Where else besides the land of Dixie? Any time Mississippi wants to leave the union, please go.
If you’re black and a student at one public middle school in Mississippi, you can’t run for president – only whites need apply.
Nettleton Middle School in Nettleton, Miss., has segregated its elected class positions by race, according to a memo sent home with children at the school last week that was obtained by NBC News.
NOTE FROM JOHN: You really have to read this story. It’s incredible. Yes, the policy was put in place 30 years to ensure that black kids were guaranteed a seat on the student council. Only problem, black kids still weren’t allowed to be class president. So the school kept the policy, in writing, and no one thought it was a problem that in 2010 the written school policy was that only white kids could be class president.
I’m sorry, but the principal of that school should be under a Justice Department investigation, as should any and every teacher who was involved in these elections. What kind of a racist pig hands out a piece of paper saying that only white kids can be class president, and doesn’t sense a problem with that?
Seriously f’d up state, Mississippi.
