For a woman with four kids I sure do hate kids. I hate them! Haaaaate them! I love my own kids because they aren’t vicious little monster kids but the rest of the kids in the world suck. Except your kids. And maybe your kids. But keep the rest of these asshole kids away from me and away from my kids because we don’t want their special brand of fuckery that possibly involves picking their noses and masturbating in their own feces (Name the movie!) and using the N-word.
Some (asshole) kids in Texas decided it would be totally hi-larious to invite an African American kid in their seventh grade to a party. Not a party where the kids drink too much orange and purple soda and eat nine pizzas while playing video games like the rest of our kids do. Not the kind of party that my daughter always wants that involves sparkle ponies and a “candy bar” laden with Blow-pops and Pixie Stix. Not the kind of party my teenage son wants that involves me not saying anything rude to the young ladies who show up at my door with these giant, gaping, STARE INTO THE ABYSS ear gauges. No, these kids at Tomball Junior High School invited their classmate, who is black, to a KKK themed party.
From the Daily Mail:
A black middle school boy in Texas has been the victim of racist bullying by his fellow students and their latest offensive move was to give him an ‘invitation’ to a KKK birthday party that they said was ‘in his honor’.
A group of white students allegedly harassed Justin Howard, a seventh grader at Tomball Junior High School, and the tipping point was the invitation to the racist party.
‘They put it on his desk and said that he was invited to a KKK birthday party with lots of fun and games,’ his mother Tahiyyah Howard said.
In that instance, the teacher reportedly saw the note and picked it up before Justin could actually see it.
Mrs Howard was notified and though the school did not publicly state what the punishment would be, she fears it will not be enough.
‘They need to know that there are consequences and not just one-day suspension where they can go home and play video games all day. I think the parents should teach their kids that being racist or bullying is not OK, no matter if you’re playing around or just being mean. It’s just not OK,’ she said.
Another insensitive move made by the offending students was that one of the girls wrote ‘Black Justin’ on the board, which Mrs Howard said made her son very upset.
As a mom to kids who have friends of all different races I think I sort of forget shit like this actually happens. I can’t imagine my own kids or any of their friends acting like racist little fuckwits but I guess if this is what they are exposed to at home than maybe they are just acting how their own parents taught them. I know that racism exists but I think in my own happy little world because I never witness it firsthand I get all flabbergasted that kids would act this way. But upon furtherr investigation of this story I see stuff like this and it all makes perfect sense:
According to the ABC report, reaction was mixed from parents, as a number condemned the children’s actions while one brushed it off as if it was not a big deal.
‘Just them being kids, just being human beings,’ said one unidentified white mother.
Um, no, this is not kids being kids, this is kids being ignorant assholes. Who deserve to be punished.
I want to have my own party and invite all the loser kids who did this! But my party will involve making them do hundreds of hours of yard work for all of the elderly people in my neighborhood and taking a few year’s worth of sensitivity and racism awareness classes. And there will be no pizza!
