DAILYKENN.com -- Teaching middle-schoolers not to "act black" got an Indiana coach suspended.
The offense reveals how deep the cultural Marxism mindset has penetrated our psyche. It also reveals the depth of leftist hypocrisy.
Critics of the girl's basketball coach effectively said that criticizing the ratchet behavior of black players was the equivalent of discriminating due to skin color.
Ironically, those critics unwittingly said that ratchet behavior is as innate to blacks a skin color, a view that most would consider patently racist.
A middle school teacher and coach who told her girls basketball team not to “act black” was suspended from her coaching duties, but some parents insist the suspension is not enough.
Vicki Rogers, a teacher and coach at Elkhart’s North Side Middle School, has been suspended from her coaching duties since Jan. 22 because she told her team to not “act black” and referred to the players on another area basketball team as “ghetto.” The comments were made prior to a Jan. 15 game and were confirmed in official records from the school and by Principal Sara Jackowiak in a meeting that was videotaped by a parent.
Rogers, a 30-year district employee, was allowed to continue teaching during the suspension.
At least a few parents of girls on the team were deeply offended and outraged by the comments, which they say send a message that black players should be hiding the color of their skin.
“I don’t want my daughter to feel like the color of her skin is something she needs to hide so she doesn’t come across as 'ghetto,’” said another mother of a player, who also would only speak anonymously. “That whole idea that the coach put in my daughter’s head is something I can never take back out. She has never identified as ignorant or not well-behaved because she is black.”
