What will it be next? Newborns are xenophobes for preferring their mothers?
This is hard to believe…
A headteacher has defended her decision to investigate an allegation that a four-year-old boy was guilty of racism during a game of chase.
Anne Phipps acted after Rocky Smith [a 4 year-old] spat at a 10-year-old black boy on the school’s playing field. She said she had no choice but to pursue the accusation, despite the child’s age.
The investigation, at Bedenham Primary School in Gosport, Hants, has angered Rocky’s parents.
Well, duh. What parent wouldn’t be angry at this extremist, reactive, knee-jerk behavior on the part of school authorities?
The latter are purportedly educated adults. As such they surely have studied child development? No psychologist on God’s green earth is going to consider a four year-old as a free moral agent, able to make racist judgments.
You know what his sin was? He spit at a ten year-old black boy he was chasing. He got excited – probably couldn’t outrun him but figured the trajectory of his saliva might catch up with the older kid. That’s not racist, it’s smart.
He didn’t call names, he simply did what little boys do the world over: he spit. This is so over the top I’m about to spit in frustration myself.
Here’s the exchange when his mother asked the child if he knew what a racist was:
– – – – – – – – –
Mrs Smith said: “After it happened, I said to Rocky ‘what is a racist?’ and he said ‘it’s when you have races with your friends and the person who wins is it’. I can’t believe they even called me. Rocky was wrong for lashing out and I’ve spoken to him about that, but how can a four-year-old be racist?
“His best friend at nursery was a boy of Indian background – colour doesn’t mean anything to him. I think my four-year-old deserves an apology.”
That’s the least he deserves.
Meanwhile, the school deserves a king-sized dunce cap for sheer ignorance. Even the law doesn’t believe a child is capable of reason until the age of seven.
So what do they teach these so-called “educators” in preparation for
brain washing instructing children?
I mean besides the endless classes they must have to attend on how to keep an eagle eye out for the least little offensive behavior that might lead to racism, xenophobia, etc., ad nauseam.
Weep, Jerusalem, for your children.
Better yet, if you have any possible way to do it, get them out of government schools while they are still able to think and their critical faculties have not atrophied completely.
