A Teacher Told A Young Boy To Stand For The Pledge, What He Did After Is Purely Disgusting!
When most of us were in school, we did the Pledge of Allegiance at the beginning of the day before any actual classroom work was done.
The way I remember it, it went Pledge, attendance and capped off with the teacher reading what was for lunch that day.
It was something that was done that wasn’t even thought about because it was something that was done as a matter of respect.
These days, you would have a better time finding a unicorn than you would a school that has its students recite the Pledge in the morning.
Even worse, there are some parents that for whatever reason make it a point to tell their children that somehow the Pledge is racist. That’s the one that really should leave some people scratching their heads.
An 11-year-old Florida student was arrested for allegedly threatening to beat his teacher because he refused to recite the Pledge of Allegiance, calling the pledge “racist” to black people.
The boy was removed from a classroom at Lawton Chiles Middle Academy in Lakeland, Florida, and arrested by a school resource officer on February 4 after he allegedly refused to obey school officials’ orders, Bay News 9 reported Friday.
The officer then took the sixth-grader to a juvenile detention center, where officials charged him two misdemeanor offenses— disrupting a school function and resisting arrest without violence. School officials also suspended him for three days.
The alleged incident began when a substitute teacher asked the student to stand for the pledge.
The student, who usually does not stand for the pledge, replied that he would not participate in the Pledge of Allegiance because he believed the American flag is racist and the national anthem is offensive towards black people.
The substitute teacher pushed back, telling district officials she told the student, “Why if it was so bad here, he did not go to another place to live.”
“They brought me here,” the boy reportedly replied.
“Well you can always go back, because I came here from Cuba and the day I feel I’m not welcome here anymore I would find another place to live,” the teacher then reportedly answered, before calling in other school officials to deal with the student.
Things escalated when the boy allegedly refused to follow school officials’ orders, called them racists, threatened to beat the teacher and get the school officials fired, according to the arrest affidavit.
