Anyone alive in America in 2022 knows exactly what is going on around us. Racial tensions, generally driven by a mainstream media machine that thrives and profits on division, and a White House that is doing everything in its power to sow the seeds of racial discord, once again for political power, are daily problems in our country.
So why, with all of this in mind, would anyone do something racially charged, even if it is a joke. I’ll tell you why, because teenagers are incredibly stupid and short-sighted, and generally don’t think about the consequences of their actions!
Yes, I know we ALL did dumb, lame-brained things as teens. With that in mind, maybe it isn’t fair to just blame kids for doing dumb stuff that kids do, but for Pete’s sake, aren’t parents teaching kids to at least ATTEMPT to get out of their own way these days?
I’m tired of the bigotry, the hate and the assbackwards thinking that is being smeared through the media because of the bad actors at #ColerainHighSchool. Cincinnati is the Queen City for a reason & Queens don’t act like that. #Colerain, get your sh*t together! #DontMessWithMoms

So what’s the story? According to NBC News:
Students at a Cincinnati high school who taped “Blacks only” and “whites only” signs over water fountains and posted pictures of the signs on social media will be disciplined, the district announced after the incident was broadcast by a local news station.

Northwest Local School District said officials were made aware of the racist incident at Colerain High School on May 5.
Holy guacamole kids! Why? Why do something SO INCREDIBLY STUPID?
The district started to investigate and learned that the signs over the water fountains were posted for about 30 seconds, while the students responsible took photos. They then took the signs down, and posted photos of their handiwork online.
“Those who participated in this tasteless and hurtful act have been issued significant disciplinary actions,” said the district’s statement, which noted that “information regarding this incident was shared on the news today.” The statement was issued on May 16.
Parents at the 9-12 school were made aware of the incident in a letter from the school on May 5.
“Any student, including those who are found to have taken part in sharing the post online will also be subject to disciplinary action,” said the letter. “The actions that were displayed do not reflect the values and culture of Colerain High School or the Northwest Local School District.”
Jim Crow laws, segregating Black people from white people, were enforced in the South until 1965.
Colerain High School, which has about 1,700 students is 30 percent Black and 50 percent white, according to U.S. News and World Report.

Let me first say, to my point of the mainstream media attempting to race-bait, NBC News for some reason felt compelled to point out that Jim Crow laws were in effect in the SOUTH until 1965. Cincinnati isn’t the South folks. Absolutely no reason to bring up the fact there were despicable, racist laws in the South, except to attempt to cast a racist light on a region of the country that tends to be red politically. Also, let me point out that black is capitalized in that quote and white isn’t. See what we are dealing with here with the mainstream media? Very crafty NBC. But I digress.
Colerain High School is very racially diverse, so my feeling is, without actually knowing, that some kids were trying to go viral on social media by posting these signs. A school that’s 30 percent black isn’t exactly the ideal environment to be a white supremacist, so I suspect when I update this story, we will find black kids and white kids were both involved.
Until then, punish the knuckleheads involved, and please, for the sake of our nation, please white kids, stop doing dumb stuff trying to be funny! It’s not worth it!
