Discussion: Mom: Black Student Who Had Noose Put Around His Neck Was 'Horrified'

“It’s my hope that we’ll find out it was a bunch of teenagers doing what
teenagers do, which is acting with stupidity,” said Maddox, 60, who is
white. “They didn’t grow up in the '60s. They don’t understand the
context of it.

Of course they understand the context of it! Do you think they just randomly decided to put a noose around a black student’s neck? To even say that the don’t understand makes your either astonishingly naive or a liar. Or both.


I was going to post something similar. The only thing I would add is if they don’t understand the context, then that’s a failure of the education system.
