You know that whole pizzagate deal where everyone was claiming that certain words and phrases were codes for something more nefarious?

That's what "Build the Wall" has become. It has become code for "We don't like you Latinos and we will insult and intimidate the hell out of you."

No, it's code for "for many very good reasons we don't like illegal immigrants being in the country illegally."

Not when you're chanting it in front of Latino students who are most likely all legal citizens.

That made no sense whatsoever. Or are you implying that those legal citizens all support people coming here illegally while they pay taxes to support it all ? Are you implying that all latino's who are here legally do that? And since they are here legally how does a protected border affect them ?

Not to mention how is wanting a protected border racist to begin with?

I don't find this surprising. Trump supporters and middle schoolers think alike, Lord of flies mentality.

Of course it frightens them. And that was the point of chanting it. Same as hanging the noose in the bathroom was supposed to frighten the black students in the school.

ya know, if you go onto youtube and look around some, you can find videos where the latinos and others have been harassed, told to go home, ect who are born and raised here...
and, oh ya, let's completely ignore the noose that was found in the bathroom...

How is a noose racist? Prove it! These are just good old fashioned patriotic, American kids who just so happen to be white, (who I am sure are extremely tolerant by the way) chanting good old fashioned American slogans and using symbolism (noose) to represent a time when America was once "great".*sarcasm*

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?

what was the purpose of their chanting it though?
maybe they volunteering to be sent south to help build it??
or tryng to enlist others to the project...
and, what was with all the banging on the tables about?

if not to make a statement to those not so white kids in the cafeteria?
to frighten them..
and well, I am sorry, but it's been accepted by many that nooses to carry a racist tone and have been used as a form of intimidation. so much so that some states have made it illegal to display them for that purpose.

kids shouldn't be allowed to make their fellow classmates fear going to school. it doesn't make for an atmosphere that aides in learning.

My question would be who started it? Kids are dumb, uninformed and impressionable (especially when it come to the internet and this whole election was one big meme) they don't really know what they're saying (whether it's right or wrong) if the kids started this, it's probably just kids being wild (remember the age group, these aren't young adults they're 12-15 at the most) and shouldn't be too big a deal. Their were ACTUAL Race riots in my school like with weapons. You'll get over it. But, if teachers incited this, then there's a problem. Like I said, kids are impressionable, and I wouldn't want anybody putting any ideas in my kids head before he's old enough to Think critically

liberals need to calm down and stop verbally attacking others and putting them on a defensive position or things will get worse and people will start turning towards real actual extremist views, people hate being made out to be the bad guy or having their wrongs being shoved in their face and it only makes them stop listening.

if you want to clear hatred then stop using hatred and actually talk to such people, try to understand the reason for that hatred and reason out why they should stop, treat them as a friend and forgive them, in many cases you will see racism is fear and panic caused by a past trauma or someone's words not actual hatred; that they just need to be shown the truth.

this monster you see coming out after trump won is your own creation caused by your hate filled criticism and labeling of people as racist and stupid for no reason other than not voting your way

stop hating people for their views and question everything even yourself.

They clearly were sending a message to the Latino students, and it wasn't a message of love. Not racist, they just don't like Latinos.


What evidence do you have of this? NONE! Latinos came out and voted for Trump, not Hillary! Interesting that you assume it was all white students and you assume those white people have bad intentions.

How do you know who hung the noose? How do we know it wasn't yet another hoax? Does it ever occur to you that you do a lot of anti-white fear mongering?

What does a noose in the bathroom have to do with the lunchroom incident?

How do you know who left the noose in the bathroom?

When a person burned that church and spray painted vote Trump, people assumed it was a racist Trump supporter that burned the church......then they found out what happens when you assume.

Maybe conservatives need to calm down and stop bullying others who aren't like them.

Maybe us liberals had a past trauma with someone who was conservative who bullied us for no reason other than we were different from them in some way.

Did ya ever think about that?

You're the bullies. You're the ones trying to shame us and legislate people's thoughts and words. You're the ones who make up racist incident hoaxes in order to perpetuate racist fear mongering of your own.
