KANSAS CITY STAR CONTINUES CATHOLIC SCHOOL ATTACK: HOOPZ RAGES AGAINST ALLEGED ST. TERESA'S RACISM!!!
In the latest opus from Hoopz, she "reports" racist hearsay regarding the alleged racism of Kansas City Catholic mean girls.
Jeneé Osterheldt: For this student, swastika is one piece of unrelenting racism at KC Catholic school
This "newsflash" that high-school students can be mean might be the worst bit of "journalism" of the week in all of Kansas City.
However, we believe the student interviewed SHOULD NOT BE SUBJECT TO ANY CRITICISM. She's a youngster and dealing with her own issues.
TKC is a graduate of Catholic high school and we don't doubt racist comments or question overall meanness.
But here's a new flash . . .
Attending an elite Catholic high school can also be tough for:
- Poor people
- Youngsters with acne
- The short, fat, tall, shy, outgoing or awkward.
There is no limit to the cruelty of youngsters left to their own devices. Further reading Lord Of The Flies . . . The new movie version is gonna feature a female cast in the lead roles.
The bigger question is why The Star focuses their attack "journalism" on an elite Catholic High School when so many other problems confront teens and their parents in Kansas City.
This story is about insults, personal slights and tough talk that's pretty mild compared to what's in the comments of most social media and online forums.
In the final analysis, the focus on these personal and highly subjective allegations rather than tackling broader social issues in Kansas City could be part of why the newspaper continues to lose advertisers and subscribers.
