SHAME!!! JOCO MOM REVEALS DAUGHTER SUFFERED NAZI SALUTE AT SCHOOL!!!
Context and the big picture . . .
The U.S. Jewish community experienced near-historic levels of anti-Semitism in 2018, including a doubling of anti-Semitic assaults and the single deadliest attack against the Jewish community in American history, according to new data from ADL -- the Anti-Defamation League
In schools across the nation, reports of antisemitism are on the rise.
Accordingly, our blog community notes this very recent allegation of antisemitic behavior in the Golden Ghetto via social media testimony that's gaining traction.
Here's the word:
So yesterday another middle-schooler approached my daughter and asked if she was Jewish. When she said yes, he gave her the Nazi salute.
I will not be quiet. I have not been silent when racist or anti-Semitic things have occurred at my children's schools. A few years ago, one of my girls came home with a hat that had the Confederate flag on it and I was not quiet about it. Another mom at the school called me out. She told me to "quit making the school look bad."
NEWS FLASH: IT'S NOT ABOUT THE SCHOOL. THIS ALL STARTS AT HOME. THESE KIDS LEARN THIS SH*T FROM THEIR PARENTS FIRST.
So yeah. It's happening everywhere. Your kids's school, my kids' school, Starbucks, nightclubs, kids in cages, this administration, all of it.
Teach your kids kindness. And teach them about racism, sexism, homophobia, antisemitism. Teach them acceptance and inclusion, not the Nazi Salute.
Thanks for coming to my TED talk.
"No updates to give. Principal was "not in" yesterday morning. I waited for 20 minutes or so, and was told email was the best way to get a hold of her. So I emailed (again) requesting a time to discuss last week's events. I still have not gotten a response. Waiting until noon today before deciding what to do next. In the interim, appreciating the support of you all, along with some other Jewish families at school."
