What could possibly be wrong with this? From Talking Points Memo:
Students at a high school in Red Wing, Minnesota brought school spirit to new lows with a “Wigger Wednesday” dress-up day tradition, according to a lawsuit filed against the school district.
Quera Pruitt, a Red Wing high school alumna, is suing the school district and administrators over creating a hostile and racist educational environment.
Here’s what happened: Students during the 2008 and 2009 homecoming celebrations wore “oversized sports jerseys, low-slung pants, baseball bats cocked to the side and ‘doo rags’ on their heads,” according to the suit. About 60 or 70 students took what was supposed to be “tropical day” and turned it into “wigger day,” the suit claims. To the unfamiliar, and as the case points out, the term “wigger” is a derogatory term for a white person who emulates African-American culture.
“‘Wigger Day’ is the same thing as ‘nigger day,’ ” Pruitt’s lawyer, Joshua Williams, told TPM. “That’s what my client feels, and that’s what I feel.”
Williams added that the suit isn’t targeting the students, even though he doesn’t condone the behavior. His complaint is with the administration.
“We believe the school district and the other defendents had a duty to stop this from happening again,” Williams said. “They didn’t address ‘wigger day’ in any kind of meaningful way.”
It is a disgrace that kids going to school are being subjected to the filth and degradation that these neanderthals are perpetrating. It is clear that the bestial attitudes of the Deep South are alive and well in the hinterlands of Minnesota, home to arch bigot Michele Bachmann and her
beard husband Ladybird.
