And the Pussification of the America Continues: Kid Gets Denied Diploma Because His Family Cheered Too Loud When His Name Was Called
CINCINNATI – Winning football teams are use to a lot of cheering. But for the second leading tackler of the Mt. Healthy Fighting Owls, cheering has earned Anthony Cornist a penalty he doesn’t think he deserves. “It’s crazy how somebody can do that to you,” he said from his family’s living room Monday. When Anthony walked across the stage at his high school graduation, his family made some noise. “Teachers, other students and other family members who weren’t with us were also cheering for him also. He’s well known,” Traci said.The excitement proved too much for the administration.Instead of a diploma, Anthony got a letter from the principal, Marlon Styles, Jr. “I will be holding your diploma in the main office,” the letter said, “due to the excessive cheering your guests displayed during the roll call.” “I did nothing wrong except walk across the stage,” Anthony said. The school demands 20 hours of community service before he can graduate.Calls to the principal, the district superintendent as well as a visit to Mt. Healthy High School have all gone unanswered.
School administrators just doing the damn thing per usual. Making up their own rules. Refusing to answer for their actions. Doing shit that would make Stalin blush. I mean there is no chance this is legal. You can’t withhold a diploma because people cheered for you at graduation. You just can’t. If you want to hold back this kid’s diploma because he can barely read that’s one thing. But cheering too loudly? Yo that’s what black people do homey. Doesn’t matter whether it’s a dunk contest, comedy show or high school graduation. They fucking whoop it up. Deal with it.
