riot, it wouldn't be people sticking up for him because of his racist beliefs, but because he's their friend, and people have blind loyalty in high school.

    If this really comes to a riot, there are definitely some more serious issues at your school that have been festering for a long time.

    That kid obviously lacks survival instincts.

    Just in high school?

    United Statsians are inherently more and more racist as time flows...

    Conflict is inevitable when you have a large amount of people stacked together in a relatively small area. Especially when there are different ethnical groups running around.

    Although, in defense of the racist boy, black people... or "african americans" as the people in politics call them... are EXTREMELY racist to other ethnic groups, so it stands to reason that they take the most heat , seeing as how, vox populi states that for each finger that you point , 4 will be pointed right back at you.

    A good solution would be to have everyone dragged from their houses and be beaten senseless with a history book... does no one learn from the mistakes made in the past?

    The racist remark made by the boy was wrong, but reacting that way only serves to fuel the flame.... if they had left it alone, he would suffer some punishment, but since they are all over him, he is essentially a martyr.

    You'll have no problem proving that, then. Get to it.

    Well you cant let them beat him, can you? And you cant expect that the insulted persons to just sit back and relax... I mean, would you? I myself try to deal with problems myself. I hate people who turn to teachers as soon as they are flamed... It just prooves that they are incapable of defending themselves, so they become even more vulnarable.

    I'm just interested in what this Utopian Society is that Archedgar is throwing rocks at the US from.

    There you go again with the United Statsians crap. And no, the racism isn't getting worse, it's just percieved that way. As racism fades out as a whole, individual cases like this one seem much worse as they are a stark contrast to the norm.

    I agree with you there, but it shouldn't be on the scale of a riot, otherwise the nightly news would be non-stop Royal Rumbles at high schools. Isolated incidents are not a big deal as long as they don't escalate. But in this case, the problem isn't caused just by a difference of opinion or something of the like, it's caused by bigotry.

    I wouldn't say all black people are very racist, but there are certainly groups of them who are, but you can say that about any race.

    Somehow, I don't think dragging people is a good solution to racism.

    Very good point right there though.

    The dragging from their houses and being beaten with a book comment was a joke...


    Yes, I would. They're just words... I am not weak enough to be manipulated so easily that with a few words I would resort to violence and likely get myself into serious trouble with the local authorities.

    Now... if the racist boy had somehow physically attacked the other person, or even just provoked them with a push or a shove, then he would be perfectly justified in decking the aggresor...

    Not all black people are racist... however, the majority of them are.

    I have a friend who works as a cashier in a relatively popular store... she's told me that in the rare occasions when a black person buys something, she has to "not count" the money that she is payed with.

    Apparently black people almost always take immediate offense if she counts it, claiming it to be hardcore racism, allegedly due to her not trusting people of "color" ...

    That's one of many examples. I don't claim that there are no, exceptional black men, just that they have a high tendancy to be racist themselves. I don't understand this concept ... how is it that the people who are most racist, are most sensitive to racial comments themselves?


    This strikes me as rather similar to the D2x question: How is it that the people who use all sorts of hacks and glitches online... cry the loudest when they get screwed over in a trade hack or scam?
