Think Your Kids Are Safe in School Do You?

Creative Loafing Charlotte | News | Cover | They shoot gays, don't they? You can reassure yourselves that your kids aren't gay. (Are you sure? Parents are never the first to know.) But it is not too long a stretch to say that others could have been injured when Lawrence King was shot and killed.

Larry King was bullied for years. Teachers knew and did nothing.
Another classmate told the Los Angeles Times, "You'd hear, 'Faggot! Hey faggot!' That was happening in every class."
Do you think the teachers didn't know?

Is that what is being taught in public schools? That hate is OK? That bullying is OK? Would they have stopped someone from bullying a kid in a wheelchair? Or the lone Jew in class of Christians? Some hate is better than others? Minorities are only safe if they are minorities you like. If you don't like them, well then, "Boys will be boys." Interesting lesson.
