Parents Yell N-Word, Spit And Throw Garbage At Black High School Players After Taking Knee

Published

on

This is sickening. What have we come to as a nation when our children are being treated this way because of a political gesture. Well, this is actually nothing new. Remember the kids who decided they were going to sit at the counter of a restaurant despite a “whites only” rule that meant they had to eat somewhere else? Those kids were spit on and taunted by white folks as well, and history doesn’t remember those people very kindly.

Now, it’s happened again at a football game in Detroit, of all places. Student athletes, a lot of whom are black, faced ridicule, were spat upon, had garbage thrown at them, and were taunted with racial slurs after taking a knee during the National Anthem before the game started.

The man who called the DotCom crash, the housing boom & bust, and the market’s surge since 2009 warns of a new panic ahead. Click to find out more… Read More

According to The Detroit Free Press:

DETROIT PUBLIC SCHOOLS COMMUNITY DISTRICT SUPERINTENDENT NIKOLAI VITTI SAID SUNDAY THE SCHOOL DISTRICT WAS WITHHOLDING ANY POSSIBLE DISCIPLINARY ACTION PENDING A REVIEW OF SATURDAY’S DIVISION 5 STATE SEMIFINAL FOOTBALL GAME, WHICH WAS CALLED OFF EARLY IN THE FOURTH QUARTER BECAUSE OF EXCESSIVE PERSONAL FOULS.

ALMONT WON THE GAME, 36-8, AT WALLED LAKE CENTRAL HIGH SCHOOL.

So, the children may be disciplined for holding a peaceful, and quiet protest against the disgusting behavior that they endured because of the protest? That sounds about white.

The publication continued:

AS PLAYERS WERE EXITING THE FIELD, TENSIONS ESCALATED AFTER A DENBY PLAYER SHOVED AN ALMONT BAND MEMBER. ALMONT FANS THEN BEGAN HURLING RACIAL SLURS AT DENBY PLAYERS, SOME OF WHOM REACTED BY THROWING HELMETS OR SHOES OR CLIMBING A FENCE THAT SEPARATED FANS FROM THE PLAYING FIELD.

ACCORDING TO DENBY COACH DEON GODFREY, THE RACIST REMARKS INCLUDED THE N-WORD AND BEGAN AS EARLY AS WHEN DENBY PLAYERS TOOK A KNEE DURING THE NATIONAL ANTHEM BEFORE THE GAME.

The team coach, Deon Godfrey remembers the chaos. He said this to the press about the wretched incident that will never be forgotten by these kids:

“OUR CAMERAMAN IS WHITE AND WAS FILMING NEAR SOME ALMONT FANS. DURING THE NATIONAL ANTHEM, HE OVERHEARD THEM SAYING: ‘LOOK AT THESE N-WORDS TAKING A KNEE AND THEY DON’T EVEN KNOW WHY THEY’RE DOING IT,’ AND THEY KEPT GOING.”

DENBY’S WHITE COACHES ALSO WERE BEING CALLED “WIGGERS,” GODFREY SAID, AND “GROWN MEN AND WOMEN STARTED SPITTING ON OUR KIDS AS THEY WALKED UP THE RAMP. THEY WERE THROWING FOOD, CUPS AND WHATEVER.”

😪… grown mfs spiting on kids smh man I’ll be in jail. These mfs get away with everything. https://t.co/rYiJ21KxYx

And hat’s not all, according to the coach:

“THEY CALLED MY STUDENT TRAINER A LITTLE MONKEY AND THEY WERE SAYING: ‘WHO LET THEM OFF THEIR LEASHES? THEY NEED TO BE ON A LEASH. THEY NEVER SHOULD HAVE BEEN HERE IN THE FIRST PLACE.’ ”

A PUNCH WAS THROWN, GODFREY SAID, AFTER AN ALMONT PARENT “BUMPED MY PLAYER AND (THE PLAYER) BUMPED HIM BACK.” THE PARENT PUNCHED THE PLAYER IN THE FACE, BEFORE “MY PLAYERS STARTED RUNNING TO HIS AID.”

Ok the shit that Denby high school students and staff went through at that championship NEEDS TO BE ADDRESSED. Almont high school should be banned from playing football for a couple of years.

