Well IMO I believe it was race related. The child more than likely used a "black" pen or a graphite pencil. Nowhere did I read that "white" pen or pencil or crayon was used....

With respect to the father's charge of racism, I wonder if he is just being smart.

Victims of urban crime in America are advised not to cry "Rape!" or "Robbery!," but rather to shout "Fire!" instead.

Who cries "Fire!" when faced with a rapist is being deceptive, misleading her listeners into calling 911 by making them think that they, not merely her, are in peril. Tsk, tsk.

Public attention needs to be focused on this civil rights incident. American MSM is not so interested in the right to the free exercise of religion. Especially not when a sacrament of the secular religion is also involved, the psychological evaluation.

American MSM will reliably spread the word about racial incidents, however.

Dad said what he needed to say to get the word out. Tsk, tsk. But well played.

But school officials say that the account in yesterday’s Taunton Daily Gazette was rife with errors and that the father’s description of what happened is untrue. “The report is totally inaccurate,’’ Julie Hackett, superintendent of the Taunton public schools, said in an interview in her office yesterday. “The inaccuracies in the original media story have resulted in a great deal of criticism and scrutiny of the system that is unwarranted.’’

Dino F. Ciliberti, editor of the Gazette, did not return calls yesterday.

Hackett said the student, age 9, was never suspended and that neither he nor other students at the Maxham Elementary School were asked by the teacher to sketch something that reminded them of Christmas or any religious holiday, as the Gazette and other media reported and the father suggested, although his story changed as he explained it.
