The Political Agitator response: Damn this is too gooood! But the sad part some intelligent ignant a+s black folks don’t even understand that they are being treated the same way in corporate America. I am not ignant to how I am being treated. Damn shame!
There was a time not so long ago when Americans, regardless of their political stripes, rallied round their president. Once elected, the man who won the White House was no longer viewed as a republican or democrat, but the President of the United States. The oath of office was taken, the wagons were circled around the country’s borders and it was America versus the rest of the world with the president of all the people at the helm.

To say that the child did nothing wrong is just ignant as hell.
What I do know is that my son better not ever do something of this sort in a classroom. Yes I have no problem with him standing up for what he believe in but he better not ever go back and forth with a grown up in authority. If he has a problem with a teacher he better come home and tell me instead of going back and forth.
Huff Post: Amateur footage of Tanya Dixon-Neely, a social studies teacher at North Rowan High School in Spencer, N.C., telling a student he could be arrested for saying negative things about President Barack Obama has gone viral on the Internet, prompting school officials to launch an investigation, WBTV reports.
