Why Are Some CHS Students Spewing Racist Hate?

  Reading Richard Hyatt’s report about the vile, racist, threatening remarks made on the Internet by a group of Columbus High School students was an astounding experience.  What in the world is going on that some kids at the city’s college prep magnate could spew this type of hate and venom about the first African American to be elected President of the United States?  Hyatt reports that two CHS students founded the group called “Not My President.”    

  I was reluctant to even mention this because the incident could fan the fires of racial discord, but I realize, also, that it cannot be ignored. It has to be faced and dealt with, especially since more than 400 students, most from Columbus High, joined the Facebook group. Hyatt reports that two CHS students founded the group called “Not My President.”    

  I was hoping that the election of Barack Obama would foster the greatest racial harmony this country has ever seen. The fact that he was easily elected showed that the majority of Americans desire that harmony, and reports indicate that most of the the rest of the world feel that way.
