Have you heard this story about the deaf white kids who scrawled KKK on a black deaf classmate? The officials are categorizing it as horseplay that got out of hand. I call it a hate crime.
I don’t know if kids really understand the gravity of the KKK and hanging nooses in trees, or if there is a pure, unadulterated resurgence of racism in this country. Whatever the answer, there are some latent racism issues bubbling to the surface in America and we have to do something about it.
What can we do? I don’t know. The first place we can start is having equal justice for all and prosecuting those who think they can get away with being blatantly racist with any repercussions.
