Recently my high school aged daughter and some friends were having a discussion in History. One of the kids brought up the subject of children. My daughter said:
Children are nothing but a black hole of need.
One of the ignorant morons in the group immediately said “That’s Racist!” (say what?!?)
The teacher happened by then and turned to my daughter and said “You can’t say such things.” To which my daughter replied “What should I say, ‘children are a white hole of need’?!?” The teacher then asked if she wanted to go to the principal’s office.
Okay, I can understand (but not excuse) the stupidity on the part of the student for not knowing what a black hole is. After all, the poor ignoramus was raised in public schools. But what’s the teacher’s execuse?
