If you were a Hispanic student in this Idaho school, and one of your teachers dressed up as a Hispanic stereotype to mock you,

 I doubt that you would find that amusing.

As a child, Not only would you be offended,

but you might very well be frightened and suffer a loss of self-esteem.

Making fun of children's ethnicity in their own classroom is not really very funny.

And yes, unfortunately there were a number of Hispanic students in the school  who had to witness this ugliness.

These insensitive teachers have been placed on administrative leave in the wake of a further investigation.

 

A lot of things may seem funny when you're not the Target or the victim of a racist or misogynist attack.

Oh how racist that thing is, should be banned.

Why Donald Trump Declaring Himself A ‘Nationalist’ Is So Loaded

The president, of all people, knows the dark connotations of this word.

 

..... Merriam-Webster defines it as a belief system “placing primary emphasis on promotion of its culture and interests as opposed to those of other nations.” But it’s been prominently used by white supremacists in recent years to emphasize that some countries or regions should be defined by a white racial identity ― a trend Trump is well aware of given the rise of news about the ideology during his presidency.

Words matter, and any world leader should face a high standard for the connotations of the ones they use. Trump, perhaps, should be especially scrutinized for language around the issue of white nationalism given his past run-ins with it.

Here’s a look back on some of the most notable instances.....

t’s preposterous to think that Trump didn’t know about white supremacist groups or their sometimes violent support of him. Reports of neo-Nazi groups rallying around Trump go back as far as August 2015.

His white supremacist fan club includes The Daily Stormer, a leading neo-Nazi news site; Richard Spencer, director of the National Policy Institute, which aims to promote the “heritage, identity, and future of European people”; Jared Taylor, editor of American Renaissance, a Virginia-based white nationalist magazine; Michael Hill, head of the League of the South, an Alabama-based white supremacist secessionist group; and Brad Griffin, a member of Hill’s League of the South and author of the popular white supremacist blog Hunter Wallace.

A leader of the Virginia **** who backed Trump told a local TV reporter in May 2016, “The reason a lot of Klan members like Donald Trump is because a lot of what he believes, we believe in.”......

President Trump insists he deserves "no blame" for what he called the "hatred" in the country. @ABC identified at least 17 criminal cases where Trump's name was invoked in direct connection with violent acts, threats of violence, or allegations of assault https://abcn.ws/2DkODyR

Go Trump Go! Your Midterm Ad is a masterpiece personifying the insanity of our immigration Policy. Bravo Trump!

trump's racist ad has the full approval of a former grand wizard of the Ku Klux Klan.

trump doesn't please all the people all the time, but it looks like he pleases white supremacist David Duke most of the time.

“I don't believe it's prejudice. I truly believe that they may not have some of the necessities to be, let's say, a field manager, or perhaps a general manager.”

~Al Campanis was fired [as general manager of the Los Angeles Dodgers] for saying this over 30 years ago. Trump expressed a similarly racist view tonight.

Can't believe anyone can be this ignorant and another case of PC on steroids.  The phrase "cotton pickin" is an old phrase (intensifier) to express one's anger / frustration.

Guess he could had said  the race is so GD, ******* important.

The war on language continues. :wacko:

I pity the good people of Georgia if they are stuck with a man so bereft of political character and public decency as this man. I’ve never seen a serious candidate for governor end his campaign in a more sleazy, disappointing way.

Identity Evropa is a white supremacist group that popularized "you will not replace us" chant; Casey is its leader.

We demand the White House answer why he was there. The White House should be #NoPlaceForHate.

This year I tracked white nationalists running for office. One of them — Arthur Jones — told me that black people were intellectually inferior and that my intelligence came from my “white side.” He just won 25% of the vote in his bid for Congress: 53,000 people voted for him.

Someone Air-Dropped a Swastika Photo to OPRF Students' Phones During an Assembly, School Says

The incident marked the third anti-Semitic message at the school in less than two weeks, according to the school

 

........Earlier in the week, graffiti was discovered in a girls' bathroom that called for the deaths of “blacks (and) Muslims,” alongside a swastika and the phrase "gas the Jews."

"I went through the entirety of Monday absolutely fearful for my life," student Jordan Murray said.

The week before, another graffiti message was scrawled on a shed at the school, with the phrase "white power" and two swastikas - ........
