    The guy dressed in the suit and tie, smiling and shaking a bevy of hands, caught Grayson Thomas’ eye.

    Grayson wasn’t alone. Teachers and other students at Stevenson Ranch Elementary School couldn’t take their eyes off the lunchtime visitor, either.

    Grayson, a fifth-grader at the campus near Santa Clarita, Ca., noticed the gentleman’s outward characteristics: Tall and lean. Good looking. Charismatic. Charming. Energetic.

    Then he made a fatal error: Grayson, 11, pulled a little “made you look” joke on a schoolmate seated next to him, saying something along the lines of “Obama’s visiting our school today,” referring to the magnetic figure holding court nearby.

    Hopefully there is a book depository next to your school.

    Well I've been labeled a racist by most at MSNBC because of my disagreeing with the President
    so I guess this makes sense.If some guy in a suit who looked like Bush showed up
    and the kid did the same thing no one would have cared.

    Sounds to me like the kid will be better off in another school. Assuming there's one that's not in the same PC trap as this one.

    I want to know why little Shelbi, her father, the teacher, the principal and the superintendent are so thinned skinned and insecure. Had the president been white/brown/yellow/red/blue/purple and the same comparison/joke made . . . no one would be crying racism. Know why? Cause it isn't.

    Francis needs to lighten up . . . er, figuratively speaking. Wouldn't want anyone calling me racist over that remark. :rolleyes:

    Expelling an 11-year-old kid from school for making an off-the-cuff remark? That's about the stupidest thing I've ever heard of! That's so dumb. It would've been one thing if a teacher or principal who'd overheard the comment had taken the kid aside and corrected him, maybe, but expelling him's not the answer. Tactics such as expulsion will merely fan the flames of age-old, already-existing racial hatred here in the United States.

    It is only these liberal teachers who saw racism that only they can see.
