Too white: Principal withholds student government election results

Student Government, Election, Vote
Student Government, Election, Vote

This just in from the People’s Republic of San Francisco…

A middle school principal refuses to release the results of their student government elections because… wait for it… the results were too white. That’s right folks. Too many white kids were elected to the council, and that supposedly does not accurately reflect the student population, since more than 80% is non-white. Forget the fact that those “non-whites” cast ballots for those “whites” who won.

The principal says the results are:

“Concerning to me because as principal I want to make sure the voices are all heard, from all backgrounds.”

One 7th-grader who ran for a position responded with:

“The organizers are saying things like, ‘we want everyone’s voice to be heard,’ but in truth, the voters’ voices are not being heard. The whole school voted for those people, so it is not like people rigged the game, but in a way, now it is kinda being rigged.”

Hmmm… this kid has potential!

What’s the principal’s lesson for the kids here? You should only vote for people in your same race or ethnicity?

Student government is supposed to mimic our representative form of government so that the kids get a feel for how our FEDERAL government actually works in practice. It’s done by ballot, not by administrative fiat.

If this isn’t teaching racism, I don’t know what is.