Police showed up, but zero arrests were made because, hey, the crimes were just against black people. School officials have the nerve to pretend they are shocked and shaken by the incident, releasing the following statement:

“THE SCHOOL DISTRICT IS DEEPLY DISTURBED BY THE ACTIONS WITNESSED THIS WEEKEND DURING THE ALMONT-DENBY GAME. BASED UPON PRELIMINARY FINDINGS, ‎IT IS OUR UNDERSTANDING THAT ALMONT ADULT SPECTATORS WERE CURSING AND SPITTING ON OUR COACHES AND PLAYERS AFTER THE GAME WHILE LEAVING THE FIELD. THE DISRESPECT TOWARD THE CITY, SCHOOL, AND PLAYERS CONTINUED ON SOCIAL MEDIA AFTER THE GAME WHERE ALMONT FANS USED NUMEROUS RACIST STEREOTYPES. WE LOOK FORWARD TO GETTING TO THE BOTTOM OF WHAT OCCURRED BASED ON FACTUAL EVIDENCE TO DETERMINE THE DISTRICT’S NEXT STEPS ON HOW TO BEST SUPPORT OUR SCHOOL AND ITS ADMINISTRATION, COACHES, AND STUDENTS.”

Police are still investigating.

Meth and Trazodone found in Kamille ‘Cupcake’ McKinney’s body, court testimony reveals

Published

on

According to CBS42 — During a hearing Tuesday for Patrick Stallworth, a suspect in the killing of a 3-year-old Birmingham girl, the court found probable cause to send his capital murder case to a grand jury.

Stallworth, 39, was charged in late October with capital murder, alongside 29-year-old Derick Irisha Brown, in Kamille “Cupcake” McKinney’s death. Stallworth and Brown have been persons of interest in the case ever since the toddler’s abduction from a party at the Tom Brown Village public housing community on Saturday, Oct. 12.

McKinney died of asphyxiation that same day, investigators said. Her body was recovered 10 days later in a dumpster at a north Jefferson County landfill.

According to the prosecution’s argument, the evidence reveals Stallworth and Brown were together for the entirety of the Saturday McKinney disappeared. They say that around noon that day near Tom Brown Village, Stallworth and Brown offered candy to middle school girls.

Surveillance video shows Stallworth purchasing candy at a Shell station near Tom Brown just minutes before interacting with the girls. Surveillance video from a Center Point Parkway gas station also shows Stallworth purchasing a pill for erectile dysfunction and an energy drink later that night.

Prosecutors said phone records substantiate Stallworth’s admission that he was at the Tom Brown Village on Oct. 12. Stallworth admitted to giving children candy at the housing authority, prosecutors said. The prosecution also pointed to a video from a Tom Brown resident showing an interaction between a man and children, who then follow him off-camera.

During lead homicide Detective Jonathan Ross’ testimony Tuesday, he said children told Birmingham police investigators they saw McKinney get into a vehicle matching the description of Stallworth’s SUV. The children said the driver had been handing out candy at Tom Brown Village, Ross testified.

Evidence from a mattress inside the suspects’ apartment indicates blood and a mixture of DNA from Stallworth, Brown, and McKinney, prosecutors said. Prosecutors said meth and Trazodone, the latter of which was prescribed to Stallworth for sleep, was found in McKinney’s system.

Temple PD officer accused of shooting man in head, killing him identified

Published

The officer accused of shooting a man to death in Temple was identified Tuesday.

Michael Dean, 28, was shot in the head and killed on Dec. 2.

Temple Police Officer Carmen DeCruz was identified as the officer involved, the department said.

The shooting was reported at 8:12 p.m. near the intersection of Loop 363 and Little River Rd.

It is unclear what led DeCruz to shoot and kill Dean.

An officer told Dean’s mother, Christine Dean, about the shooting, but she said she and the family still have questions.

“They should have had a definite explanation for us and not a bunch of ‘I don’t knows,'” Dean said. “I just want to know what happened to my son that caused him not to be with us anymore.”

Elementary school assignment asks students to ‘set your price for a slave’

Published

on

MEHLVILLE, MO — A class assignment landed a Missouri teacher on administrative leave and has the NAACP calling for a formal apology.

It happened at an elementary school in Mehlville, Missouri. Students in a fifth grade class were asked to do an assignment setting prices for different things and then reflect on topics such as a free market economy and wealth.

The students set prices for 12 different things: lumber, tar, wool, milk, etc. However, the last item the students were asked to set a price for was quite different than the first 11.

“You own a plantation or farm and therefore need more workers,” the question began. “You begin to get involved in the slave trade industry and have slaves work on your farm. Your product to trade is slaves. Set your price for a slave. These could be worth a lot.”

“The assignment was culturally insensitive,” principal Jeremy Booker said to KMOV in St. Louis. “The teacher has expressed significant remorse.”

Booker sent a letter to parents explaining the assignment and the steps being taken to rectify what happened and keep it from happening again.

“The school district is continuing to investigate this event,” Booker said. “I am working with district leadership to provide all Blades teachers and staff with professional development on cultural bias in the near future.”
