Racist Teens Forced to Answer for Tweets About the Brotha Man President
 

Racist Teens Forced to Answer for Tweets About the ‘Brotha Man’ President

We contacted their school's administrators with the hope that, if their educators were made aware of their students' ignorance, perhaps they could teach them about racial sensitivity. Or they could let them know that while the First Amendment protects their freedom of speech, it doesn't protect them from the consequences that might result from expressing their opinions. (For example, an adult woman is currently http://fox40.com/2012/11/07/secret-service-investigating-turlock-womans-facebook-post/" rel="nofollow -

Additionally, several of the teens use imagery of their high schools' sports teams on their Twitter accounts and Facebook pages. If nothing else, it's reasonable to alert administrators to the behavior of the students who are publicly representing their schools.


Ricky Catanzaro plays football for http://www.xaverian.org/" rel="nofollow - - athlete's contract that stipulates a promise "to be a worthy representative of my teammates and coaches, abiding by school and community expectations."

The day after the election he tweeted, "No Brotha Man should lead this country!!! #Romney" His https://twitter.com/ricky_catanzaro" rel="nofollow -

Only thing black people are good at is basketball https://twitter.com/search/%23run" rel="nofollow - - #shot https://twitter.com/search/%23steal" rel="nofollow - - November 7, 2012

While a call to the principal was not returned, an administrative assistant at the school said, "They are aware of [the tweets] and they are dealing with it."

He must've been reprimanded, though, because later in the day Catanzaro tweeted that he was "in trouble" and claimed that his Twitter had been hacked.

Who ever is on my twitter stop making tweets I'm getting in trouble for it !!! https://twitter.com/search/%23why" rel="nofollow - - November 8, 2012

His https://twitter.com/ricky_catanzaro" rel="nofollow -

Stehl Taylor plays hockey at http://www.cysd.k12.pa.us/" rel="nofollow - - student handbook which students are required "to keep with them throughout the entire school day." According to the handbook students are subject to suspension for "name-calling" or "making fun of personal characteristics such as race [or] ethnicity."

On election day Taylor tweeted, "About time we get this monkey out of office #GoBackToTheZoo" and "Hope Obama dies."

Julie Romig, the Director of Communications of the school district said, "We are aware of it. We are addressing it but we do not comment on individual students." When pressed about whether comments like the ones Taylor made clash with the school's code of conduct, Romig reiterated that she couldn't comment. Taylor's https://twitter.com/STaylorMade95" rel="nofollow -

Addison Sykes, a football player at Jackson Christian School in Jackson, TN tweeted, "Lol Obama may be the president but even he still needs welfare. #Brotha Man"

The school's president, Dr. Rick Brooks was the most forthcoming of all the administrators on how the situation was handled by releasing the following statement:

Addison's words clearly do not reflect the values that we espouse and teach at Jackson Christian School, and are not representative of our broader school community. As such, we have visited with him about his actions and his attitude, and have disciplined him accordingly. As is our school policy, we will not share information about specific discipline cases.

Though we find Addison's action and words deplorable, we hope that our continued encouragement and teaching will help him further avoid the mistakes of youth, and will help him to mature as a young man. I hope that you will be able to look beyond what he has done, and toward the man that he can and will become from this unfortunate learning experience.


After the election, Kodie Girton tweeted, "The movie 2012 first New York floods and there is a Brotha Man in office also. See a coinensadince." A quick Google search brought up a http://www.thebraziltimes.com/story/1853103.html" rel="nofollow -

Girton has since https://twitter.com/KG39baseball" rel="nofollow -

Gabe Dutch tweeted, "I hope the world does end in December so we won't have to suffer another four years with that monkey in office # Obama"

Alexa Barba-Tepper, assistant principal at http://www.vusd.org/redwood.cfm" rel="nofollow - - comment on the original post on Jezebel, imploring people to not make assumptions about her brother, and suggested that perhaps he made his comments on Twitter due to "social pressures" in his small town, which, however, do not keep him from "dating an African."

As a sister to Gabe, who is dating an African I know that he is not racist. We must look at the environment that these people grew up in, and the views that are imposed on them by their parents and peers. There are social pressures, especially in small towns to be conservative. We must understand that an individuals brain is not done developing till well into their twenties, hence irrational decisions are made. These are not excuses, yet allows us to have see reasons for naivety. I am not here to try to make up for what my brother said, he must learn like we all have. But its a tough world out there, and you don't know these individuals backgrounds. So please, don't make assumptions. Remember it makes an ass out of you, and me. God bless.

Cole Krut, who attends http://bfhs.bigbeaverfalls.schoolfusion.us/?sessionid=724c3ecd3ce096589ae6c8c04f1db76a&t" rel="nofollow - A secretary at the school said that Principal Mary Beth Leeman "does know about [the tweets]." A message left for Mrs. Leeman was not returned.

That day Krut tweeted about the incident, "it was a joke.. Theres alot worse tweets out there..im not even 18," before https://twitter.com/Fort_Krut17" rel="nofollow -

Davis Moody's numerous tweets regarding the election were particularly offensive. He called the president a "monkey," made several violent threats about the south "rising again" and said he was "willing to spill blood" among other aggressive remarks.

The http://www.millcreekhighschool.org/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=47&Itemid=88" rel="nofollow - - deleted his Twitter account.


Demi Keely, who has been http://www.voy.com/162111/51.html" rel="nofollow - - Miss Louisiana Prom Girl , displayed her inner-beauty when she tweeted "If you going for the monkey, shoot yourself, seriously."

Brandon Norrie, a baseball player at Sickles High School in Tampa, FL said, "If your voting for Obama just because hes black and you are too, thats some Brotha Man sh*t."

He has since insisted he was hacked.

Whatever the case, they surely will have learned the lesson about how their conversations on social media are not private and that their words do, indeed, have an impact.

Well, Well, Well....

It's all cute until you get the spotlight shown on you.. Now all of a sudden, they are hacked and deleted.. If you feel that way, stand by your words.. No need to back down now because the media put that spotlight in your life..
 
I bet money if people were blowing up their timeline with racial slurs about them, they would instantly run crying to their parents and play that "victim role" that they love to play so much.. Sleepy
 
It is getting to the point that their saltiness is looking rather pathetic..

Actually I feel kind of sorry for these kids.  When I was a teenager, pretty much there wasn't anything I could do that would be seen around the world unless I was a psycho mass murderer. 

With social media nowadays, you do one stupid act and BAM-- 500,000 people can tweet/read/u tube it in hours. And then google it when you start looking for a job...

All this mess will come back to bite these kids when they apply for colleges, jobs, or even scare off potential dating prospects.

I'm glad that Jezebel did this.

there is no privacy on the internet. if you put your real name and school on there, and type some crazy ish, expect to be exposed.

if you call the president of the united states names like that, expect the secret service.

consequence is no coincidence.

these kids will be more upset at being called racist anyway.
