Yesterday morning three kids boarded a PUBLIC
school bus headed for a PUBLIC
school in Minnesota. After taking their seats, the bus driver informed them he would not be giving them a ride home later that afternoon...or ever again.[See Patrick Cleburne`s post, below:Ethnic privilege in St Paul
for more. ]
Although the kiddies had taken this particular bus many times before they no longer qualified for passage because this bus was now reserved for Hmong-speaking students and ONLY Hmong-speaking students.
The school district apparently apologized for stranding the kids at school without a ride but made no apologies for their blatant discrimination against English-speaking students. Additionally, they have no intention of changing the policy.
This type of anti-American, anti-English language
behavior happens often these days but rarely do we find the perpetrators to be so self-righteous and quite frankly, indignant.
Your tax dollars at work...
