Also, remember this is the DM so it is, without a doubt, spun to high heaven with little of the actual fact.

Nah Stu, according to some of the posters on here its the downfall of western civilisation as we know it and its in the Fail so it must be true
.

The Fail also published an interview with the Mother of the other Child who, it turns out, asked the School for help with a situation that was upseting her then (4yr old)child. She also makes it clear that she didnt mention the words racism or racist.

According to some on here the proper response from the School should have been: 'go away, who cares if your not totally pure white kid is upset and crying'.

Did the School class this as a 'racist' incident? Dunno, the family could always request their childs records and have a look, Im sure the Fail or Adrian Hunt would love to print a copy of the incident sheet.

Despite claims to the contrary AFAIK, the School wouldnt need the parents permission to make an entry of the report on a kids record...Maybe, the parent was being asked to sign a form of contact i.e, a record of the meeting between the Head/ Teacher and the parent, what was discussed, disputed and agreed etc..thats how the Schools around me record meetings between themselves and parents.

lol

ever see white dogs or cats or any other kind white furred animal hating on their black furred counterparts?

what this tells you is that people who discriminate, [which means making a distinction] based on skin [or fur color]

lack the sense and intelligence given an animal

PC is something even lower than that
as it perpetuates the problem [intentionally] it's supposed to solve

The problem is you all probably have a specific image in your head of this innocent little boy shyly asking another kid to help him understand why he look different than himself.

You have no clue if that is the case. You have no clue if that kid was bullying him and asking him that just to antagonize the other kid.

Without any further details, you can't judge this kind of story. It's like if I asked a woman her breast size. If she just asked me to buy her a bra, that would be an appropriate question. However, if I were just some stranger, that would be sexual harassment.

Details (which are being left out for the sake of a "good" news story) are important.

honestly I don't really care if the black kid was calling the white kid honky and the white kid called him a porch monkey - when I was in school we threw rocks at each other on the play ground these kids are sissy's

The boys are 7 years old!

Does a 7 year old even understand what racism is?

Are small kids no longer allowed to call each other names without the politically correct thought police branding them racist?

If they are name calling, that is bad. Precisely because they are 7 years old. This is the time to actually teach them and show them how decent human beings are supposed to treat each other. Would you rather your kids grow up thinking that was okay and then just get stabbed on their first pub crawl because their parents didn't want them "indoctrinated" with decency?

Then again, if he was honestly just curious, then that would be absolutely fine. I just doubt that was the case and, unless we know, there's no way to judge this story.

Well, teach them then. But don't brand a 7 year old as a racist and have it on his academic record all the way through school on the merest hint of racism.

Don't blame the other kid.
Blame the teacher or etc who told for no reason at all.

My niece knows the difference in races[like white and black, she doesn't know of asians and etc yet]

But she definitely isn't races, she says to me "my mother told me that we're all human"

Kingston upon East Hull MP Karl Turner said he was content the remarks were not racist.

Daily Mail

Yet the school attempted to force the 7 years old's mother to sign a declaration stating the child had been racist


‘I was told I would have to sign a form acknowledging my son had made a racist remark which would be submitted to the local education authority for further investigation,’ she said.

‘I refused to sign it and I told the teacher in no way did I agree the comment was racist.

Daily Mail


It would appear that the child was assumed guilty, in the eyes of the school, until proven innocent by the local authority and you appear to have leanings towards that viewpoint yourself.

I can agree with that. Most boys think girls have kooties but we weren't branded misogynists for life. The reaction should have been one that taught, not one that punished.

Have just been speaking to my work mates about this for the past couple of minutes and have desided that in another situation if a boy or girl were to ask there mum or dad if they came from there pirvate parts would they be branded a pervert?

His mother Hayley White, an NHS healthcare worker, refused to sign a form saying her son had made a racist remark and now wants him to go to another school.


She did refuse.

The mother of a seven-year-old UK boy was told to sign a school form admitting he was racist after he asked another pupil about the colour of his skin.

Elliott Deerlove had asked a five-year-old boy in the playground whether he was ‘white because he was from Europe’. His mother, Hayley Black, 29, said she received a phone call last month to say her son had been at the centre of a ‘racist incident’

Ms Black claimed she was asked at the meeting to read a copy of the school rules and in particular its zero-tolerance policy on racism.

‘I was told I would have to sign a form acknowledging my son had made a racist remark which would be submitted to the local education authority for further investigation,’ she said.

Last year, it was revealed that teachers are branding thousands of children racist or homophobic following playground squabbles.

More than 20,000 pupils aged 11 or younger were put on record for so-called hate crimes such as using the word ‘gaylord Focker’ .

haha, no sh*t.. before i was 10 I chased a couple black kids through yards because thier brothers/friendsthrew my female cousin into the street in front of a car, not that i saw color at the time but some dipsh*ts that messed with the wrong family, but now days that would be taken as racist and white kids would most likely be too scared just because of the kind of conditioning they have. sh*t, what if the economy does colapse and we have to actually survive? it very well could happen and im not gonna raise my kids to be some soft a** cowards too scared to speak thier mind and/or protect themselves because they have this idea that they should tread so carefully around people who look different. this whole idea of political correctness is collapsing right back onto itself.
