even without regard to the racial aspect, there's a LOT of stuff that's just screwed up in schools nowadays. that whole zero tolerance thing is nuts, the way it's implemented, where they somehow manage to punish the good kids.

a lot of people just take for granted that everything is cool.

at my daughter's high school they were regularly tasering kids over shit like throwing paper in the cafeteria. one kid threw a crayon in the trash and the (black) teacher wrote it up as assault (b/c the crayon bounced off the rim of the trash can and hit him).

understood. it's a momentous decision. a lot of folks do the whole 'just sticking my foot into the water' thing. some do it just for elementary school. some through middle school. and some all the way through.
