Racist graffiti found on the walls at Augora High School Sunday, May 12, 2013.
*There appears to be some kind of underlying race war going on and we don’t have a clue who started it.
And here we thought having the first black President was something that was celebrated…not so much.
In a community labeled “one of the safest communities in the country,” Augora Hills, California, some racist idiots spray painted a list of black students who would be the “first to die” at Agoura High School.
Of course parents were outraged to hear of the incident, but mostly because they were not immediately informed about it, according to the Huff Post’s Black Voices.
The “hit list” was believed to be sprayed on the wall last Wednesday, May 15, but there was racist graffiti on the walls discovered and removed from the walls on Sunday, May 12.
One parent spoke out to news station KTLA about her outrage with the school’s administration:
“I am completely shocked that they painted over something and didn’t alert the student body. Maybe kids have information, maybe they have knowledge, but to just completely ignore this, to put my son’s safety at risk? I’m not okay with that.”

Zion Williams, 8, was kicked out of Shiloh Christian Academy for breaking the long hair policy, but has Alopecia treatments to grow his hair in places where the ailment causes baldness.
*Don’t you hate it when you encounter a person that is clearly unqualified to hold their position because they don’t know how to make a judgement call because they’re more concerned with the rules than the people? Well, we have a good example for you.
An 8-year-old boy in Philadelphia, Pa., was barred from Shiloh Christian Academy last Wednesday because the principal and pastor at Shiloh, Bishop Derrick Williams, said that his hair was too long and he was breaking the school’s “short hair” policy, according to My Fox Philly.
Little Zion Williams has a skin disease called Alopecia that causes baldness.
He was being treated for the ailment with injections to his head, so the hair growth is necessary … and the whole point of being treated!
McGill brothers, Demarre and Anthony, make musical history through the nation’s orchestras.
*When a child realizes their passion at a young age and has it supported it makes for a magical outcome.
The McGill brothers, Demarre and Anthony, are living proof of that magic. They hail from the South side of Chicago, ironically known for its horrific crimes but also its musical superstars like Common, Kanye West, Jennifer Hudson and now the McGill Brothers.
The brothers started their careers with the Chicago Youth Symphony Orchestra, but since then, they have played in orchestras all over the country.
That accomplishment is rare indeed with only four percent of the nation’s orchestras consisting of African Americans or Latinos.
Now Anthony McGill serves as the principal clarinet of the Metropolitan Opera Orchestra in New York City and older brother Demarre serves as principle flute of the Seattle Symphony, according to the Grio.
But beyond their impressive positions, they have an incredible list of musical accomplishments
Sean King dresses in black face to portray Martin Luther King, Jr. for "wax museum day" at his elementary school.
*The history of the U.S. has racist residuals that haunt today’s society.
Black face is one of those racist practices that dates back to the turn of the 20th century when whites would put black make-up on their face to debase and negatively stereotype the image of African Americans.
But these facts may not be known to many young people today including their young parents.
Sean King is a second grader attending Meridian Ranch Elementary School in Colorado Springs that wanted to portray Martin Luther King, Jr., for his school project “wax museum day.” (more…)
Principal Steve McClenning resigned and his assistant Billie Madewell was terminated for their open display of passion in The Scholars Academy school cafeteria last week.
*The education system has really shown its behind this time … near literally.
Some folks have dropped discipline and commitment to education and picked up illicit affairs and indecency to replace it.
If your school’s main guardian leaves his watch to get busy in the cafeteria and isn’t picking up cups and plates … there’s a problem. (more…)
*Comedian Steve Harvey, who’s found new lives as a morning radio show host (The Steve Harvey Morning Show), TV show host (Family Feud) and author (Act Like a Lady, Think Like a Man), now has a new designation to add to the list: school principal — at least for one day.
The Birmingham News reports that students at Phillips Academy in Birmingham, Alabama will be giving props to Principal Harvey this coming Thursday … this after the school won a contest sponsored by Harvey’s morning radio show and General Mills.

Angela Strozier, the mother of an eighth-grader at Phillips Academy, entered the contest by submitting an essay about the school’s success. In it, she described how the deadly tornado outbreak in Alabama last April had affected many Phillips students.
Harvey said in a statement that he was impressed by the school’s “strong parental and community involvement.”
