should be fired.
A star high school athlete in rural Marshalltown, Iowa has been suspended for three football games this fall because he posted a social media image of himself enthusiastically festooned from head to toe in white clothing during school spirit week. In the photo, he made the letter “W” with his hands — which in this case stands for white.
The student’s parents say the the principal of Marshalltown High School called Van Staalduine a racist after concluding that his hand signal was a white pride symbol.
And why was he wearing white?
The school colors at Marshalltown High appear to be red, white and blue.
Van Staalduine wore white because school officials had asked members of
his class to wear white during school spirit week festivities.
Idiocy. Sheer, unadulterated idiocy.
