      That judge needs to be prosecuted . . . With extreme prejudice.

        Sadly, I just won a bet. I bet my wife a dinner out that this involved injustice for Black kids (before I read the fucking story). And people wonder why Blacks in this country are pissed!!

          Shameful goings on, and worse, apparently perfectly acceptable to lots of people.

            What do you expect from the South.

            This is nothing more than state sanctioned depravity against black children. And all in the name of God.

              Is there no recourse to stop these cretins?

                I should have known that the judge would claim she was doing God’s work!

                  Stop broadstroking entire regions. There are good guys and bad guys everywhere. I grew up in Connecticut, generally considered a genteel place to live, but I saw just as many jerks there as I saw in California, Pennsylvania, Maryland and Florida, all the places I've lived.

                      A really, really good idea.

                        An uncharacteristic and unwarranted blanket condemnation.

                          I guess this could be considered the South:

                            Meanwhile.....

                            BREAKING: Texas Gov. Greg Abbott has issued an executive order prohibiting vaccine mandates “by any entity.” This issue has been added to the special Legislative session.

                              We do still have racism in New Zealand and while we still have a ways to go, the racism in NZ is miniscule compared to the USA.

                              And what is state sanctioned, tolerated and allowed to flourish in some states like Tennessee does not happen in NZ.
