Must not mention black gang bangers

Black gangs are notorious but you must not associate blacks with gangs?

A group of roughly two dozen students walked out of Lowell High School in San Francisco Tuesday morning in response to an offensive sign posted on a window at the school’s library this month.

The sign, which was posted on Feb. 5, read “Happy Black History Month #Gang” along with photos the school’s principal said “were insensitive to the racial stereotyping of black people that is far too prevalent in our society.” The photos showed several hip-hop artists and other African American entertainers along with President Obama, according to the school.

While the message was removed, black students remained “outraged by the use of ‘#gang’ as it refers to black students and Black History Month negatively. In response to this clear anti-blackness, past incidents of racism and an uncomfortable climate for black students, the Black Student Union” scheduled the walkout — according to the student youth group Afrikan Black Coalition.

Just after 9 a.m., at least a couple dozen students emerged from the school and stood in line at the main entrance holding signs that said, “Black Minds Matter,” “Don’t Stereotype Us” and “We Are Young Black Scholars.” They later held a rally at City Hall.

“We Are Young Black Scholars”

Some students who happen to be black do try to make the most of their chance to get an education. But far, far too many just sit in class as "schol" at the teacher.

Stereotyping happens for a reason. In this instance the reason is rampant black violence: black on black and, increasingly, black on white. Those who ignore this, whistling past the graveyard in the name of PC, may soon find themselves in that graveyard.

Oops. So much for proofreading. That last sentence should read like this:

But far, far too many just sit in class and "schol" at the teacher.

"youth group Afrikan Black Coalition" Maybe they should move to Africa if that is who they identify with. I'm sure they would have "rosy" lives there.

Some blacks need to stop working so hard at being "black".
They should try just being responsible people.

"Gang bang" is also a term used in the UK and perhaps other countries.
