Got this sent in to me from a reader about a week ago, and while you might have heard about, you may not have - and if you haven't - you really should.
The parent of a Chaska Middle School West student was looking over her kid's Facebook page when she noticed another student complaining that someone had slapped her that day in school. Someone replied to that post saying that it was because it was "Slap an Asian Day" in school.Just guessing that Principal Sheryl Hough doesn't really know a lot of people from the APIA community, nor does she care about us either.
The parent followed that post down a Facebook rabbit hole and discovered that yet another student had declared an official "Slap an Asian Day." It was supposed to be today.
With the clock ticking until Slap an Asian Day, the parent contacted the Chaska police department.
After receiving the complaint, the Chaska Middle School West's police liaison went on Facebook and identified the poster, a 6th grade boy. His parents were called and the student was brought in for a serious talk.
"This young man thought he was being funny with a closed circle of friends, not realizing Facebook goes everywhere," says Chaska Police Chief Scott Knight.
I wonder if they had "smack little white bitches by kids of color day" that she would think it was a "non-issue" and a "joke"?
And yes (just in case you were questioning yourself) - the title of my fictitious post is just as offensive as the original.
