I experienced this 1st hand at both of my sisters 8th grade graduations. I live in a very diverse community so you can find just about every possible race imaginable around our area. I am not a racist, but sure, I have prejudices just like everyone else (don't lie and say you don't). At both graduations, during the roll call of graduates, there was obnoxious outbursts, whooping, hooting and hollering when a certain child's name was said. Now, before they begin announcing the graduates, the announcer tells you specifically to hold your applause to the end so that EVERY name can be heard! I find it so fucking ignorant to not only show complete disrespect to other graduates and their families by whooping loudly so that others names can't be heard, but to not even listen to the speakers directions. How fucking obnoxious! I was so angry during both of my sisters graduations and it kind of ruined a very special moment.
This one school "made students and parents sign a contract promising they would remain silent or the students wouldn't receive their diplomas." Seriously, you should NEVER have to sign a contract spelling that out and the fact that this has been established is a pathetic show of the ignorance in our society. I am pissed off at the fact that people are saying that, "it is more about race than etiquette." Shut the fuck up and put your race card back in your fucking pocket! You cannot eliminate the fact that the primary race that is this obnoxious at graduations is black! This statement is a generalization and of course other races participate in this ignorant behavior, but you cannot hide the fact of majority rules.
So all of a sudden it is racist to think that you should be respectful at a graduation!
Give me a fucking break! Graduation is an emotional event for families, but you can shoot off guns and whoop and celebrate at home when it doesn't drown out the names of other graduates. It is important that every graduates name be heard and that obnoxious cunt families don't disrespect that! The only reason this is becoming a racial issues is because some races need to make everything into a racial issue, maybe if they hung up the race baiter bullshit for once we could end all this entitlement crap and finally move the fuck on!
I don't think that the students should be punished because they are in a family full of ignorant disrespectful dick hole cunt rags - but really, what other solution is there? I don't care if you all think I am a racist bitch, this shit is just fucked up!
Leave race out of it and be respectful at graduations - it's that simple! FUCK!
