A Student SLAMS His Principal to the Ground; Will the Media Call This Racism, Too?

A Student SLAMS His Principal to the Ground; Will the Media Call This Racism, Too?

Earlier this week, the media was quick to cry racism when a video showed a white police officer dragging a black teenager out of her chair in her classroom — even though another video showed that the teenager had punched the officer first. So by those standards, should we be expecting the media to call this school altercation racist, too?

The principal for a Sacramento area high school was slammed to the ground by a student when he tried to step in and stop a fight that had erupted in the cafeteria.

A YouTube video recorded on a student’s camera phone shows the school’s common area in complete chaos as a brawl erupted among a handful of teenagers on Monday.

When Florin High School Principal Don Ross stepped in to calm things down, one student took hold of him, and threw him to the ground before rejoining the fight.

Ross managed to get back on his feet and grab the student from behind as a deputy from the Sacramento Sheriff’s Department arrived on the scene.

Three students were arrested in connection to the Monday fight, with two facing battery charges and the third facing charges for making threats.

Ross was not badly injured, and told local Fox40 that he’s looking forward to returning to work.

Let’s be real here: there’s nothing racist in this video, and it would be ridiculous to say that there was. But if we’re going to cry racism every time there’s any kind of altercation between people of two different races, then why is this the difference?
