This prank may culminate in a Neo-Nazi rally at Washburn later this afternoon.
:::: UPDATE :::: Washburn High parent concerned black doll incident could lead to racial violence [INTERVIEW]

A handful of Washburn High School students were disciplined after a black doll was found hanging from a noose in a school stairwell on January 11.

The Independent Business News Network's Don Allen reports that three students were suspended for one day (January 18 update: Though the school still hasn't publicly disclosed the punishments, it appears four students were suspended for as many as four days and one student may have been expelled.) But  the most interesting part of Allen's post pertains to how a white pride group plans to respond to the suspensions.

From IBNN:
Today, January 17th at 4:30 p.m. - a community "open" meeting will be held at Washburn High School located at 201 W 49th Street, Minneapolis, MN 55419...

The Lincoln Brigade of the Republican Party from Springfield, Illinois has alerted IBNN NEWS that a Neo-Nazis organization from southern Minnesota is organizing in support of "white" rights and will attend tonight's meeting at Washburn High School in Minneapolis...

The Minnesota Alliance of Black School Educators (MABSE), invites every black organization including the Minneapolis Urban League, NAACP, Student African American Brotherhood & Sisterhood, Black Man Stand Up Movement, AME and other black student groups are encouraged to attend this meeting about race, racism and how in 2013 this could happen.
The Star Tribune reports that students distributed images of the hanging doll via social media. Security cameras also captured footage of the incident.

Ron Edwards -- the same African-American community activist who accused the Timberwolves of stuffing their roster with white players in hopes of selling tickets to white fans -- told the Strib the hanging doll incident is "causing things to reach a very dangerous level."

Washburn High School Principal Carol Markham-Cousins wrote a letter to parents denouncing the behavior of the students. Click to page two to read it in its entirety.

2:40 p.m. -- David Brauer reports that the community meeting discussed by Don Allen is a bunch of baloney:

Keny1....if you read, you'll find out that white people are the majority that rely on Welfare! You are too funny! Hahahahahahaha

Sounds to me like a few snot-nosed entitled Tangletown/Linden Hills/Minnehaha Creek brats making a "funny joke" like Daddy does after listening to Rush and watching Hannity.  Since the kids are going to get Daddy's money, they've earned the right to do anything they want to and anyone who holds them accountable is just jealous and hates success.  The kids are already being deprived, the poor dears, because the downturn in the economy means Daddy can't send them to private school, Southwest is jammed-full, and they're not good enough at sports to get recruited to Hopkins or Edina so they had to go to downscale Washburn.

Carol Markham-Cousins is smart and a good principal.  She's probably already dealt with this just fine.  No need to give it more importance than it deserves.  And let Ron Edwards and "keny1" duke it out if they need the attention so much.

Maybe this was a way to show the black girls (Hoes) who get knocked up at the age of 15 that people are sick of their tax dollars going to Welfare mama's and their illegitimate "chirrins" while supporting their criminal "baby daddies".


No Um Sayin?

I find it kinda funny that one "white" group was headed to this fake meeting and like 5 "black" groups were going but only the white group is pointed in the headline. Seems likes this article itself is racist.

Only a 1 day suspension? One week suspension along with school counseling seem in order.

Unbelievable how quickly we, as a nation, are losing ground on important battles we have already fought. Racism, sexism, tolerance. Disgusting and disturbing.

@keny1 Hey Rupar, its your best friend.  You ever going to ban the violent racist troll or does he actually have to kill some one first.  Racist pieces of trash like keny attack and kill people all the time because of their tiny penises and rage issues.  Why won't you ban this stupid violent idiot?

@MicheleBachmann: Keny1 might a  "racist," but can you at least concede his point that productive members of society are reasonably outraged that they have to foot the bill for irresponsible people who have children they cannot support?
