I applaud Jezebel for taking it upon themselves to call the school’s of the students who publicly tweeted their hatred toward President Obama’s re-election win. This is yet another example of the pervasive anti-black attitudes that continue to infect much of our society despite having an African-American president during what many assumed would be a post racial society. The teachers and administrators owe it to the offending students to issue swift disciplinary action as well as facilitate discussions around race. I pity high school students who are unable to co-exist peacefully in an America that is rapidly changing. High school should be a place where students begin to develop academically as well as socially to become productive and responsible citizens.
