I Hope These Kids Who Invited A Black Kid To A ‘KKK’ Party Get Their Own Party In Hell

By  | 

shutterstock_31376692For 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!

    1. I’m glad the teacher intercepted this note and look the necessary actions and reported these kids. Side note: as a teacher, I would have a hard time treating those monsters with the kindness and dignity they obviously failed to show their classmate.

    2. Like I said, I teach middle school and I absolutely love my job – believe it or not, the kids are the best part. BUT, I cannot stand teenagers when they are out in the wild and not in my classroom. I think it’s a control issue – if they act up in my room, I can give them the appropriate discipline and correct the behavior. But when they are acting a fool out in public, there is nothing I can really do except give them my well-crafted teacher glare.

      The key is the eyebrow arch. It says “I see what you are doing and I’m waiting for you to make a good decision,”

      That and the set of your mouth. My cousin and I both have teacher glares. In our case, we call it the “I am a prison guard and I will cut you” look.

      Yes. The mouth is what says…homey don’t play. My kids told me yesterday that I’m strict with a personality thanks!?

      No lie–in workshops I gave to graduate TAs, I told them to develop a Mommy Voice. It is the best way to make college students focus on the discussion. At least, freshman college students.

    Wow i can’t believe any parent could brush this off add normal human nature.kids aren’t born racist. Toddlers don’t notice race.preschoolers might comment on someone else’s skin tone, but then you explain that lots of people are lots of different colors.i pointed out to my daughter that she and daddy are more yellow and tan really easily and mommy and her brother are more pink and sunburn really easily.i also told her its rude to point out differences in other people, and if she has a question to ask when we’re alone.so if these kids are picking on a black child it’s because their parents have failed them miserably.

      Exactly. Bad parents.

    What is this? I don’t even . . .
    I don’t even know how I would respond if my kid did this. Which isn’t to say he wouldn’t be punished, but it would be so mind blowing that I’m not sure I’d know what to do. Except condemn myself for being a failure as a parent.

      Ya know, it could easily be the parents were proud of their monster kids, which would be worse.

      That’s probably why you’re not likely to have this problem. There’s a pretty good chance that if the kids are acting like this in middle school, something at home taught them that it was OK, not bad, acceptible, etc.

    Another reason why the Houston area is just a no-go area for me. According to Wikipedia, Tomball calls itself “The Hometown with a Heart” and is 87% white and less than 5% black. I don’t know how these kids CAN be taught that what they did was wrong. Certainly the parents bear a large portion of the responsibility, but this is trashy, hateful behavior.

    I imagine at least some of the kids learned this from their parents – maybe some developed it on their own, some people are just jerks, especially as teens – but let me tell you, if my kid did that, he or she would be in huge trouble. Grounded forever, all privileges lost, maybe even sent away for a while. For me, bigotry against other people is one of the worst things you can do.

    ahh good ol texas, the heart of ‘Murica, I mean not really, they just like to think that. I was born and raised in kingsville, I used to be proud of it, until I realized the whole place is rampant with misogyny, racism, sexism, anti-choice, homophobic no tolerance for non Christians and the mentally disabled. The whole state is just so severely backwards it’s ridiculous, this article doesn’t surprise me in the least, not coming from texans anyways.

      Well, let’s not paint with such a broad brush. Are there some backwards people here? Absolutely. But I have found that it is more a small-town mentality and for the most part, the larger cities (along with the younger demographic) are much more open, accepting and diversified.

    • Jen Clark

      Yes that’s true, there are backwards people everywhere, including here in Kansas city, MO. Texas just for some reason seems to be full of them, it’s possible it’s just because the messed up ones are the only ones that get media attention? Also, I recognize your name, have we spoken before? That name is terribly familiar.

      Yes, the screwy ones usually do. I assume the sane and normal Floridians feel the same way. 🙂 I do not recognize you.

      Well, I’ve been browsing this site forever now, so perhaps I’ve only come across you, I did remember there was someone on a facebook game with the same name as well, so that’s probably why. Oh god, I can’t imagine how people in Florida must feel, every time I turn around there’s stories of people eating faces off and naked women running in highways from there.
