Current and former Saint Francis students have been tied to an Instagram account that posted a racist image making fun of George Floyd, who was killed by Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin on May 25.
The image, as indicated in a Change.org petition demanding that the high school discipline the students, refers to Floyd with a racial slur and makes fun of his appearance.
The school investigated the students affiliated with the Instagram account and found additional incidents of racist behaviors, according to Jason Curtis, the high school’s president.
The students involved face “serious consequences,” Curtis said in an interview. He declined to say what those consequences were, citing privacy concerns for minors.
He confirmed that one of those incidents had involved the use of blackface.
A group called “Concerned Parents – Black Lives Matter” created an event on Facebook to organize the march, calling on attendees to show the school’s administration that such actions will not be tolerated.
One of the protest’s organizers, Alicia Labana, is African American and a parent of a Saint Francis student. She said she wants the school to take a stronger stand in penalizing the students involved, including one or two students she said appear to be current students, based on online sports rosters. The school has so far only publicly attributed the actions to recent graduates in statements on the school website….
The above comes from a June 8 story in the Mountain View Voice.
And heaven help the parent or student that refuses to participate in this event. They will be accused of all kinds of hate and discrimination, when in fact, they are simply refusing to be held hostage to a far left agenda that uses race as the tip of the fanatical iceberg. Go ahead and look up what Black Lives Matter believes, it’s a panoply of radical ideas. Everyone who is sane is against racism, they need not kneel to the mob to prove it.
St. Francis HS supports all things gay, as does Archbishop Mitty HS and Presentation HS and Notre Dame HS, all in the Diocese of San Jose. They have gay married faculty and allow same-sex dates to proms and dances, and have pro-gay indoctrination events during the school year. But administrators get all fired up over alleged racism occurring off-campus. Because they are leftist schools, not Catholic. Every school and even the diocesan superintendent have published letters or articles groveling and kneeling down before BLM about something that happened far away in a different state and has nothing to do with their schools, afraid that if they don’t prove their white-guilt woke credentials they will be lambasted for their silence. If students did whatever on their own time, not at a school function, not on a school technological platform, then I don’t think the school has jurisdiction. And if schools won’t punish faculty or students for endorsing or living the gay life, there is a double standard. If the schools give in to the BLM activist agitators, there will be no going back. They will be beholden to the agitators forever. Either you stand up to this totalitarianism now or they will take over everything about life. The agitators cannot get away with doxing those students. It’s a free society, or it used to be.
Douglas, is there a reason you didn’t mention Jesuit-affiliated Bellarmine College Prep, among “Catholic” schools in the area pushing the LGBTQ+ agenda?
Oh, I just forgot about BCP. That’s all. but with Jesuits I suppose it goes without saying, right?
Black Lives Matter. Coming to a neighborhood near you.
You censored the whole point: that BLM is racist, subversive, totalitarian, and Marxist which it manifestly is by their own declarations, their own rhetoric. Why cover for them, Cal-Catholic? Ah, the looters. Understood, good point.
I think the administrators of St. Francis are about to find out that they can’t ride the tiger they thought they’d tamed. It’s turning on them and biting them now. Lesson to all who think they can placate the mob by capitulating.
Black Lives Matter is imbued with Marxism, gender-theory, and anti-family agenda.
There’s no bigger coward than a school administrator. They posture and issue statements in support of SJWs to hide their cowardliness. Watch. Schools will soon be overrun by mobs the same way a six-block radius in Seattle has been. The cowards in government and in schools will cave to the mob every time, especially if they are people of color.
Lord of the Flies: Catholic Adult Version
My question is: did this really happen at all, or is it just another hoax perpetuated by the very same people that are complaining to start trouble and divide and conquer for their own benefit. Without a police investigation, and I doubt they would agree to that, who knows?
This Anonymous post was mine — Anne TE. By the way, I have gotten racist e-mails sent to me in the past against just about every ethnic group or race. I simply delete them and get on with my life. I now get very few of them.
Oops! the Anonymous post to which I was referring is the one today, June 11, at 11;17am.
There is no systemic racism in this country, and there is very little racism. Racism would probably completely disappear if Democrats would stop fomenting it for the sake of getting votes. You think it’s merely coincidence that all this is happening in an election year? Wise up.
That is my point — that there is not a person on the planet that has not said or written something that is offensive to someone or some other group whether they intend it or not.
An example: I used the term “welshed on a deal” when I was younger without even realizing that it was derogatory to Welsh people, at least originally, and I myself have Welsh ancestors.
If people cannot laugh at and forgive each other these mistakes, we create a living hell on earth.
Sorry, Kevin T., I thought your post was to me, but I can now see that it was not.
How soon before country music is considered racist? Listening to country music soon to be a civil rights violation?
They would have to take a whole lot of people away to the “Happy Farm” if they did that since a lot Mexicans like it too. It is quite similar to ranchero music in lyrics.
Oh, and many Filipinos just love line dancing. They are much better at it than I ever was.
it be good thing when catholic so-called education
just go away for good
parents – do yo duty
