I like how for racists, it used to be racist if and only if the N-word was used. But apparently, even that is not enough anymore for someone to admit that is what it is.

Not so CSB:

My junior high school in Arkansas had a slave auction to raise funds. It was sponsored by the student council and the student reps would be the high bidders' "slave" for the day.
The follow-on high school had the Rebels as a mascot (Johnny Reb). At pep rallies, the band played Dixie, and the crowd chanted "The South Shall Rise Tonight" while waving Confederate flags.

The school district sent a note home to parents and called it "cyberbullying" instead of racism "to soften the blow for parents who are uncomfortable with a discussion about racism".

Never mind the discomfort of the students who were turned into a slave-trading game. In the US. In "Christian" America. In the 21st century.

Civil war reenactors.
I believe those who participate in these things should be in a lottery and ten percent of them are drawn.
Those ten percent have to go through a battlefield amputation just like they did in the civil war. No antiseptics, nothing for pain before, during or after and no antibiotics before during or after.
This will have the benefit of there being at least ten percent less people indulging in this stupid pastime the next reenactment.

Ah, Texas.  I remember when I lived there, in 2009, and Obama was going to give a president's message to students (as other presidents have done) and my kids' elementary and high schools were in uproar.  Parents were protesting the fact that "that man" was going to speak to their children.  Urgent meetings.  Several email updates about how the schools would address it.

I guess things haven't changed.

The same as when the suspend kids who were seen by a teacher smoking at the mall on a Saturday. At least, that was happening in the early 2000s at my school.

Same damn thing happened in Escambia County Florida.  Obamas  unity speech was banned from the classroom.  The former superintendent, Malcolm Thomas, recently retired.  Half the kids can't read and they kept this goof onboard for his entire career.

Exactly. It's not the job of the farking school unless it was some sort of class project or school club. The school shouldn't be disciplining anybody. Send out a letter to parents of those who were trading and those who were being traded containing screenshots of the evidence and let them discuss it. Maybe offer up use of some baseball bats to the slaves parents. But schools have no authority over students private actions.

This reminds me of the two times a school decided to gather all the black kids and have them go on an educational trip to a cotton farm or something to experience what black slaves did a long time ago.

Historical field trips are boring, I prefer trips to factories, science museums and the like. Take kids there, not to boring historical places filled with horrible memories lol!

Pretty much everywhere.

How cute that you pretend that only one place make decisions based on something as arbitrary as race. In some cases, you'd be hard pressed to figure out the difference between the oppressor and oppressed.

What you say is not correct under the law today. I think it would be better if the law agreed with you, but it doesn't.

Under current law, student speech which is "disruptive" can be disciplined as "disruptive behavior" by the school. Obviously the word "disruptive" is pretty damn vague, and leaves a hole in the First Amendment big enough to drive a truck through.

Popehat has a good podcast -- with very few episodes -- regarding Free Speech. https://legaltalknetwork.com/​podcasts/​make-no-law/

The episode on "Tinker v. Des Moines" covers student speech.  And anyone who has uttered or heard the phrase "you can't shout 'fire' in a crowder theater" should listen to the episode "Fire in a Crowded Theater" so that you can understand both how stupid the phrase is and how the original context of the phrase was pure fascism.

Morse v Frederick.  If supporting drug use is punishable, then supporting slavery - which is explicitly forbidden by the Constitution itself, not just a law - is also punishable
