Deonte Holloman wanted Black Mountain Middle School in California to spend $36,000 to reprint their yearbook containing a racial slur very much related slavery which was prevalent in that region long ago. The epithet was not mean spirited and only reflective of the historical aspects of the area which young people should not ignore.
The N word appears in many documents to properly convey the ethos and culture of the region at that time. Holloman is over reacting close to the common knee jerk mentality our country has enough of.
Upset parent espisodes are quite common these days and in many cases quite justified given low teacher retention and high turnover. In some extreme instances, guys like Ryan David Leslie call the school threatening to shoot teachers and staff. Let’s avoid these boiling points!
