I’m not good at putting my thoughts into words on these sorts of things, but this article just makes me super uncomfortable
like I’m p sure that if I had reason to believe I was the only one being asked if I’d taken someone’s phone (for instance, if it was a personal message and not a group message, as was the case here) I would get upset. probably more so if I was black and being accused of stealing by someone who was white (which may not have been the wording of the message, but it also may very well have been, as we rather suspiciously weren’t shown the contents of the message.)
and “now he knew that no one at the school could do anything, no matter how badly he behaved.” ummmmm okay how does not being able to use extremely sensitive terms like “boy” = not being able to use any sort of discipline at all?
and tbh I can think of a lot of reasons someone would work somewhere like that if they were racist. I mean that just sounds like “I have black friends so I can’t be racist” and I hope I don’t have to explain to anyone why that’s bs
idk man this article just makes me uncomfortable and I don’t like it
