...I think the gentlemen below had it right after all....According to Philly.com, a third grader “made a comment about the brownies being served to the class,” after which another student cried “racism,” prompting the school to call the Collingswood Police Department:On June 16, police were called to an unlikely scene: an end-of-the-year class party at the William P. Tatem Elementary School in Collingswood.A third grader had made a comment about the brownies being served to the class. After another student exclaimed that the remark was “racist,” the school called the Collingswood Police Department, according to the mother of the boy who made the comment.“He said they were talking about brownies…Who exactly did he offend?” said Stacy Dos Santos, the child’s mother, obviously angry about the school’s overreaction. “He was intimidated, obviously. There was a police officer with a gun in the holster talking to my son, saying, ‘Tell me what you said.’ He didn’t have anybody on his side.”The story doesn’t end there. Not long after contacting the boy’s father and grilling the preadolescent perp for his microaggressions toward brownies, the police referred the incident to New Jersey Division of Child Protection and Permanency.
