    Racial Profiling In A Friggin' High School Yearbook?

    http://www.nbc4.com/education/4520186/detail.html


    WAXAHACHIE, Texas -- A North Texas school district has apologized to a student identified only as "Black Girl" in a high school yearbook photo of the school's National Honor Society.

    All white students are identified by name in the photograph in the Waxahachie High School yearbook distributed Friday.

    The teen identified as "Black Girl" is the only black student in the photo.

    Waxahachie school district spokeswoman Candace Ahlfinger said the district and the school board issued an immediate apology when the caption was reported.

    Ahlfinger said the caption apparently was intended as a placeholder until the yearbook staff could identify the student.

    She told the Waxahachie Daily Light that the label was a poor choice, but it was not meant maliciously nor meant to be printed.

    She said the district is having the four pages affected by the mistake reprinted as soon as possible.

    That's just wrong. Wonder if they woulda put "White Girl" if they couldn't identify one of the white girls in the picture? Hmm...

    Not quite as offensive as this story, but does anyone remember this?

    It's situations like this that remind me of the new movie "Crash" that's out right now. Some sad stuff that goes on in the world today.

    A place holder until the student could be identified? How about "Unidentified" or _____________ ?

    What a bunch of idiots.

    This was all over the news here in Dallas. I accept their explanation that it was just a place holder, it was never meant to be printed, it was an honest mistake by a student, etc. (although they could've just put GIRL or NAME or even XXXXX). BUT man, that REALLY looks bad. I feel for the girl (Shadoya Jones is her name, BTW) - how humiliating. Her comment: "I am disappointed they didn't catch the error. I just felt like all my achievements, everything I have been working so hard for, went down the drain, basically." Her Mom's comment: "There should not have been a mistake. Everyone knows her, she's been there for four years." And if it truly was a naive, honest mistake, I feel for the student who did it too. If that was me, I would feel horrible - I couldn't apologize enough. Just an unfortunate situation all around.

    I don't find it at all amusing. I understand the explanation and everything, and I'm sure it was an error in judgement by the student. Next time the kid has just gotta use his/her head.

    Yeah, reducing someones friend, daughter and/or sister from a living,breathing person with thoughts ideas and feelings to "black girl" is a hoot.

    It's disgusting and there's nothing funny about it. A mistake? Maybe, but it's a piss poor lack in judgement.

    What the fuck does the President have to do with this?

    The buck stops with the dumbfucksticks on the yearbook staff, the fuckstick who wrote it in the first place and the editor who was too stupid to catch it.

    Dubya, what the fuck?? Keerrryst, you are such a fucking dumbass. If the President is such a racist then when did his minions in the Senate almost wreck the Constitutional process just so they could ram that Owens chick through confirmation ? If he's such a racist, why would he risk all that for a BLACK WOMAN? Did you even know she was black? Did you even know who she is?

    This kind of lack of focus is going to put another Republican in the White House in 2008. This is a story about some morons who fucked up a yearbook. The President isn't mentioned anywhere in the story.
