Reminder: Get your kids out of public school ASAP

Let's learn today's definition of racism, quoting this story:

Blair Van Staalduine, a junior, is a star athlete at Marshalltown High School. The junior class at the high school was assigned the color white to wear for spirit week. Being the spirited student athlete that he is, Blair went all out to show his school pride. He dressed in his assigned color, wearing a white t-shirt, white shorts, white socks, white shoes, and a white baseball cap. Then, he posed for a picture that was eventually posted on social media. In that picture, he formed the letter W with his hands. That is what ultimately led to his suspension.

After learning about the social media picture, the school’s principal accused Blair of being a racist and suspended him. His mother, Cathy Van Staalduine, indicated the family was shocked at the school’s response. [...] She added, “Somebody took a picture of him with his white doing a ‘W’ sign because they were wearing white. Blair says if they were wearing orange they would have done an ‘O’”.
Knock, Knock.
Who's there?
Orange who?
Orange you glad that you sent your White kid to a school where the principal is dirty fucking slope? 

Meet the principal responsible for the suspension, Aiddy Phomvisay:

Speaking as an actual White supremacist, I had no idea that making a W with your fingers was a racist gesture. That's news to me. Especially since making a W with one's fingers is actually the way of indicating the letter W in American Sign Language
