White Parents Demand An Apology For School’s Black History Month Event [VIDEO]
Fox News Morning show “Fox & Friends” interviewed two white Virginia parents, Rebecca and Charles, who are outraged because their 8-year-old daughter’s school district held a Black History Month event.
“Everywhere that we looked were students, high school students, wearing shirts that said ‘Black Lives Matter, I Can’t Breathe,” said Rebecca. “As I was flipping through my program, it had ‘Hands Up, Don’t Shoot.’”
“Students started coming out on stage saying things like, ‘I’m from Ferguson, Missouri. I was told to put my hands up. I did and I was shot seven times. My name is Michael Brown,’” Rebecca recalled. “I immediately realized that this was not something that was a good idea for my daughter to be seeing.”
Before making a judgement about these parents or event. You have to ask one question; Why is a 8 year old in a school program with high school students ? The content level of education is formatted by age for a reason. I think this is a cultural problem that all parents face.
When do you introduce your children to reality of the world ? The girl's father is a police officer so he wants to protect her; as long as he can from people introducing the reality that some police officers do the wrong things at times.
This probably brought up a lot of questions, that the father may not be ready to answer. I doubt the school will give her or the parents an apology, this is the society we all live in. Public school is about the public; racism is a public issue. They should put their kid in private school.
