Maybe these children were traumatized by a mural of George Washington, see George Washington mural 'traumatizes' San Fran students, or G-d Bess America, see Racism, Kate Smith & School Brawls.

I don't think this is a time for jokes. I certainly don't find that video funny at all.

Thugs like these girls drives my son crazy. As a black man he detests ignorant people who insist upon being a stereotype. It also causes him to have deal with ignorant co-workers asking stupid questions.

I'll quote him on these particular girls.
"10 years from now they will have 5 kids each, 5 different fathers each, although maybe the same father pumped them both making them enemies for an hour. They will be on TV complaining that they can't get a job because everyone is prejudice and welfare doesn't pay enough. They will have dreadlocks and custom nails and only be 150 pounds over weight."

That's his prediction of their future. I can't say that I disagree. It's like some people are on a mission to make their own race look as bad as possible.

I didn't make a joke. And frankly until I watched I thought the perpetrators were Amish, Mennonite or Reform Jewish people.

So they just jumped on her out of nowhere? If this is in their character, they would have done it before.

Almost 10 percent were threatened with injury, according to federal education data. 12% of those teacher victims of verbal or physical violence saw a counselor or mental health professional after the violent incident. Additionally, 1 in 5 teachers who were the victims of physical attacks, threats of physical violence or verbal aggression/intimidation did not report that violence to school administrators, according to a 2017 survey. Fourteen percent of the victims didn't tell their colleagues about the violence. Twenty-four percent didn't even tell their families.

The first 10-20 years of my teaching career I did not know a single teacher who had been assaulted, and I only knew a couple who had been threatened with assault. Every one of the students involved in those threats had been expelled.

Since around the late 90’s that has dramatically changed. I now know numerous teachers who have been threatened, an alarmingly high number who have been actually assaulted, a shocking number who were physically harmed, and unfortunately, some who have been permanently injured. I also know some who quit teaching over it, including some who ended up with PTSD. In most cases the kid returned not only back to school in a week or often less, but usually to that teacher’s classroom.

It is too common of an occurrence in schools these days. Far too common. And in far too many cases the teacher finds themselves re-victimized by the school system for “allowing it to happen”.
right, they may have angered the sweet children by saying something.

As I said, if you work in a liberal school system, you have to know what you're getting yourself into.

My answer to your question is to know the environment you are getting into.
