Student Refuses To Say “Racist” Pledge Of Allegiance & Threatens Teacher. District Responds By Firing Teacher.

A substitute teacher (who also happens to be a Cuban-American) was going about normal start of the day business by having the class recite the Pledge of Allegiance. One 11-year old student refused, saying the pledge was racist. The student is said to have then threatened to beat the teacher and called the entire school racist. Fast-forward 72 hours. The student’s mother saddles up with legal help from a nonprofit group and the substitute teacher is fired.

An 11-year-old Florida student was arrested for allegedly threatening to beat his teacher because he refused to recite the Pledge of Allegiance, calling the pledge “racist” to black people.

The alleged incident began when a substitute teacher asked the student to stand for the pledge.

The student, who usually does not stand for the pledge, replied that he would not participate in the Pledge of Allegiance because he believed the American flag is racist and the national anthem is offensive towards black people.

The substitute teacher pushed back, telling district officials she told the student, “Why if it was so bad here, he did not go to another place to live.”

“They brought me here,” the boy reportedly replied.

“Well you can always go back, because I came here from Cuba and the day I feel I’m not welcome here anymore I would find another place to live,” the teacher then reportedly answered, before calling in other school officials to deal with the student.

Things escalated when the boy allegedly refused to follow school officials’ orders, called them racists, threatened to beat the teacher and get the school officials fired, according to the arrest affidavit.

According to the school’s student handbook, students can opt out of the pledge with written permission from a parent or guardian. But a spokesperson for the school said the substitute teacher was not aware of the policy.

The district also told the substitute teacher she could no longer work at any schools within the district.


 

Detroit Moving To Remove Ben Carson’s Name From City High School Named In His Honor?

The anti-Trump hatred among the elites continues to grow and grow across America. This time it is Ben Carson’s home city of Detroit where he was once applauded as an example of a poor child raised by a single mother who went on to become one of the most celebrated neurosurgeons in the world. A book deal followed, then a Hollywood film, and a high school named in Mr. Carson’s honor. Today, Detroit ‘leaders’ are moving to strip that high school of Ben Carson’s name for nothing more than Carson’s ongoing support of the Trump administration. 

Via Fox News:

The name of Housing and Urban Development Secretary Ben Carson could be removed from a high school in his hometown of Detroit now that a state-appointed emergency manager no longer oversees the city’s Board of Education, according to reports.

The board voted 6-1 Tuesday to begin soliciting public opinion on whether the name of the Benjamin Carson High School of Science and Medicine – as well as some other schools in the district – should be changed.

The Carson school was named for the former neurosurgeon and Republican presidential candidate before he became a member of President Trump’s Cabinet, the Detroit Free Press reported.

Board member LaMar Lemmons told the Detroit News that those now backing a name change “don’t support the (Trump) administration.”

It’s liberal moral dyslexia at its worst. During the Obama years, black unemployment in America skyrocketed. Black families lost jobs, lost their homes, and lost hope. Less than two years into the Trump presidency and Black unemployment is at record lows, new Black-owned business startups are at record highs. Jobs, homes, and hope are returning to Black communities all across America and yet these city ‘leaders’ claim to not support the Trump administration and wish to punish a kind and brilliant man like Dr. Ben Carson, one of their own who succeeded despite overwhelming societal obstacles. What they are doing is akin to strapping him to a tree and lashing his back for daring to leave the Democrat plantation.

Appalling.
