Re: “Opinion: A personal take on Watermelongate from a parent who feels a different kind of outrage

Perhaps the most confounding part of this entire debacle is how closed-minded a certain section of the "smart" high school is. The black community tells you that it's historically racist in an effort to combat all the "it's just a watermelon" rhetoric. Considering that we are talking about a school, it would be nice if people would actually try to learn something, perhaps research the history, and understand that context does indeed matter. The watermelon-bashing, monkey-dancing ritual is racist with plenty of history behind it. Learn something. School is meant for learning. And those parents now suing over "defamation." Truth is an absolute defense. Hope your lawyer told you that.
