Did CNN:



The Cable News Network (CNN) is an American basic cable and satellite television channel that is owned by the Turner Broadcasting System division of Time Warner.[

Wikipedia

Release an official statement saying this chant by students was racist?

Did high level CEO's of CNN say this?

Was this said by anyone at CNN with the authority to speak on behalf of the Cable News Network, owned by Time Warner in an official capacity?

....

Or was this simply the opinion of an anchor or guest on a CNN segment?

There is a difference.

But hey, actual distinctions like that don't matter right? You don't like CNN because they don't say things you agree with, so naturally this headline is something you can get behind.

It supports your "team" after all, and it boosts your identity politics.

Politics isn't a sports game, and should never be wrapped around a human being like an identity.

Do you think the middle school students are Trump supporters?


I think it's quite possible that they are.

Why do you think they aren't?



I think they are definitely in support of shouting Build a wall in front of the Latino students.


So what? Are they not allowed to express an opinion? Is that opinion any less valid than anyone else's?

Indeed. Now if only the left would stop playing identity politics.

I don't think 12 year olds in middle school should be allowed to intimidate other 12 year olds.

And the SJWs that collapse in tears when they see Trump's name written on a wall are a prime example of adults? I would bet there are many 12 years olds who are much more politically and mentally mature. These are kids who have had to grow up in a "everything you say is bad unless we approve" atmosphere and see what that's lead to. They've been seeing and hearing for most of their lives, how an open door policy had hurt this country, so why would they not want to control immigration?

I'd be willing to bet you that 99.9% of the Latino students in that middle school are legal citizens.

So what's the point of shouting Build a Wall to those Latino students? To send a message that you don't like them because they are Latino.

CNN still thinks Mexicans are a race and not a nationality.


Most Americans still think all illegals are coming from Mexico.

They don't know that there is another continent and a half south of us.......

You assume the chant was about them the (Latinos). You see the world through racist eyes. Racism is every where, a whole school is racist now.

Take a second, they were talking about securing our boarders, is that something that you are so against you are willing to say these kids are racist?

It's funny how context is everything, three words, without context they're fine to say..
Build a wall?
Sure, walls are good, maybe build 3 more and slap a roof on that sucker.

They're kids, maybe one day they'll understand why this was not a very pc event... but...
I kinda feel you guys need the wall.

They just find Latinos inferior and want them out.


But that isn't at all racist?! What a bunch of BS.

You didn't answer the question.

Which race would the wall be keeping out?

Which race was the chant supposedly being chanted toward?

So you are saying they were chanting build the wall toward Mexicans. And you are saying Mexicans are a race.....

Now prove to me they were chanting this chant toward Mexicans.

Also prove to me Mexicans is a race.

The wall would be built to keep out illegal immigrants. Since when was illegal immigrants a race?

Chanting "build the wall" is about as racist as chanting "stop them from Jay walking". Frequent Jay walkers or their counterparts might get offended, does that make the chant racist?

I'm not gonna bother trying to prove anything......

if you can't see how it's wrong for a group of kids to shout any kind of slogan that carries the message like "build the way" while pounding on the table in a school environment and I've noticed that everyone completely ignored the fact that a noose was found hanging in the school in restroom, then I just ain't don't see how anything I am gonna say is going to change anything!

I'm just going back to watching my video, it's really quite interesting...



to me, he seems to be describing the Inauguration...
