It appears that the principal of Marshalltown High School is the real racist here.
 
2014-07-17 01:31:04 PM  
Clearly this principal has other fish to fry.

The student's parents say the the principal of Marshalltown High School called Van Staalduine a racist after concluding that his hand signal was a white pride symbol.

The parents have now responded to the suspension and the charge that their son is a racist by threatening to sue.

"We were appalled," his mother, Cathy Van Staalduine, tol WHO-TV. "We were appalled and so was he. Absolutely. Because the furthest thing from Blair is being racist."

The school colors at Marshalltown High appear to be red, white and blue. Van Staalduine wore white because school officials had asked members of his class to wear white during school spirit week festivities.

"The actual school chose the colors that each grade would be wearing," Cathy Van Staalduine explained. "Juniors wore white. So Blair, of course, being active in the school, dressed from head to toe in white."


/Al sharpton and the ACLU will descend on this school like a plague of locusts...oh wait..he's the wrong color...nevermind, they will totally ignore this.

So, blackface was out of the question? How racist.

A cursory Google search for "white pride hand sign" and the like shows many fists, some Hitler salutes, some Los Angeles gang signs and a lot of sad losers - but nothing that much resembles a "W." So it's unclear what the hand gesture could have looked like.

that's because it's the double-secret White Pride salute.

The way this principal operates, Next year they HAVE to be pink.

Principal is a complete tool.

I wear white socks with brown shoes and tan shorts all the time.  I have been told this is wrong and yet I persist.  In fact, I'm wearing this particular combination right now.

It's only racist if the seniors wore red and chose this as their emblem:

Blair Van Staalduine is a tight end and a linebacker for the Marshalltown High Bobcats football team. Last year, the team didn't fare very well, finishing the season just 1-8.

Cowboys fans swear Tony Romo is the greatest quarterback since sliced bread was invented and they have never went beyond a wildcard game in the playoffs (and have not made the playoffs how many of the seasons he has been hawking Cowboy merchandise, I mean, playing starting quarter back?)

So hair is a bird - your argument is invalid,

I spent an entire day in the office because I was wearing a jacket with a 'swastika' patch on the back.
The offending patch-

I argued until I turned blue that it was just a stick figure dancing, but Bethune Cookman doesn't turn out dummies so the deans saw through my white lies.
This was back in '89 at the height of the 'Black by Popular Demand' and Malcolm X with a gun tshirt craze. I'm so glad they showed me the error of my ways.

No, your mom certainly isn't racist, if the lineup outside her house is any indication.

The preconceptions of the observer are often painted on the observed without the observer even being aware they are doing it.

As far as most teachers, principals, police, and politicians are concerned every "hand sign" is treated as a gang sign.

No, it was calling attention to the fact that he was wearing white. If you pretend it isn't happening, you're not racist.

Yeah school is gonna have to go into damage control over this one.

What they should do is : 1, Fire the principal  2. clear the suspension off the kids record and publicly apologize,  3. teach the former principal to keep up with school events.
