It's only a crime if there's no mustard

First, schools became peanut-free, so that the one student out of two thousand who has an allergy wouldn't prove natural selection to the masses by standing too close to someone's PB&J. But this...

On April 11, a white student placed a ham steak in a bag on a lunch table where Somali students were eating. Muslims consider pork unclean and offensive.

The act reminded students of a man who threw a pig's head into a Lewiston mosque last summer.

The school incident is being treated seriously as "a hate incident"

A hate incident? A piece of ham is hate? Idiots - imagine what they would have done if they'd seen me chase those two small Somali brats around the supermarket last Fall, weilding a bloody roast pork....

The boy said he looked up at students he thought were his friends. "I felt angered, offended."

He suddenly felt like he was alone. "At the school the next day, I didn't feel safe. I felt like everybody was against me. Before I felt like I fit in, and everything was normal."

He began to think white students didn't like him, and the act was their way of letting him know.

On Thursday, several students came up to him and said, "Those guys who did it were jerks. I apologize for them, and I hope you feel better."

The boy said they did make him feel better. "But for the rest of my life when I remember middle school, this will pop up right away."

Somebody needs to learn to get over themselves, methinks.
