So this happened and no one thought “this is wrong. We should stop this”. No teachers, no parents, no students.
THIS HAPPENED IN THE GENERAL AREA I LIVE IN, CENTRAL NEW YORK.
THE NORTH IS THE MOST RACIST PLACE I HAVE EVER LIVED.
The decision reversed verdicts at midlevel courts concerning cases against the Ithaca and North Syracuse school districts. In both cases, the State Division of Human Rights had stepped in when middle school students complained about taunts from their classmates, including racial slurs like “gorilla” and “fat black b—,” according to court documents. In one case, the human rights division found the school district in violation of the human rights law because it had not tried to prevent the harassment, and had instead argued the insults were not about race, but hygiene. The districts in turn maintained that the division did not have the right to investigate them in the first place.
THIS IS WHAT HAPPENS HERE.
THIS IS HOW THEY “DEAL WITH” RACISM HERE.
i grew up in upstate/central ny and it was and remains a suuuuper racist place
kids in my high school freely threw around slurs including the n-word, “chink,” “jew” as an insult, as well as anti-gay slurs, ableist slurs etc.
and for the most part went completely unpunished for it
it’s probably no surprise that my hometown was 97% white (lots of 3-4 generation italian-american roman catholic families)
more evidence that Central New York is a racist hellhole.
